In Mastering the Art of Indian Cooking, Sanjeev Kapoor presents 500 accessible, easy recipes that any home cook can create. Kapoor is known for his no-fuss approach (in fact, he first made his mark in India by presenting food that was the essence of simplicity in a culture known for its complicated dishes). In this book, Kapoor takes the same approach, showing the reader how to build the simplest pantry, explaining why no special equipment is needed with these recipes, and including simple step-by-step instructions for each recipe. No ingredients here can't be found in American supermarkets. And yet, these are all authentic Indian dishes, updated for the modern kitchen. With recipes such as Classic Samosa, Tandoori Chicken, Tamarind-Date Chutney, and Mango Lassi; and categories including Beverages, Snacks & Starters, Vegetarian and Meat-Based Main Courses, Breads, Dals, and Desserts; truly anyone can master the art of Indian cooking.
