No Indian meal is complete without dal. It may be the dal tadka so popular in the north or the fiery sambhar of the south. It may be served as main course or side relish, soup or salad or even sweet, but breakfast, lunch, teatime or dinner, dal in some form or the other is almost an imperative. Which is why this book is a must-have for every cook and lover of good food. In it are recipes that will help you serve up dals of every sort: everyday ones to accompany your usual rice and roti diet, unusual one-dish meals made of a sumptuous mix of dal and vegetables, rich meat and lentil combinations to spice up your non-vegetarian table and lots of snacks and sweets made from different kinds of dal to round off a meal or just add zest to your child s lunch or picnic box.Recipes include Mixed sprout salad with mango and honey Moong aur chana dal samosé (Lentil-filled pastries) Chana dal aur tamatar ki bhel (Tangy Bengal gram with tomatoes) Ankurit moong kadhi (Sprouted green beans with curd curry) Rasedar lobia tari (Cowpea curry) Dal kofte palak ke saath (Mixed lentil kofta with spinach) Dal ande aur palak ki tikki (Mixed lentils, egg and spinach cutlets) Moong dal poori (Poori with green beafilling) Bhune chane ke ladoo (Roasted Bengal gram sweet) Chana aur tuvar dal puranpoli (Bengal gram and pigeon pea cake)

What ever happened to good old-fashioned home cookin’? Canned foods, boxed mixes and frozen dinners have created a new convenience that many of us have come to depend on. All of our most cherished foods come ready-made, like ice cream, mayonnaise and bread, and we hardly ever realize that such things can be made at home. In recent years, people have become more conscious of health and fitness, partly to cure some of the problems that such food has produced, and partly because of the culture. It’s often a “quick fix” for the problems associated with our sedentary lifestyles in the work place and at home. In theory, such lifestyles are great, but, in practice, they become much more difficult to maintain. Most health issues start in the kitchen and in the supermarket. If people cooked more often for themselves, and cooked leaner, the culture of food would have a new meaning. This new fitness-focused lifestyle and our new consciousness about the foods we eat has induced some changes in the cultural status, and the meaning, of traditional cuisine; it’s all taking place outside the range of vision of nutritionists, ethnographers and columnists writing on healthy eating. Few actually seem aware that the traditional concerns about about the ethnography of food—the cooked and the raw, the pure and the polluted, the commensurable and its absence, the sanctified and the profane—have merged now with a new, more fluid politics of food. This new self-awareness has introduced a new sub-culture of food within certain culinary traditions—the sub-culture of healthy eating, while maintaining cultural traditions. In our Lean Series of cookbooks, we sought to make some of the most culturally-iconic dishes healthy again.

Frank Schätzing LIMIT als eBook – das Digitalbuch mit dem gewissen Extra! Mai 2025: Die Energieversorgung der Erde scheint gesichert, seit die USA auf dem Mond das Element Helium-3 fördern. Bahnbrechende Technologien des Konzerngiganten Orley Enterprises haben die Raumfahrt revolutioniert, in einem erbitterten Kopf-an-Kopf-Rennen versuchen Amerikaner und Chinesen, auf dem Trabanten ihre Claims abzustecken. Während der exzentrische Konzernchef Julian Orley mit einer Schar prominenter Gäste zu einer Vergnügungstour ins All aufbricht, soll Detektiv Owen Jericho, den eine unglückliche Liebe nach Shanghai verschlagen hat, die untergetauchte Dissidentin Yoyo ausfindig machen. Was nach Routine klingt, ist tatsächlich der Auftakt zu einer alptraumhaften Jagd von China über Äquatorialguinea und Berlin bis nach London und Venedig. Denn auch andere interessieren sich für Yoyo, die offenbar im Besitz streng gehüteter Geheimnisse und ihres Lebens nicht mehr sicher ist. Jericho muss sich mit der bildschönen, aber ziemlich anstrengenden Chinesin zusammentun, um den phantomgleichen Gegnern auf die Spur zu kommen. In einer Zeit, in der multinationale Konzerne der Politik zunehmend das Zepter aus der Hand nehmen, führen beide einen verzweifelten Kampf ums Überleben, gehetzt von einer Übermacht hochgerüsteter Killer. Die Suche nach den Drahtziehern führt mitten hinein in die Wirren afrikanischer Söldnerkriege, Machtkämpfe um Öl und alternative Energien, Vorherrschaftsträume im Weltraum – und zum Mond, auf dem sich Orleys Reisegruppe unvermittelt einer tödlichen Bedrohung gegenüber sieht. Das LIMIT Digitalbuch erscheint mit Zusatzmaterial: Die gegenüber dem gedruckten Buch erweiterte Digitalbuchversion erscheint als sogenanntes Enhanced eBook und enthält Zeichnungen sowie Bonus-Texte von Frank Schätzing. Darunter eine Erläuterung der zentralen Handlungsschauplätze auf Erde und Mond, eine Charakterisierung der wichtigsten Romanfiguren, Frank Schätzings persönliche Lektüretipps sowie zehn Zeichnungen aus der Hand des Autors, die während der Arbeit am Roman entstanden sind. Das LIMIT eBook für das iPhone bzw. für iPodTouch zeigt zudem einen Videoclip mit Ausschnitten der LIMIT live-Bühnenshow.
In Appetites stellt Anthony Bourdain seine Lieblingsgerichte vor, die ihm schon während seiner Kindheit, später in seiner Karriere als Koch und natürlich auf seinen Reisen ans Herz gewachsen sind. Doch Appetites ist weit mehr als ein Kochbuch. Es ist ein Kunstwerk. Ein Manifest. Eine Reflexion über das (richtige) Leben und ein Schlachtplan für die Küche, der dabei hilft, Gäste mit atemberaubender Effizienz in Schrecken zu versetzen. Die Fotos sind rebellisch, frech, ungeschönt, unkonventionell. Sie zeigen, wie es in einer Küche wirklich zugeht, und zelebrieren Bourdains Bad-Boy-Image auf schaurig-schöne Weise. Die Gerichte schmecken dennoch fantastisch und sollten – in Bourdains Augen – wirklich von jedem gekocht werden können.
