Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Matcha tapioca pudding (Sabudhana ni kheer)

    • EmilyR on September 07, 2019

      This reminded me more of Japan than India, but it’s an interesting mix. My matcha was far more green than the book photo and it could probably be cut back a bit despite using the weight measurements. I would like to recreate this with some chai tea or cardamom.

Publishers Text

Former MasterChef Season 6 contestant Hetal Vasavada, nostalgic for the desserts she grew up with, shares a versatile selection of classic Indian recipes and creative interpretations. These desserts are more than one-note sweet treats; they’re complex creations, relying on a wide variety of spices, nuts and fruits for incredible flavor. Readers will learn to work with superb combinations like pistachio and rose, chocolate and ginger, fennel and almond, citrus and sesame and more. Hetal makes it easy to create unbelievable treats with simple instructions and easy-to-find ingredients.

Readers new to Indian sweets will be introduced to traditional rice puddings, lassis and biscuits. Those already familiar with the go-to treats will be delighted to discover Hetal’s riffs on the classics. She infuses European and American favorites with Indian flavors, as in Mango Lassi French Macaroons and Pomegranate Curd Brownies. She also creates fun twists on Indian desserts, such as Thandai Cake Rusks, which combine a popular Indian tea cookie with the amazing flavor of thandai, a spiced beverage popular during festival season.
