Description: India is such a vast country that the cooking style and the use of different ingredients varies enormously throughout the regions, with local produce playing a large part in the formation of regional cuisines and specialties. 

During the diverse history of India a great variety of ingredients and cooking techniques have been developed, whilst others have been introduced by outsiders. Religious groups have also had a large impact on Indian food and cooking, with their beliefs shaping their eating habits. 

Indian Food & Folklore contains over 100 recipes for authentic Indian dishes.The book is comprised of seven chapters, each with a varied selection of dishes.Try Spicy Scrambled Eggs, the deliciously creamy LambTikka Masala or the hot and spicy Prawn Vindaloo. Combine a main dish with the traditional southern Indian dish Cauliflower Pachadi or some Coconut Rice. Cool the palette with one of the fresh tasting desserts such as the delicately flavoured Indian Rice Pudding or Mango Ice Cream. 

The vivid photography brings the colourful cuisine of India to life, whilst the black and white photographs provide an insight into the culture and traditions of India.
