Indian food is one of the UK's favourite cuisines, so why don't we cook it more often at home? This book is the answer: Anjum shows how we can all create a delicious curry in just 20 minutes, and provides tips on stocking your cupboards with time-saving 'cheat' ingredients and a plethora of hints on how to make cooking Indian at home as easy as possible, while the 'Take One - ' feature shows you how to make three great meals from just one storecupboard ingredient. Whether you're feeding the family, puzzling over how to jazz up vegetable dishes, or entertaining friends, there's something here for every occasion. A plethora of spicy salads, using fresh vegetables and grains, will suit the modern lighter style of eating, while a chapter of fabulously fresh Indian 'tapas' makes entertaining a dream. After a busy day at work, throw together Anjum's lamb kebabs with a yoghurt-apricot relish in 10 minutes flat, or make tandoori salmon tacos that children will adore. And save room for pudding; a luscious ginger chai tiramisu will satisfy the most jaded palate!
Anjum Anand is on a mission to bring Indian food up to date. Very health-conscious herself, she is constantly working to bring down the fat content of Indian food, creating lighter, fresher dishes with all the rich, spicy flavours of the subcontinent. Anjum grew up in London and has presented two successful series of BBC TV's Indian Food Made Easy and written five bestselling books, all published by Quadrille. She has lived and studied in Geneva, Paris and Madrid and worked in restaurants in New York, Los Angeles and New Delhi, but her real love is home-cooked Indian food. Anjum travels regularly to India, but lives in London with her husband and two children. She now has her own internationally stocked range of Indian sauces, chutneys and pickles, The Spice Tailor.
