Around The World With The Tadka Girls is without a doubt one of the most complete cookbooks on Indian cuisine that can be found. Ranjini Rao and Ruchira Ramanujam takes us on a journey through a world of smells, colors, flavors and contrasts. This recipe book is a wonderful opportunity to get to know and experience one of the oldest kitchens in the world.
Indian cuisine is not only made up of curries and rice dishes. On the contrary, each region is distinguished by its own culinary characteristics. The dishes of the south of the country are in general much more spicy than those of the north, with a milder flavor but also more aromatic.
The use of spices has reached a degree of perfection unmatched in Indian cuisine, both in quantity and imagination used. In this book you will find detailed recipes of the specialties that best illustrate the variety and at the same time exquisiteness of Indian cuisine.
The taste for good food is a characteristic common to all regions of India and an essential element in their family and cultural life. This cookbook shares s delicious experience through the best traditional and contemporary recipes. There are quick and easy to prepare dishes, detailed step by step and accompanied by tips. You can immerse yourself in the fascinating world of Indian cuisine and become a master of the use of spices.
In addition, the work also includes a broad description of spices and aromatic herbs used in Indian cuisine. There is also explanation of some techniques of this extraordinary cuisine and an introduction to the traditions and peculiarities of Indian cuisine. The proposed recipes are quick and easy to prepare, and cover all kinds of dishes.
It contains special sections on the pantry and spices, ideas for menus and an index of ingredients. The photographs and illustrations are simply irresistible. I loved this book, not only because of its wonderful photographs but because the recipes are simple and all seem delicious.
The book has a lovely cover. It contains varied recipes organized by theme like Breakfast & Brunch, Bites n Brews, Soups and Salads, Bread Basket, Pasta 'n Rice, Signature Tadka, Sweet Treats, Fiesta Fare and Funnibbles. I think it's a very interesting book, which will appeal to lovers of home cooking.
I do not like those collections that seem exclusively oriented to women. What I do want me to tell you is that it has healthy recipes for girls in a hurry. And yes, I succumbed. But I do not regret it at all, because Ranjini Rao and Ruchira Ramanujam have written a fun book that will be useful for me.
I have never looked at what I eat nor have I worried about whether I got fat or not, but I am aware that we have to eat well, above all, for health. And as I turn years, I'm getting more and more important. But I do not have time (neither desire nor deep knowledge, why deny it) of getting into the kitchen for hours.
I do not want to imagine those who work outside. So I hoped that Around The World With The Tadka Girls was a simple and direct book that gave me a few ideas to innovate from time to time. And, luckily, I found that and much more.
To begin with, Ranjini Rao and Ruchira Ramanujam become theoretical, but with all the grace of the world. I had never heard of them and have been a discovery, because they are very important in our day to day and in those cravings that give us without coming to mind.
After the basic explanations, the authors give us tricks of the most varied. They also review the nutritional pyramid, which currently takes into account many more aspects than the amounts of food we consume. Although they are habits that we all know more or less, it never hurts to have them targeted and in sight to not forget them.
In the next part of the book, Ranjini Rao and Ruchira Ramanujam suggest a few healthy recipes, simple to make and quick! There are others more original but also very fast!
Finally, they give us guidelines so that we avoid throwing away food and optimize the cold of the fridge. What Ranjini Rao and Ruchira Ramanujam tell us is all that our mothers and friends could advise us, or what we could search in Google. But sometimes it saves time to have all that information at hand, gathered in a single book.
And those of us who are always going against the clock know how important that is. So pay attention to me and keep an eye on Around The World With The Tadka Girls. It does not matter if you are men or women, surely you will all learn something new and you will laugh.
