Traditional and modern Indian recipes for the home cook - officially authorized by Instant Pot (R)!
The Instant Pot (R) is a game-changer for Indian cooking because it replaces a pressure cooker, slow cooker, yogurt maker, bread proofer and steamer. Gone are the days when preparing Indian food just seemed too intimidating or for weekends only. In The Essential Indian Instant Pot (R) Cookbook, award-winning editor and author Chandra Ram shares 125 recipes from all over India, specifically designed for the Instant Pot (R), that meld Indian ingredients with Western sensibilities.
Recipes range from traditional to modern and go beyond the greatest hits that you see in Indian restaurants. You'll find tons of familiar favourites, including Butter Chicken and Chana Masala, less well-known regional dishes like dosas, biryanis and dal stews, and contemporary twists on Indian flavours, such as Orange Cumin Salmon and Chocolate Chai Pudding. Chandra takes you through cooking all the parts of an Indian meal, ranging from yogurt and cheese to desserts and everything in between. She also offers suggested meal plans, easy substitutions and tips for building an Indian pantry. Cooking Indian food
has never been as approachable, fast or easy!
