Indian Spice Meets American Speed in Vegan Richas Indian Kitchen -- Huffington Post.
One of the Best Vegan Cookbooks of 2015 - Vegetarian Times
There are no shortage of Indian cookbooks published, but this one bests them all. There is so much more to Indian food than Butter Chicken. Choose your own flavor explosion! The photos in the book are stunning. The recipes are weeknight friendly. -- T.O.F.U. Magazine.
Exotic and richly developed, Richas plant-based, spiced Indian recipes are neither too complicated nor made with ingredients too obscure to find, to make them unapproachable for the home cook. Complex flavors and textures, hallmarks of Indian cuisine, are the big draw to the 150 recipes in this book, but so, is the photography. -- Bluffton Today.
Once in a while, a food blogger comes along who goes the extra mile or 70. Richa combines a respect for tradition with a modern cooks pragmatism and in doing so, many recipes trade painstaking effort and hours in the kitchen for much more convenience without sacrificing the most important detail: fantastic food. -- Marla Rose, Vegan Street.
I love this cookbook because it displays an array of whole, plant-based foods that are truly nutritious, combining grains and legumes with a wide variety of vegetables, while offering ridiculously delicious dishes with aromas that will totally keep you hooked. Each recipe indicates whether it is, or could be made soy-free, gluten-free, and nut-free - and that includes the breads! -- The Vegan Woman.
From the Author
You may already love Indian food. Now imagine being able to cook your favorite recipes in your own kitchen. From delicious Dals to restaurant-style sauces, flat breads, savory breakfasts, snacks, and much more. How about some unique Indian desserts? Who would have thought you could one day enjoy dairy-free rasmalai, sandesh, or gulab jamun? Now you can. This book is a collection of 150 recipes inspired by Indian regional cuisines, culture, local foods, and proven cooking methods distributed over various chapters. Whether you want to add a bit of Indian flavor to your cooking, try some new spices, or add more protein using legumes and lentils to everyday meals, this book has got it covered.
Let us go on a journey where you can explore both familiar and new Indian flavors that are easy to make in your own kitchen. Everyday simple meals where nutrition-rich legumes, pulses, and vegetables are the stars in the first 6 chapters. Sauces and Curries with deep, complex flavors for special occasions or everyday in chapter 7. Fall in love with Indian food all over again. I remember eating fresh and wholesome foods as a way of life. Bulk-buying whole grains and having them milled at our local mill had a huge influence on the food I cook today. My recipes reflect my knowledge of Indian spices and traditions, as well as worldly influences. I strive hard to make my food accessible to everyone, vegan or not, and I strongly believe that vegan food can taste so good that everyone can enjoy it.
