Crack The Code
Crack the Code: Cook Any Indian Meal With Confidence is a pioneering workbook styled cookbook that demystifies the seemingly complex processes involved in creating a well-balanced Indian dish. This book translates practical cooking advice from many generations of chefs from within Nandita’s family into a simple structured approach about how to craft a well seasoned Indian dish. It shares information about the fundamental building blocks of the Indian cuisine, provides sample recipes within its content to illustrate the methods, and eliminates any fear associated with cooking Indian food – the single biggest reservation in the true appreciation of a vibrant, flavorful and healthy cuisine. The two dozen simple practice recipes showcase the role of spices and ingredients and highlights the patterns of balancing and layering flavors. It includes quick notes on health benefits of using specific spices. Most notably, it shows the reader how to build essential taste profiles for an authentic dining experience. Whether it is a comfort meal or feast, a side dish, one-pot-meal or an easy decadent dessert, Crack the Code includes several quintessentially Indian and Indian inspired recipes. Recipes are chosen from Nandita’s own family kitchen, who keeps family health at the forefront of her cooking as shown in these recipes as well. This expanded edition was made possible, thanks to the support of a large and generous Kickstarter community. The edition is greatly enhanced for visual quality and ease of reading.
