Indian food from home, cooked with heart
This book is a collection of recipes from my childhood, my Indian family kitchen. A celebration of where I come from, of home-cooking, and the inextricable link between food and love. It is a chance for me to honour my ammu, and to share with you the recipes that made me, that root me to home.
This book is a joyful celebration of memories of food, and its power to heal, restore and comfort.
I include my ammu's comfort food, from my childhood, the recipes she with which she taught me to cook, celebratory food for special occasions, slow-cooked recipes passed through the generation of my family that have long rich histories and methodical recipes to match and, finally, my recipes, now that I am ammu - all quick and easy, mixing the ingredients I have at hand in London with my favourite spices.
