Easter 2012. I had planned to get an ham for supper on Sunday. We had already invited friends over for supper. But my husband challenged me to make something different. So Indian Food it was decided based on two recipes from the flavors of Asia as well as two recipes from Around the World CookBook. I won't expand on the recipes I took from Around the Word Cookbook but I can tell you that it was the tandoori chicken and the raita sauce!

From the book the flavors of Asia, I had selected two recipes: Naan bread and Masala Shrimps.

Apparently bread is an integral part of Indian cuisine. So to make our meal complete, I thought it would be fun to make Naan bread. The process of making this bread is very easy but take a long time.

The second recipe I made for our Easter meal was the Masala Shrimps.

The final meal including the tandoori chicken, the raita sauce (both taken from the Around the World CookBook. ) and the pieces of avocado.

Though I realized that having more vegetable would have been preferable, we had a great time with our friends and the meal was delicious. I'm happy it turned out perfect and than everyone went for seconds!

Afterwards, we did a little Easter egg hunt with the kids including our friends' son who did it for the first time as he is not even two years old yet.

The recipe book contains recipes from China, India, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. You will find everything to plan a meal with your family and friends.

A tricky diversion July 1 2009
By Mogul51 - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The book has a nice blend of information and recipes but the instructions aren't as clear as they might be. I wish the glossary and index were a little more complete as well. But the final dishes are quite good.

The Flavors of Asia is a gorgeous, hardcover cookbook collecting recipies from forty of the best chefs in India, Asia, and America. Each of the 125 recipes is presented with numbered, step-by-step instructions, a beautiful full-page photograph of the dish, and insightful comments on the origin and use of the recipe. Recipes include "Baechoo Kimchi", "Spicy Lemongrass Tofu", "Singapore Chili Crab", "Banana Blossom Salad with Chicken", and more.
