The Indian Family Kitchen by Anjali Pathak

 Indian Food is a favorite in our home. Unfortunately, we have to travel to get to restaurants that serve it. This book, The Indian Family Kitchen, is the answer to my problem. With ingredients that are readily available at most grocery stores, the recipes are easy to prepare and full of the deep flavors we love. One thing I really like about this book is the inclusion of beef. 
The recipes are for any level of cooking expertise. No need to be intimidated by cooking Indian food, the spices do most of the work for you. 
The book has several chapters:
Light Bites
Big Bites
Feel-Good Factor
Veggies Galore
BBQ Indian Summer
Those Little Extras
Sugar & Spice
Cocktail Time.

The author even does an Indian spin on the classic creme brulee dessert, calling it chai brulee. Can you imagine?

She also includes a classic chai recipe which appeals to the chai lover in me.

Sharing family photos is another lovely part of this book. This is a treasure.
