Fancy some Indian?

I received some cook books from The Penguin Group. One of them was this one called Simple Indian by Atul Kochhar. I like the front cover - that beautiful blue of the counter or table reminds me of the ocean. I have only just recently started cooking Indian food so i am by no means a word of authority in this field of cooking. (not sure if I'm a word of authority in any field) but I can firmly say I am definitely not in this one...

So Indian food. Which Simply translates in my brain to curry! I know Indian food is so many more things than just curry but I can safely say curry is the first thing that comes to my mind. (Im sure Im not the only one.) So this cookbook arrived to change my mind - that Indian is so much more than just curry. Just listen to these recipes: Crab Salad with coconut and curry leaves, or Kashmiri apple pudding, or Baked yoghurt with figs in syrup... YUM!

So while I'm off trying these delicious goodies and cooking my way through this book. I have 2 copies to give away.
