Fresh India: 130 Quick, Easy and Delicious Vegetarian Recipes for Every Day
About this deal
Others have come from my experiments in the kitchen, taking classic Indian techniques and flavors and imagining something new. After all, I’m sure I’m not the only one who has wondered what an Indian salad could look and taste like. Put a tablespoon of oil into a large lidded frying pan over a medium heat and, when hot, add the cubes of paneer. Fry for a couple of minutes until golden on all sides, turning regularly, then remove to a plate.
Fresh India by Meera Sodha | Goodreads
Sodha is a former vegetarian, and more than half the 60-million population who live in Gujarat eat a meat-free diet. “As a result, this incredible cuisine evolved that was very innovative.” Agricultural Lincolnshire was also an inspiration: “It’s like a giant larder.”Meanwhile, put 2 tablespoons of oil into a large lidded frying pan over a medium heat and, when hot, add the mustard seeds. When they pop, add the chillies and onion. Cook for 12 minutes, until the onion is soft and golden, then add the garlic. Cook for another couple of minutes, then add the beans and stir to mix together. Add the tomatoes and cook for a few more minutes until soft and jammy around the edges. Add the crushed coriander and cumin, followed by the potatoes. Cook for 10 minutes, turning every now and then until crispy. Add a couple of tablespoons of water, cover with the lid and cook for a further 5 minutes, until the potatoes are tender and no longer resist the point of a knife. This is a beautiful book to look through! I love looking at great food, this has lots of very attractive pictures of vegetables and bright images of Indian art and illustrations. If you enjoy looking through cookery books for fun this is highly recommended.

I’ve written three best-selling cookbooks, and, since 2017 I’ve written a weekly column for The Guardian called The New Vegan.I love this book. I bought it because I realised that my other book with Indian recipes was full of meat/fish dishes, which I don't eat (anymore). All vegetable-based, all flavour-full, these recipes will be loved by vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.
