Chilli & Mint: Indian Home Cooking from A British Kitchen

by Torie True


The debut book from British author, blogger, and cooking teacher Torie True is a brilliantly curated collection of recipes from across the Indian Subcontinent, from Sikkim in the north to Sri Lanka in the south, with a healthy serving from Bengal (the home of her Kolkata-born husband), and a focus on vegetarian dishes. Recipes are carefully explained, and True makes real Indian home-cooking a deliciously achievable prospect.
