Prashad at Home & Prashad Cookery Book
Prashad at Home
Traditional recipes have been simplified using readily available ingredients. These are the quick dishes that can be prepared in the evenings when you’re tired after work, meals to leave bubbling away while you relax at the weekend and feasts for special occasions – as well as everything you need to serve alongside: the breads, the rice and the chutneys. You’ll also find many recipes drawing influence from British, Chinese and Italian cuisines – a perfect combining of cultures in the kitchen. And, because Gujaratis are well known for their sweet teeth, there are plenty of snacks and treats too. Life is all about balance after all.
Times have changed and what we eat should suit our lifestyle, but whether you have 20 minutes or two hours, cooking should be enjoyed, bringing both you and those you are cooking for pleasure.
From bhajis to feast biryanis to beans on toast, Gujarati-style, here are more than 100 recipes to bring warmth, taste and texture into your home, all made with the Patel’s characteristic love and passion for vegetarian food.
Prashad 'Indian Vegetarian Cooking' Cook Book
A vibrant and original vegetarian cookbook that brings authentic Indian cooking into your own kitchen. Vegetarian food will never taste the same again!
100 delicious vegetarian Indian recipes from Gordon Ramsay's "Best Restaurant" runner-up Prashad. The Patels and Prashad, their small Indian restaurant in Bradford, were the surprise stars of Ramsay's "Best Restaurant" TV show in autumn 2010. Everyone who saw them fell in love with this inspirational family dedicated to serving delicious, original vegetarian food. At the heart of the family is Kaushy, who learned to cook as a child growing up on her grandmother's farm in northern India.
On moving to northern England in the 1960s, she brought her passion for fabulous flavours with her and has been perfecting and creating dishes ever since. Never happier than when feeding people, Kaushy took her son Bobby at his word when he suggested that she should share her cooking with the world - a launderette was converted first in to a deli and then a restaurant, and Prashad was born.Now Kaushy shares her cooking secrets - you'll find more than 100 recipes, from simple snacks to sumptuous family dinners, to help you recreate the authentic Prashad experience at home. Whether it's cinnamon-spice chickpea curry, green banana satay, spicy sweetcorn or chaat - the king of street-side India - there's plenty here for everyone to savour and share.
