Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Goan chicken and chorizo stew

    • meggan on February 12, 2021

      I over salted a tad. Still good but could use a little something fresh to brighten it.

  • Parsi poached eggs on potatoes

    • meggan on February 08, 2021

      I ended up finishing in the broiler to crisp it up. Topped with chili oil.

  • Easiest ever chicken pilaf

    • Foodycat on October 19, 2015

      Has a lot of flavour for so few ingredients. It was a bit tricky to get the rice evenly cooked though - the grains at the bottom were overcooked and a bit gloopy while the ones at the top were only just cooked.

Indian food is one of the UK's favourite cuisines, so why don't we cook it more often at home? This book is the answer: Anjum shows how we can all create a delicious curry in just 20 minutes, and provides tips on stocking your cupboards with time-saving 'cheat' ingredients and a plethora of hints on how to make cooking Indian at home as easy as possible, while the 'Take One - ' feature shows you how to make three great meals from just one storecupboard ingredient. Whether you're feeding the family, puzzling over how to jazz up vegetable dishes, or entertaining friends, there's something here for every occasion. A plethora of spicy salads, using fresh vegetables and grains, will suit the modern lighter style of eating, while a chapter of fabulously fresh Indian 'tapas' makes entertaining a dream. After a busy day at work, throw together Anjum's lamb kebabs with a yoghurt-apricot relish in 10 minutes flat, or make tandoori salmon tacos that children will adore. And save room for pudding; a luscious ginger chai tiramisu will satisfy the most jaded palate!
