Anupy's books have all the staples of Indian cuisine, and she has done an amazing job at making it simple for non-Indians while keeping it authentic. Her books are really well organized, they have lots of great photos and tips, each recipe is really well explained and easy to follow, and they are all really healthy!!!
I am a Canadian married to an Indian and her books have changed my life - I now cook authentic Indian food regularly for my family, and my husband and his family couldn't be more impressed!! I have all three of her books now and we love all of her recipes.
Thank you Anupy for helping people like me and keep up the amazing work!!!
P.S. Check out her blog here to try out a few recipes and see for yourself how great it is: http://www.indianasapplepie.com/
Whether or not you are vegan or even vegetarian, (I am not, my granddaughter is) Anupy Singla, author of The Indian Slow Cooker: 50 Healthy, Easy, Authentic Recipes, does a superb job (one of the best I've seen) presenting both an introduction to Indian cuisine and a detailed list of spices and other ingredients commonly used in Indian cooking, often including photographs. 140 mostly easy recipes follow, ranging from basics like spice mixes, tamarind paste and directions for cooking various dried beans to soups, salads, and curries. Of special interest to vegans will be directions for making soy yogurt and a number of recipes that substitute baked tofu for the more traditional paneer cheese.
Grandma's $0.02 - Every cook needs a trick or two up her sleeve to accommodate special diets deliciously. Vegan Indian Cooking: 140 Simple and Healthy Vegan Recipes is a great place to start.
The Introduction takes the reader by the hand and prepares them for Anupy's approach to food and cooking. It is a refreshing read. The Getting Started section then provides valuable tips and information for both new and experienced cooks. This includes dealing with some common myths of Indian cooking, a primer on Indian spices and some important recommendations for the vegan Indian pantry.
Most importantly, every single dish I have made from this book has been absolutely fabulous! The recipes are for those who like to know they will have the chance to make everything that goes into a meal and knowing your effort will be rewarded. For example, the spice blends at the front of the book are a big part of why the meals in rest of the book are so easy to make so good. The instructions in each recipe are clear and precise without being pedantic. The little stories before each recipe will put you in the mood for the meal you are about to make and the few photographs are beautiful and actually look like the food you will produce.
These are not five-minute meals, but nor are they dishes you'll have to spend an afteroon preparing. With an hour or so, it is possible to make two or three dishes in parallel that will feed you for a few days. Best of all, throughout the book Anupy includes tips that busy people can use to make the preparation of this healthy food as easy as possible.
If your goal when cooking is to feed the people you love a healthy meal that makes them say, "Wow!" when they taste it, then this is the cookbook you're looking for.
