Drumroll, with the deep tone of a dhol (Indian-style barrel drum) thrown in!
And..it’s HERE! Our first eBook, and we’re thrilled to share it with you.
Mango Masala: 60 Indian Recipes From Your Local Supermarket.
So why did we write yet another Indian cookbook, and how will it benefit you? We didn’t really have a plan to begin with, no months of planning or strategizing leading up to this project. Rather, the book found us.
Let us explain: we’ve lived outside India for years and on many an occasion, in small towns with no Indian grocer in sight for miles. Consequently, we’ve had to run our kitchens on a limited supply of out-and-out Indian ingredients. But that didn’t deter us – we simply reached out into the deep pockets of our local Supermarket, and made the best of what we had access to. That is what this book is all about, and it’s virtually an extension of us and our kitchens.
Our one big goal is to help you cook well-balanced, nutritious Indian-style meals to share with your family just the way we do. Many of our recipes are vegan or vegetarian, while some are even gluten-free or dairy-free, and can be adapted to suit your preferences. And we won’t send you on a trip to the dusty bylanes of India to source the spices or condiments used in them. Instead, we’ll show you how to cook Indian food right out of your fittingly stocked Western pantry, and what a cinch it really is, right from breakfast to snacks, and full-fledged lunches to dinner spreads.
We hope you pick up a copy, dig right in, try out some of our recipes and enjoy them as much as we did, putting them together for you. And, as always, we love to hear your reviews and comments, so please keep them coming!
