Mysore Style Cooking is a unique Indian cookbook straight from one
of the humblest culinary experts of Mysore, India Ms. V. Sandhya.
This is Indian food as you will never find it in the umpteen
commercial Indian restaurants present in our cities. Sandhya draws
from the generations of knowledge, passed down to her by her
family, to bring to the world recipes that are Ayurvedically
balanced and delightful in flavor. We expect these secret recipes
to be complicated and mysterious, only to discover that they are
simple to prepare - they just needed to be written down and passed
on. Mysore Style Cooking includes over 60 of these much treasured
recipes as well as over 70 full page color images, interspersed
with personal stories and images of life in Mysore. To bring you
these wonderful recipes Ms V. Sandhya has delved deeply into her
treasure trove of family recipes, some of which span generations.
The food is simple, delicious and Ayurvedically designed to be
balanced. This is traditional Mysore style cooking enhanced by
Sandhya's extensive knowledge of the yogic diet. This is vegetarian
food at its best, ranging from uppittu and dosa, eaten mostly for
breakfast through to palyas, curries, sambal, chutneys and raitas
as well as sweet dishes such as pongals and rasayanas. If you ever
wanted to know what Indian people eat at home, rather than the fare
served at commercial restaurants, than Mysore Style Cooking will
provide you with the secrets to those recipes.
