Kankana Saxena, creator of the popular food blog Playful Cooking, brings fun back to the kitchen with recipes inspired by her upbringing in India. A mix of sweet and savoury chutneys, carb-laden breads and rices and aromatic, hearty dishes like slow-cooked chicken offer depth of flavor and lots of spices, indicative of traditional Bengali cooking. If you're looking for a meal to satisfy body and soul, try one of Saxena's must-have dishes like drool-worthy egg plant fritters (beguni) or fried puffed bread (luchi) as well as sweet tastes like spongy cottage cheese in sugar syrup (roshogolla) or lentil and rice flour cakes (daler pitha). Each bite is rich and delicious, and every recipe is as fun to make as it is to eat. Saxena has garnered a strong social following, having 52,000 Instagram followers, with recipes created for her husband, son and friends. She takes her own beautiful food photos and her blog has grabbed the attention of Plated, SAVEUR and Huffpost. This book will have 75 recipes and 75 photos.
