No one knows Indian food like Madhur Jaffrey. For more than forty years, the “godmother of Indian cooking” (The Independent on Sunday) has introduced Western home cooks to the vibrant cuisines of her homeland. Now, in Vegetarian India: A Journey Through the Best of Indian Home Cooking, the seven-time James Beard Award–winning author shares the delectable, healthful, vegetable- and grain-based foods enjoyed around the Indian subcontinent. Vegetarian cooking is a way of life for more than 300 million Indians. Jaffrey travels from north to south, and from the Arabian Sea to the Bay of Bengal, collecting recipes for the very tastiest dishes along the way. She visits the homes and businesses of shopkeepers, writers, designers, farmers, doctors, weavers, and more, gathering their stories and uncovering the secrets of their most delicious family specialties. From a sweet, sour, hot, salty Kodava Mushroom Curry with Coconut originating in the forested regions of South Karnataka to simple, crisp Okra Fries dusted with chili powder, turmeric, and chickpea flour; and from Stir-Fried Spinach, Andhra Style (with ginger, coriander, and cumin) to the mung bean pancakes she snacks on at a roadside stand, here Jaffrey brings together the very best of vegetable-centric Indian cuisine and explains how home cooks can easily replicate these dishes—and many more for beans, grains, and breads—in their own kitchens. With more than two hundred recipes, beautifully illustrated throughout, and including personal photographs from Jaffrey’s own travels, Vegetarian India is a kitchen essential for vegetable enthusiasts and home cooks everywhere.

She presents her recipes in clear, accessible language that allows both the novice and the accomplished cook to achieve authentic flavors again and again. -Michele Anna Jordan, from the Foreword to Cooking Along the Ganges Reviews for the Ganges Restaurant: …Hindu vegetarians ascribe important healing properties to certain foods… Too complex for me, I ignored therapeutics at the Ganges and concentrated on the pure pleasure of eating. Malvi Doshi, it turned out, is a genius. -Sharon Silva, San Francisco Focus Magazine I’d been enjoying Indian food for more than 30 years, but in this unheralded restaurant on a dark, cold street I tasted dishes I’d only read about. -Jim Wood, on the Ganges Restaurant, San Francisco Examiner Image Magazine.
