American Curry by Gita Iyer is an easy-to-follow cookbook with recipes from an Indian kitchen in America.
Granite Bay, Calif. (PRWEB) January 11, 2008 --
American Curry, a new book written by India native and freelance journalist Gita Iyer, is a fusion of Indian and American cuisine.
Sure to be handed down through the generations, the book is a collection of 35 vegetarian recipes that have evolved in over two decades of experimenting with healthier and easier versions of standard Indian cuisine. With each dish beautifully photographed, the book consists of seven sections ranging from sauces and vegetable sides to desserts and snacks.
When Iyer first started to cook in America, she found many of the vegetables she was accustomed to using in India were unavailable in the local grocery stores. Because of difficulties in trying to find her desired ingredients in America, Iyer learned to substitute similar vegetables in traditional Indian recipes and learned to "curry up" favorite American specialties with an Indian flair.
Iyer's cookbook came about from multiple requests for recipes and samples from her Indian/American hybrid kitchen. While society emphasizes healthy cooking and a willingness to experiment with different spices and ingredients, American Curry is a sure way to escape from mundane cooking.
For anyone who enjoys hearty vegetarian food with an Indian flavor, American Curry is certain to be passed around among friends and family.
