Publisher Comments:

The authors of the top-selling Art of South Indian Cooking are back with a new book — featuring both new and revised recipes with a healthy approach to traditional Indian cooking

After numerous cooking demonstrations and TV appearances, along with letters and comments from readers, the authors have put together a brand new collection of healthy recipes. With an emphasis on the famed Chettinad cooking tradition of southern India, these 150 mostly vegetarian recipes will allow home cooks to create fabulous exotic fare like potato-filled dosas with coconut chutney, Pearl Onion and Tomato Sambhar, Mushroom and Pepper Poriyal, and Eggplant Masala Curry with ease. These dishes are exceptionally delicious and nutritious, with a focus on wholesome vegetables and legumes flavored with delicate spices. Each of these low-fat, low-calorie recipes features complete nutritional analysis for readers with dietary concerns.

Also included are sample menus of complementary dishes, and innovative suggestions for integrating south Indian dishes into traditional Western meals. A section on the varieties and methods of preparation for dals (a lentil dish that is a staple of the cuisine), a multilingual glossary of spices and ingredients, and 8 pages of color photographs make this book a clear and concise introduction to the healthy, delicious cooking of south India.

I don't usually buy cookbooks, but this one has made its way into my library. I already have most of the ingredients in my cupboard to make these recipes, and along with veggies from my garden have been cooking up meal after delicious meal from this book. There are even recipes featuring brussels sprouts! The majority of recipes are vegetarian, but the handful of meat recipes are equally intriguing. The other night I prepared halibut in tamarind sauce that was to die for. If you enjoy adventurous tastes, but appreciate recipes simple enough for day-to-day cooking, you'll want to check out this book.
