“Vannakkam” is a Tamil saying meaning “welcome,” and that’s just what this beautiful cookbook does—it welcomes you to a finer level of Indian cuisine. Kumar Mahadevan, the talented chef behind Australia’s iconic restaurants Abhi’s and Aki’s, weaves over 100 recipes with the unique tale of his family’s journey from India to Australia. A spicy blend of contemporary food and authentic cooking, From India covers seafood dishes such as rava methi machi, vegetarian sides such as gutti venkai koora, and a full lineup of traditional curries, organized according to the tastes: salty, bitter, sour, spicy, and sweet. This flavorful trip, with roots in Ayurvedic principles, will take you from the regional fare of India to the streets of Australia without ever leaving your own kitchen.
Can’t get enough of this cookbook. Accessible and delicious.
Can’t get enough of this cookbook. I love Indian food, but in the past when I’ve tried Indian cookbooks they’ve been super intimidating, and the food didn’t taste nearly as good as takeout. This book has been a game-changer, though. It’s loaded with recipes that are really accessible and really delicious. And if you collect a handful of ingredients, you should be able to make pretty much everything in the book. Indian dishes are now our go-to in my household. Oh, and it’s a beautiful book, too, always a bonus!
