The best Indian food is cooked (and eaten) at home. Real Indian food is fresh, simple and packed with flavour, and in this book Meera Sodha introduces Britain to the food she grew up eating here every day. Unlike the stuff you get at your local curry house, her food is fresh, vibrant and surprisingly quick and easy to make. In this collection, Meera serves up a feast of over 130 delicious recipes collected from three generations of her family- there's everything from hot chappatis to street food (chilli paneer and beetroot and feta samosas), fragrant curries (spinach and salmon or perfect cinnamon lamb curry), to colourful side dishes (pomegranate and mint raita, kachumbar salad), and mouth-watering puddings (mango, lime and passion fruit jelly and pistachio and saffron kulfi). Made in India will change the way you cook, eat, and think about Indian food for ever. Made In India Cooked in Britain- Recipes from an Indian Family Kitchen is the essential book for anyone who loves Indian food and wants to know how to make it easily at home. When not travelling round India, collecting recipes, Meera Sodha chefs, writes and lives in London. This is her first cookbook. 'This book is full of real charm, personality, love and garlic. Bring on the 100 clove curry! Not to mention fire-smoked aubergines, chicken livers in cumin butter masala and beetroot and feta samosas. There' so much to be inspired by.' Yotam Ottolenghi 'This book cries out to be cooked from and you'll have a blast every time you do.' Guardian Cook! 'This delightful and unpretentious volume offers a glimpse of Indian home cookery not often seen in print, because it is usually passed down orally through families.' Bee Wilson, The Sunday Times 'Sodha dances along the line, evoking the exotic but delivering extremely achievable recipes. A charming book.' Tim Hayward, Financial Times 'This unindenting cookbook brings home the diversity of Indian Food with mouthwatering suggestions.' The Daily Express 'There are no frighteningly long ingredient lists or recherché spices - just simple recipes that really work. It's become my go-to Indian cookery book.' Tony Turnbull, The Times
