Tandoori Home Cooking - Maunika Gowardhan
Tandoori Home Cooking is an approachable, vibrant and flavorful celebration of Indian Tandoori cooking.
Cooking in a tandoor (clay oven) is a technique that dates back to the Bronze Age, and traditionally has always been about bringing the flavor from the clay oven to the vegetables, meats and fresh breads cooked in it. Communal kitchens have centred around the Tandoor for generations across the northern frontier of India, making their way through the Indian subcontinent, and always providing warmth, good food and flavor.
In Tandoori Home Cooking, Maunika Gowardhan, bestselling author of Thali, takes you on a tour to share an explosion of tandoori flavors, spices, recipes and culinary heritage found across the streets and restaurants of India, with dishes that can be made in conventional ovens and grills in your home all year round.
From Aslam Butter Chicken and Zafrani Paneer Tikka, along with Apple, Beet and Mooli Salad and Garlic and Ghee Naan, to Mango and Pistachio Kulfi and Jal Jeera, there is a dynamic selection of classic recipes, all of which can easily be created at home.
With meal planners to guide you on what dishes can be paired together, Tandoori Home Cooking arms home cooks with everything you need to bring tandoori cooking into your own home.
