Vegetarian India: A Journey Through the Best of Indian Home Cooking by Madhur Jaffrey

Into the Wild

Read Vegetarian India: A Journey Through the Best of Indian Home Cooking Online Free - No one knows Indian food like Madhur Jaffrey. For more than forty years, the “godmother of Indian cooking” (The Independent on Sunday) has introduced Western home cooks to the vibrant cuisines of her homeland. Now, in Vegetarian India: A Journey Through the Best of Indian Home Cooking, the seven-time James Beard Award–winning author shares the delectable, healthful, vegetable- and grain-based foods enjoyed around the Indian subcontinent.

Vegetarian cooking is a way of life for more than 300 million Indians. Jaffrey travels from north to south, and from the Arabian Sea to the Bay of Bengal, collecting recipes for the very tastiest dishes along the way. She visits the homes and businesses of shopkeepers, writers, designers, farmers, doctors, weavers, and more, gathering their stories and uncovering the secrets of their most delicious family specialties. From a sweet, sour, hot, salty Kodava Mushroom Curry with Coconut originating in the forested regions of South Karnataka to simple, crisp Okra Fries dusted with chili powder, turmeric, and chickpea flour; and from Stir-Fried Spinach, Andhra Style (with ginger, coriander, and cumin) to the mung bean pancakes she snacks on at a roadside stand, here Jaffrey brings together the very best of vegetable-centric Indian cuisine and explains how home cooks can easily replicate these dishes—and many more for beans, grains, and breads—in their own kitchens.

With more than two hundred recipes, beautifully illustrated throughout, and including personal photographs from Jaffrey’s own travels, Vegetarian India is a kitchen essential for vegetable enthusiasts and home cooks everywhere.

This is a delight to read, and a logistical pain in the ass to cook from, unless you live somewhere with access to really good Indian grocers. Asfoetida, where do you even BUY that? Still, I'm getting there. My cupboard is now home to four different kinds of daal. I've even put my coffee grinder t...

I came across this cookbook in my most recent issue of Martha Stewart Living which had some recipes from the cookbook and I was intrigued. We enjoy Indian food and I thought that some of the side vegetable dishes and flavored rices looked interesting. I did find some side dishes and rices that I...

I'm a bit tossed up whether this book should be a purchase. When compared to her book from 35 years ago, Madhur Jaffrey's World-of-the-East Vegetarian Cooking, it now has pretty pictures and more on exotic ingredients that you can now get in the US. This book is focused on India as a whole, which...

This is now the fourth cookbook I own by this author and I think I will be using it as often as I do the first three. Jaffrey has collected recipes from home cooks around India, often by looking over their shoulder as they made a dish. As always, her recipes are carefully written and tested: they...

This a little overwhelming. It's huge, there's tons of stuff in it, and a lot of things aren't pictured, so it's hard to get an idea of what they actually are. But a number of the recipes sound really good. I think this is just a little more intense than I'm looking for. Also, at some po...

i've enjoyed flipping through this book. the majority of recipes seem simple and approachable, which is a nice change from many indian cookbooks that seem to overwhelm you with ingredients (though all of the ingredients really do add a special something, not a criticism, it's just nice not to get...

A wonderful addition to my cookbook library both from an Indian and vegetarian perspective. I'm learning about Dals, loving okra and enjoying healthy, creative snacking. In cookbook reviews, I often see concerns about the availability of ingredients but I have found that once you have stocked your...

This is probably my favorite cookbook now, and absolutely the best Indian cookbook I have ever used. I've made so many of these recipes, and everything has turned out really well. I don't consider myself anything more than an average cook to a house of 4, so I was pleasantly surprised how often th...

Solid recipes, even with tinkering (which was necessary. Bright flavours throughout - the bhagara baigan only gets better as it matures. The book itself is gorgeous. Worth it for the vegetarian and the Indian food love. She even has chili paneer...I also would have never thought that toasted sesa...
