Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Carrot, onion & spinach bhajias

    • JJ2018 on May 17, 2019

      These were just ok. I liked the fact they contained a few veg but found them a bit bland and wouldn’t repeat

  • Paneer & broccoli masala

    • JJ2018 on May 17, 2019

      This was nice but for me not a game changer. A little bland - but that may have been how mild my chillis seemed.

  • Herby lamb kebabs

    • MollyB on January 10, 2019

      Wonderful recipe that I've made several times. We've liked it with a cucumber raita and rice, and are very good left over. They've varied in consistency the different times we've made them, and are sometimes hard to get onto skewers for grilling, but they work just fine as grilled patties if they fall off.

  • Foolproof pilau rice

    • okcook on April 16, 2017

      This is the easiest yet tasty rice you will ever make. It is my go to rice.

  • Wilted mustard greens

    • MollyB on April 18, 2018

      Very good mustard greens preparation. The heat of the chile and texture of the mustard seeds were great with the assertive taste of the greens. I will definitely make this again, and I might try it with other heartier greens, too.

  • Epicurious

    The recipes in The Indian Family Kitchen aren't as simple as the ones in last fall's Made In India, but they are definitely a good place to start for someone looking to get into Indian cooking.

Publishers Text

A fresh and friendly introduction to South Asian cuisine, The Indian Family Kitchen reflects how we cook today with seasonal and vegetable-forward recipes. This striking cookbook shows how to coax flavor out of your favorite foods by adding Indian spices: rub butternut squash with garam masala before roasting with salty feta and sun-dried tomatoes; marinate chicken wings in a punchy tandoori sauce; and brighten up a quinoa salad with ginger and cumin. 

You'll also find classics refined over the years by the granddaughter of the family that brough Patak's sauces and chutneys to households around the world. Throughout, The Indian Family Kitchen demystifies traditional cooking methods with kitchen shortcuts and the spices you should always have on hand—for delicious family meals that'll be loved by generation upon generation.
