Made in India

130 Simple, Fresh and Flavourful Recipes from One Indian Family

A fresh and accessible guide to making delicious authentic home-cooked Indian food

The best Indian food is cooked (and eaten) at home.

Real Indian food is fresh, simple and packed with flavour. In this book, Meera Sodha introduces Britain to the food she grew up eating here every day. Unlike the stuff you get at your local curry house, her food is fresh, vibrant and surprisingly quick and easy to make.

In this collection, Meera serves up a feast of over 130 delicious recipes collected from three generations of her family: there's everything from hot chappatis to street food, fragrant curries, to colourful side dishes, and mouth-watering puddings. Made in India will change the way you cook, eat, and think about Indian food, forever.

Sodha dances along the line, evoking the exotic but delivering extremely achievable recipes. A charming book.

There are no frighteningly long ingredient lists or recherché spices - just simple recipes that really work. It's become my go-to Indian cookery book.

This book is full of real charm, personality, love and garlic. Bring on the 100 clove curry! Not to mention fire-smoked aubergines, chicken livers in cumin butter masala and beetroot and feta samosas. There's so much to be inspired by
