How often do you read recipe books and become disheartened by a never-ending list of ingredients? This is often especially true of Indian cookbooks, and is enough to prompt anyone to reach for the takeaway menu - but don't dial! Award-winning author Monisha Bharadwaj has come to the rescue with her stunning new recipe book, Indian in 6. Indian food is one of the best-loved cuisines in the world. It is also extremely versatile - whether you want to cook a quick weeknight meal or a banquet for your friends ? there is a multitude of regional recipes, fresh ingredients and aromatic herb and spice combinations to choose from. Each of Monisha's exciting, authentic and elegant Indian dishes uses just 6 ingredients or less, with the only store cupboard ingredients required being vegetable oil, salt and ginger-garlic paste. She uses simple and healthy cooking methods to bring the rich flavours of the sub-continent to your table, in a matter of minutes, and Gus Filgate's sumptuous photographs bring the dishes to vibrant life. The delicious recipes include: Spinach and Coconut Soup; Roasted Aubergine in Yoghurt; Creamy Silver Lamb Curry; Chicken and Coconut Stir-fry; Wild Mango and Mustard Salad; South Indian Crab; Goan Pork Salad ; Garlicky Chicken with Mango Butter; Banana Leaf Squid; Prawns with Lime and many more that you won't find at your local takeaway!
