This updated edition of Anupy Singla’s bestselling debut cookbook includes 15 additional Indian recipes developed specifically for the slow cooker. Since its original publication in 2010, The Indian Slow Cooker has become a touchstone primer for everyone seeking an accessible entry point to cooking authentic, healthy Indian fare at home. Taking full advantage of the ease and convenience of the slow cooker, these recipes are simpler than their traditional counterparts and healthier than restaurant favorites, as they don’t require extra oil and fat. Singla’s “Indian Spices 101” chapter introduces readers to the mainstay spices of an Indian kitchen, as well as how to store, prepare, and combine them in different ways. Among these 65 recipes are all the classics—specialties like dal, palak paneer, and aloo gobi—and dishes like butter chicken, keema, and much more. The result is a terrific introduction to healthful, flavorful Indian food made using the simplicity and convenience of the slow cooker.
Cloves from the Moluccas, cinnamon from Sri Lanka, pepper from the Malabar coast, chillies from Peru ? for over 4,000 years spices have been used to bring recipes to life, as well as to enhance beauty and vitality, and treat and prevent disease. They have enriched our language and our folklore, excited our senses and inspired us to explore new culinary vistas. As we seek to live more healthily, the near-magical ability of spices to transform simple foods into memorable feasts can help us to rebalance our diet in fun and satisfying ways, and their powerful health-protecting and immune-stimulating properties enable us to deal more effectively with the stresses of modern living. The Healing Spices Cookbook will show you how to make the most of your spice rack and discover just how tasty healthy eating can be. Renowned nutritionist and naturopath Kirsten Hartvig offers around 100 delicious and easy recipes from around the world, from starters and preserves to confectionery and liqueurs. Also included in the book is a detailed directory of spices, featuring profiles of the healthiest, most popular kinds, including cinnamon, nigella, nutmeg and turmeric. This is a one-stop, easy-to-use, practical guide to the colourful world of spices, telling you all you need to know about buying, storing and using them so you can release their full potential for improving well-being and vitality.
