Dal is to India what pasta is to Italy. Cheap to produce, highly nutritional, suitable for long storage and capable of being cooked in a basic pot on an open fire, dal has been providing nourishment to millions of Indians for millennia. It truly is a pan-Indian dish consumed by rich and poor alike. It is high protein and has practically no sugar - in fact it is known as 'poor man's meat' in India - hence doctors now include this as an essential item in a diet for diabetics. Dal is a genuinely impressive dish of infinite variety - there are at least 50 recipes for this humble food. There are multiple ways of cooking it, wide-ranging seasonings are used and there are diverse supplements to serve with it. Over the centuries Indian cooks became innovative and with locally available ingredients they dished out dal to satisfy a regional palate. In the process they also invented new dishes using dal lentils such as kedgeree (khichari - a risotto made with lentil), dosas (pancakes mixed with lentil flower), vadas (lentil cakes), dhokla (baked lentil cakes), papadam (dried lentil snack) and pakoras (fritters dipped in lentil batter).

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.

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)

Since winning everyone over on Ramsay's Best Restaurant, Prashad has grown in size and reputation, and so too has the Patel family. In this, their second book, Kaushy returns the focus to the heart of Indian home cooking. Traditional recipes have been simplified using readily available ingredients. These are the quick dishes that can be prepared in the evenings when you're tired after work, meals to leave bubbling away while you relax at the weekend and feasts for special occasions - as well as everything you need to serve alongside: the breads, the rice and the chutneys. You'll also find many recipes drawing influence from British, Chinese and Italian cuisines - a perfect combining of cultures in the kitchen. And, because Gujaratis are well known for their sweet teeth, there are plenty of snacks and treats too. Life is all about balance after all. Times have changed and what we eat should suit our lifestyle, but whether you have 20 minutes or two hours, cooking should be enjoyed, bringing both you and those you are cooking for pleasure. From bhajis to feast biryanis to beans on toast, Gujarati-style, here are more than 100 recipes to bring warmth, taste and texture into your home, all made with the Patel's characteristic love and passion for vegetarian food.

A perfect and irresistible idea: A cookbook filled with delicious, healthful recipes created for everyone on a tight budget. While studying food policy as a master’s candidate at NYU, Leanne Brown asked a simple yet critical question: How well can a person eat on the $4 a day given by SNAP, the U.S. government’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program informally known as food stamps? The answer is surprisingly well: Broiled Tilapia with Lime, Spicy Pulled Pork, Green Chile and Cheddar Quesadillas, Vegetable Jambalaya, Beet and Chickpea Salad—even desserts like Coconut Chocolate Cookies and Peach Coffee Cake. In addition to creating nutritious recipes that maximize every ingredient and use economical cooking methods, Ms. Brown gives tips on shopping; on creating pantry basics; on mastering certain staples—pizza dough, flour tortillas—and saucy extras that make everything taste better, like spice oil and tzatziki; and how to make fundamentally smart, healthful food choices. The idea for Good and Cheap is already proving itself. The author launched a Kickstarter campaign to self-publish and fund the buy one/give one model. Hundreds of thousands of viewers watched her video and donated $145,000, and national media are paying attention. Even high-profile chefs and food writers have taken note—like Mark Bittman, who retweeted the link to the campaign; Francis Lam, who called it “Terrific!”; and Michael Pollan, who cited it as a “cool kickstarter.” In the same way that TOMS turned inexpensive, stylish shoes into a larger do-good movement, Good and Cheap is poised to become a cookbook that every food lover with a conscience will embrace.

#1 New York Times Bestseller! Thug Kitchen started their wildly popular website to inspire people to eat some goddamn vegetables and adopt a healthier lifestyle. Beloved by Gwyneth Paltrow ("This might be my favorite thing ever") and named Saveur's Best New Food blog of 2013, Thug Kitchen wants to show everyone how to take charge of their plates and cook up some real f*cking food. Yeah, plenty of blogs and cookbooks preach about how to eat more kale, why ginger fights inflammation, and how to cook with microgreens and nettles.

In their first cookbook, they're throwing down more than 100 recipes for their best-loved meals, snacks, and sides for beginning cooks to home chefs. (Roasted Beer and Lime Cauliflower Tacos? Pumpkin Chili? Grilled Peach Salsa? Believe that sh*t.) Plus they're going to arm you with all the info and techniques you need to shop on a budget and go and kick a bunch of ass on your own. This book is an invitation to everyone who wants to do better to elevate their kitchen game. No more ketchup and pizza counting as vegetables. No more drive-thru lines. No more avoiding the produce corner of the supermarket. Sh*t is about to get real.

Presenting 58 Tastiest Ways to Cook Lentils as Soups, Curries, Snacks, Full Meals and hold your breath, Desserts! As only Indians can. From the author of # 1 Amazon Best seller “Home Style Indian Cooking In A Jiffy” **BONUS Link inside: For a Limited Time Only: The Ultimate Guide to Cooking Rice the Indian Way Available at NO COST if you purchase this book** This is simply the ultimate vegetarian protein cookbook. We all know that as the cheapest and most versatile sources of protein available to mankind, lentils have been cultivated and consumed from the time immemorial. Lentils are mentioned in religious books such as the Bible, Quran and the Vedas. Lentils were so important for those long sea voyages that the Romans named their emperors after the most common legumes: Lentulus (lentil), Fabius (fava), Piso (pea), and Cicero (chickpea). And yet, lentils came to be almost forgotten in the modern post-20th century world with easy availability of red meat and the rise of fast food joints. Now thanks to scientists and expert bodies like the Mayo Clinic, we know that lentils are actually better than meat. Lentils are actually the “Healthiest Food” in the World. * Lentils are good for a Healthy Heart: Lentils contain significant amount of folate and magnesium, both doing wonders for your heart. * Lentils replenish Iron Needed for Energy: Lentils are rich in Iron, which is a vital component of energy production and metabolism in the body. * Lentils are low in cholesterol: Lentils, unlike red meat, are low in fat, calories and cholesterol. They are also somewhat lower in oxalic acid and similar chemicals which cause stone formation in kidneys and result in gout, a painful affliction of joints caused by the deposition of crystals. * Lentils are rich in fibre: If you are looking for ways to reduce constipation, try Lentils as they contain a high amount of dietary fibre, both soluble and insoluble. ˃˃˃ The way Indians cook lentils is unmatched by any other cuisine on Planet Earth. No one can cook lentils the way Indians do. This is because almost every Indian meal has to have a lentil dish, as dal (soup), curry, snack or dessert. So they have centuries of expertise in turning lentils in whichever way you want. On the other hand, most western cook books would, at the most, recommend baking lentils with cheese, putting them in hamburgers, having them with sausages and casseroles or making lentils stew. One is, of course, not counting the lentils sprouts salad or the famous students’ dorm dish of baked beans (straight from the can) as well as the West Asian “sauce” hummus, without which no Lebanese meal can be termed complete. There is nothing wrong if you want to have your lentils this way. ˃˃˃ But if you want to experiment, and wish to embark upon a roller coaster culinary adventure, you must look at Indian cuisine. “The Ultimate Guide to Cooking Lentils the Indian Way” lets you savour, in this background, as many as twenty most popular “Home Style” dal recipes; ten curries; six lentil dishes cooked with rice; eleven snacks; three kebabs; three lentil stuffed parathas; and five desserts. ˃˃˃ It is said that without carrying Sattu or roasted chickpea flour with them, for sustenance on those long and arduous treks, Buddhist monks from Bihar could NOT have spread Buddhism to far off places from Afghanistan and Tibet to Korea!
