A must for first-time cooks who had neither the time nor the inclination t learn from their mothers how to manage kitchen and now find themselves as a loss in their little flatlets. Setting up a kitchen, shopping for the store cupboard, peeling an onion or preparing the most delectable meals, The First-Time Cookbook has it all. For the experienced cook there are about 250 easy-to-cook, no-fuss recipes form around India, ranging from the everyday basics of dal, rice and vegetables to more exotic fares like Baingan ke Bharte ka Raita, Shorshe Maachh and Murgh Khus-khus. Classic dishes that once took hours to minimize working time without compromising on the original taste. A selection from European and West Asian cuisines teaches you how to make a perfect white sauce as easily as Spaghetti alla Marinara, Gazpacho, Hummus-bi-tahina and Banana Flambe. With suggestions for one-dish meals and packed lunches, this is the book for the busy office-goer. Easy to read and liberally sprinkled with tips, shortcuts and variations, it will tempt even the most reluctant cook to enter the kitchen.
