Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Masala grilled aubergine (eggplant)

    • SugarFree_Vegan on August 24, 2018

      What a great idea to mix spices with ground cashews and tahini to make a delicious 'rub'/coating for the aubergines whilst they are baking. Really tasty dish that is simple to make and goes very well with some warm naan bread.

    Lovely photographs fill the pages along with recipes that look as decadent and comforting as any other Indian cookbook (but these are created with natural, healthy ingredients).

Indian food is an internationally popular cuisine, yet, unfairly, it is often considered to be heavy, rich and indulgent. With more people than ever before turning to healthy home cooking there has never been a better time for a fresh and lighter take on Indian food - one that Mira is creating with her vibrant and healthy cooking style.

Inspired by her mother and grandmothers' cooking, Mira Manek's style of food is a modern interpretation of the Indian classics, creating utterly delicious and naturally healthy dishes. Whether you want to cook a Summer Saffron Chia Pot, an Indian Summer Salad, a Thali, a Masala and Nut Milk or a Mango Yoghurt Cheesecake, Saffron Soul combines the best of the core elements of Indian cooking with original health-promoting twists.

As well as offering the best and most naturally healthy Gujarati receipes, Mira also recreates some perennial favourites, replacing traditionally used grains and sugar with more nutritious ingredients such as millet, chia and jaggery, and cutting down on oils and fats, to make her dishes even healthier. Whether cooking a filling spicy curry, a soulful brunch, a nutritious light meal or a luscious dessert, Mira's dishes vibrantly burst with colour and a richness of flavour and spice, each fit for a feast.
