When not traveling around India, collecting recipes, MEERA SODHA chefs, writes, and lives in London. Made in India is her first cookbook.
"The recipes are unpretentious and were immediately promoted by my family of critics into must-makes for the monthly dinner rotation, new staples for a season of chill and damp." --Sam Sifton, The New York Times "This book is full of real charm, personality, love, and garlic. Bring on the 100 clove curry! Not to mention fire-smoked eggplant, chicken livers in cumin butter masala, and beet and feta samosas. There's so much to be inspired by." --Yotam Ottolenghi "I want to cook everything in this book." --Nigella Lawson "This cookbook is the story of Sodha, her family and their journey over three generations from India to Africa to England. 'An Indian kitchen can be anywhere in the world, ' the London-based home cook and 'occasional' chef writes in her introduction. Sodha shows you how to do it with enticing recipes, colorful photographs, travel memories and a healthy dose of humor. Particularly useful are the detailed glossary of ingredients and spices, proposed menus and ideas for leftovers." --Bill Daley, Chicago Tribune
