Indian-ish

A cookbook by Priya Krishna.

Priya Krishna

Indian food is everyday food! This colourful, lively book is food writer Priya Krishna's loving tribute to her mom's "Indian-ish" cooking-a trove of one-of-a-kind Indian-American hybrids that are easy to make, clever, practical and packed with flavour. Think Roti Pizza, Tomato Rice with Crispy Cheddar, Whole Roasted Cauliflower with Green Pea Chutney and Malaysian Ramen.

Priya's mom, Ritu, taught herself to cook after moving to the U.S. while also working as a software programmer — her unique creations merging the Indian flavours of her childhood with her global travels and inspiration from cooking shows as well as her kids' requests for American favourites like spaghetti and PB&Js. The results are approachable and unfailingly delightful, like spiced, yogurt-filled sandwiches crusted with curry leaves, or "Indian Gatorade" (a thirst-quenching salty-sweet limeade)-including plenty of simple dinners you can whip up in minutes at the end of a long work day.
