Giveaway: Anjum’s New Indian Cookbook

Anjum's New Indian Cookbook Anjum’s New Indian Cookbook from host of Cooking Channel’s Indian Food Made Easy

A rising star of Indian cooking, Anjum Anand is the host of Indian Food Made Easy, which airs on the Cooking Channel – the Food Network’s new sister station that premiered in May 2010. ANJUM’S NEW INDIAN (Wiley Paperback; $24.95; October 25, 2010) includes 100 of the very best recipes fromIndian Food Made Easy and many more of Anand’s favorite regional Indian dishes. Based on the same simple principles that guide the show—light, modern Indian food that’s ready in a flash—she presents a collection of more than one hundred delicious dishes that are easy to make, quick to the table, and full of amazing flavors.

Anjum's New Indian Cookbook
While many Americans still perceive Indian food as tasting of a generic “curry,” Anand’s dishes may come as a revelation as to what proper Indian food should be. Dishes are often lighter than expected, with a lot of importance placed on freshness, aroma and color. Depending on the region, recipes can be spicy or light, a touch of sweet or slightly tart.

With all these differences, there is one common thread that runs through all Indian food—the use of spices. Spices are the hallmark of Indian food, and Anand hones in on this throughout.

Anjum's New Indian Cookbook ANJUM’S NEW INDIAN includes 100 recipes that capture the diversity of the subcontinent, divided into chapters covering: Light Meals and Snacks, Fish and Seafood, Chicken, Meat, Vegetables, Beans and Lentils, Rice and Bread, Raitas and Chutneys, and Desserts and Drinks. Plus, Anjum reveals handy tips for making the best use of the core Indian ingredients and explores the differences between India’s many and various regional cuisines. Anand offers recipes to suit every palate, any time of day. Just a few of the outstanding recipes include:

·         Bengali Squash with Chickpeas – a fantastic autumnal main course or a great side dish to meat or chicken dishes.
·         Chicken with Sour Cream and Red Pepper – creamy, tangy and slightly spicy, the red pepper adds another level of flavor.
·         Dried Pomegranate Chicken – an unusual dish that is simple yet packed with flavor.
·         Goan Prawn Cake – an old Goan dish that many have already forgotten about and locals are worried it might soon become obsolete.
·         Velvety Mango Mousse – the perfect ending to a spicy meal on a summer night.

Anjum's New Indian Cookbook
For simple, modern, and flavorful Indian food the whole family will love, ANJUM’S NEW INDIAN is the perfect book for home cooks looking to explore this exceptional cuisine.
