Additional Details

Description: For many, the idea of Indian food is one of high-fat, high-calorie dishes cooked in saturated fat and swimming with oil. But the truth is, Indian food can be light and healthy, with fresh flavors, fabulous colors and delicious textures. This book offers a modern approach to traditional Indian cooking, creating classic flavors and dishes using nutritious, low-fat ingredients and making use of healthy cooking techniques to achieve perfect, guilt-free, and authentic results. 

There's a wide choice of both hot and mild dishes, some with light, fresh flavors, others with the mouthwatering, comforting texture of a slow-simmered dhal. The recipes have been designed with the modern cook in mind -- making use of healthy ingredients that are fresh, delicious, and bursting with flavor. 

A well-stocked pantry of basic ingredients and spices is essential. Most of these can be bought in large supermarkets, but I would urge you to visit an Indian or Asian market and stock up with a range of ingredients. Don't let yourself be intimidated by ingredients that may be new to you. Just make sure that you have everything laid out and on hand before you start to cook, and the rest will be easy. 

At the end of the day, the main ingredient to have on hand is the love, enjoyment and passion for food, cooking, and eating. Don't be afraid to experiment so that you can understand the cooking techniques you employ, the ingredients you use, and the flavors and textures you create. As long as you approach your time in the kitchen in a relaxed, calm, and confident manner, following your own instincts and trusting your own palette, you can be confident of forging ahead to a delicious, healthy, and flavorful way of life to share with family and friends.
