Praise for Anupy Singla and The Indian Slow Cooker :
If you love Indian food, have a look at Anupy Singla's The Indian Slow Cooker. Folded in with lush food photography are easy, healthful recipes with traditional flavors." -Lois White, Better Homes & Gardens
"My favorite new slow cooker book is The Indian Slow Cooker by Anupy Singla... .Because Indian dishes are rich in spices and robust flavors, they stand up well in slow cookers." -Genevieve Ko, Good Housekeeping , October 14, 2011
"In her friendly voice, Anupy Singla welcomes everyone into her kitchen, even busy and beginner cooks. With her comprehensive guide to ingredients and surprisingly simple and healthy recipes that perfume the house on a cold day, The Indian Slow Cooker is a great first book on Indian cooking. We love recommending it to our customers!" -Lara Hamilton, Owner of The Book Larder , Seattle, WA
'Singla's book goes against what many believe is required of Indian cuisine - infusing hot oil with a whole mess of spices as the base for dishes. Instead, she argues, throw everything into the Crock-Pot and let the aromatics do their thing... the book gives old- and new-school cooks alike ample reason to give Indian food a shot.' -Janet Rausa-Fuller, Chicago Sun-Times , October 20, 2011
"Next time you have a hankering for Indian food, don't think take-out. Think ahead. That's the message from Anupy Singla, author of The Indian Slow Cooker who is on a mission to correct misperceptions about Indian food... " -Michele Kayal, Associated Press , October 26, 2010
"[The Indian Slow Cooker] is slim in appearance, a mere 136 pages. Yet the author has packed its pages with 50-plus recipes, lots of guidance and enough enthusiasm for slow cookers and Indian food that fans of either or both will be prompted to try one of her recipes... ' -Judy Hevrdejs, Chicago Tribune , April 6, 2011
"Anupy is really on to something here. In 50 well-crafted and imaginative recipes, Anupy shows you how to use the modern slow cooker to get the beautiful, complex flavors of her ancient native cuisine. A book that will surprise you.' -Dorie Greenspan, author of Baking with Julia and Around My French Table , as well as contributing editor to Parade magazine, December 23, 2010
"Ms. Singla says her book is aimed at anyone who wants to eat more vegetarian food and she doesn't believe in calling Indian food 'spicy' or 'exotic' anymore." - Wall Street Journal, India Real Time Blog , August 24, 2010
"Anupy has a fantastic blog, Indian As Apple Pie, a beautiful cookbook, "The Indian Slow Cooker", and an innovative spice box product now being offered by Williams-Sonoma." -Nancy Loo, WGNtv.com , September 5, 2011
"For those who love Indian food - or who are interested in starting to explore it - Anupy shows how to prepare the classic dishes in healthful versions that use far less oil and saturated fat than traditional recipes... Anupy introduces the mainstay spices of an Indian kitchen, and how to store, prepare, and combine them in different preparations.' - WLS-ABC Channel 7 , March 26, 2011
"The talented and beautiful Anupy Singla, author of The Indian Slow Cooker, understands that many home cooks are intimidated by Indian spices and cooking. So she created spice packets, small bundles of 5 essential Indian spices, that will get anyone cooking Indian. Demystify something for people, and they will love you.' -Susan Russo, writer for FoodBlogga blog and contributor to NPR's Kitchen Window
"Singla's recipes, and writing in general, exudes common sense and practicality... Straightforward, healthy recipes for easy preparations of all your favourite Indian dishes combined with mouthwatering photographs make this a cookbook any lover of Indian food will appreciate." -Rebecca Baugniet, EAT Magazine
"Singla's first book, The Indian Slow Cooker, is packed with braises, both meat-and vegetable-based. Her newest book embodies how she often eats: a vegetable-based diet heavy on herbs and spices, and loaded with flavor." - Tasting Table Chicago , August 20, 2012
"Chicago-based cookbook author Anupy Singla has cultivated a devoted following by showing readers how to master Indian spices and make great-tasting Indian food at home. In her second offering, Vegan Indian Cooking, she tackles the perhaps more difficult endeavor of demystifying vegan cuisine." -Sarah Terez-Rosenblum, Chicago Sun Times , August 23, 2012

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.
