From the publisher's website: "The clamour for Indian food is natural. What with its rich history dating eons back when the Rajahs and Maharajahs fired the imagination of the palace cooks to come up with a wide variety of exotic and delectable dishes that have left a lasting impact on the palates of connoisseurs of good food. Dishes like Murgh Shahjahani Chaat, Amaras ke Malai Aloo, Narangi Pulao and Gulab-e-Gulkand have endured the test of time and are still as popular as they were then. Perhaps the reason for the world wide popularity of Indian food is the fact that it has a lot of intermingling flavours, is healthy, is easy to prepare and above all can be digested effortlessly.
Indian food as it is today is the result of evolution. The recipes that have been passed through generations have in the process gathered a lot of influences of foreign tastes and textures. And we have brought you these delicacies within the covers of this beautifully produced book with exquisite photograph that aptly complement the exotic dishes. It is sure to find a pride of place on the shelves of any discerning collector.
The recipes have been judiciously chosen to give readers a taste of India that is authentic, yet ingeniously formatted to complement a modern meal from starters and soups through the main course to the desserts. There are a total of 91 ravishing recipes in this book."
