Flavors of India – “Simplifying tradition”


Flavors of IndiaFlavors of India is a traditional Indian cookbook with somewhat involved recipes. Yet the author, Shanta Rimbark Sacharoff, also includes simpler variations. For example, after her samosa recipe, she includes directions for putting the samosa filling (potatoes, peas, onions, spices) into a pie crust instead of making the labor-intensive, individual, fried samosas. Of course we had to try her Samosa Pie, and it was delicious. All the flavors of this favorite Indian street food in a hearty pie. She suggests serving wedges of it as an appetizer, but we served it as a main course. And the five of us polished it off in one dinner. Ahem.

Throughout the cookbook, Sacharoff provides traditional Indian recipes and simpler variations, which is what I really like about this book.
