In Miss Masala, Indian cookery goddess and girl about town Mallika Basu goes from food blogging superstar to author, bringing with her her trademark no-fuss, no-nonsense approach to cooking.
She demystifies all the spices, the exotic ingredients and flavours and reveals how easy it is to cook stylish food at home. Alongside the fantastic recipes are lovely quirky stories and handy hints – like how to cook a jalfrezi and head to the bar an hour later without smelling of your dinner.
The book is like Bollywood meets Sex and the City and is brilliant for those who want to whip up feasts for friends or incorporate Indian food into their repertoires, regardless of how hectic a lifestyle they lead.
