To celebrate India’s magnificent Chicken cooking tradition, comes my chicken- focussed cookbook with such exotic spices and taste that you are sure to be left asking for more.
You will learn to cook chicken with yoghurt and coconut milk, mustard and turmeric, curry leaves and garam masala (literally hot spices) and so on.
So forget your somewhat similar tasting chicken nuggets, wings, wraps, and sandwiches. Also say bye to the boring boiled and broiled and baked ways to make chicken and egg dishes and let this new book open your eyes to the wonderful possibilities of cooking chicken the way northern, southern, eastern and western Indians do.
There are 7 starter (or snack) dishes, 8 dry recipes, 15 chicken curries, 5 recipes for cooking chicken with rice, and 8 ways to cook eggs THE INDIAN WAY. For the spice-challenged or nostalgia ridden folks, there are 8 dishes from the days of the British Raj that do use cheese and involve baking, if you were missing that!
And the bottom line is that you master these and you can handle any Indian non-vegetarian dish, I promise.
So if you were till now wondering how to incorporate this superb, low-calorie, high quality protein rich, white meat in your daily diet in the tastiest manner possible, just grab this book with both your hands.
This mission is dedicated to all those friends, relatives and acquaintances who have sampled my mom’s cooking either at my home or at my work place from my lunch-box. I’m starting with Indian cooking, so that the fear of “cooking curries every day” (that my friends in University College London would so often comment on) is banished forever.
We will love to post recipes that are unpretentious and literally come from your Mom's kitchen. They must allow themselves to be rustled up at home, from scratch, from fresh ingredients, in 30 minutes or so, with minimum equipment and fuss. We welcome ideas and tips that prove beyond doubt that cooking at home is NOT drudgery but a very enjoyable activity that also improves your family's health and well-being in a very cost-effective manner.
Those who wish to contribute similar recipes from their parts of the world, here’s a full throated invitation to come join us and make COOKING IN A JIFFY a worldwide movement for HOME STYLE cooking that also celebrates "togetherness in cooking "above everything else. Please send your articles with images (if possible) to this address and we will publish it by your name.
