I adore Indian cuisine and I am so excited to have the opportunity to review the Café Spice Cookbook. The author of the book, Chef Hari Nayak, is on a mission to spread the enjoyment of Indian cuisine to everyone he meets. The Café Spice Cookbook is a wonderful book that is perfect for today’s health-conscious home cooks to prepare light and fresh version of classic Indian dishes, most of which are naturally vegetarian and gluten free recipes.
There are 84 quick and easy Indian recipes to choose from. I also love the fact that most of the recipes are ready in 30 minutes. Chef Nayak covered recipes on Chutneys and Accompaniments, Vegetables and Cheese, Fish and Seafood, Poultry and Meat, Breads, Rice and Grains, to Desserts and Drinks. For sure, you’re going to find something that you would like to prepare and learn more about in this wonderful book. There are many recipes from the book that I can’t wait to try, such as Dried Bombay Beef, Spiced Crab Cakes, Coconut Rice and Mango Lassi.
This Café Spice Cookbook will also walk you through some simple techniques such as browning, deep-frying, roasting and grinding of spices, which are all essentials to the success of Indian cooking. He also explain some helpful tips and tools he used in the recipe, along with a detail list of Indian Ingredients. I am surprised that I already have most of the spices and ingredients in my pantry. I guess the Chinese cuisine and Indian cuisine do share some similarity in the spices we use.
