Madhur Jaffrey's latest treasure is a guided tour through six regions of her native India, each home to its own traditional dishes. With authentic recipes and full-color photographs, this is an irresistible follow-up to Madhur Jaffrey's A Taste of the Far East, the 1994 winner of the James Beard Award for Best Cookbook of the Year.
In Madhur Jaffrey's Flavors of India, we travel with Madhur as she roasts cashews over a wood fire to make chutney with curry leaves, a specialty of Goa; as she cooks freshly caught fish with coconut milk, cardamom, and nutmeg while floating up a river in Kerala; as she views the magical mists on the plains of Gujerat and describes the unique way that noodles are prepared there; and as she experiences the culture, landscape, and food of these regions, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, and the Punjab.
Her recipes include the delectable Country Chicken Curry with a ginger garlic paste from Kerala; Spicy Potatoes with Tomatoes and Cumin from Gujerat; Sweet and Sour Prawns with Coconut, Green Chilies and Tamarind from Goa; Red Lentils with Turmeric and Mustard from Bengal; Sweet Beetroot Chutney from Tamil Nadu; and Eggplant Pate and Flaky Pan-Fried Bread, two specialties from the Punjab. Jaffrey also provides a list of ingredients essential to Indian cooking and advice on equipment and techniques.
