Additional Details

Description: Ruth Law, author of the celebrated Southeast Asia Cookbook, turns her culinary talents to the creation of innovative and healthy Indian recipes that are varied and full of life -- as well as being deliciously low in fat. Indian Light Cooking is the first cookbook to update the ancient cuisine of the vast Indian subcontinent to today's tastes and lifestyles without losing the character and liveliness of the original recipes. 

Indian Light Cooking cookbook bursts with the very best authentic Indian flavors. With its inspired mix of herbs, spices and other flavorful seasonings -- like mint, coriander, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, cumin, fennel and tangy citrus juices plus fresh vegetables and fruits, grains and legumes, meat, poultry and seafood -- Indian Light Cooking transforms traditional dishes into light and lively new ones. The result is an outstanding collection that will tantalize the palate, thrill the adventuresome cook, and satisfy the armchair traveler. 

Among the more than two hundred recipes are dishes from all regions of India. Each recipe includes a nutritional analysis and is introduced with an informative and entertaining narration drawing on Ruth Law's experiences during her travels through India in search of new dishes. Indian Light Cooking is based on scores of Ms. Law's visits to Indian homes, restaurants and hotel kitchens, where the author cooked with top chefs and everyday cooks alike, interviewed street vendors, and visited street markets.
