The East Indian Kitchen

 

This book is a collection of Indian regional dishes that are never seen in the limelight despite being very popular in their regions. Through our styling and Pravin Pol’s photography, we have tried to present the dishes in their authentic light using not only ingredients sourced from these regions but also the textures and props involved. Regarding the recipes themselves, each recipe is tried and tested several times before it finally makes it to the book.
