Masala: Real Indian Cooking for Modern Living

Author(s): Mallika Basu


Masala is a seminal Indian cookbook for a modern generation that reflects the way we live, cook, entertain and eat today.

Food writer Mallika Basu grew up enjoying exotic flavours from across India in an unconventional, bustling home in Kolkata and then spent years recreating them in a London kitchen. Now she shares those recipes, techniques and shortcuts so you too can cook with real Indian flavours without compromising on taste or texture.

Embrace weekday dinners with mustard coconut and chilli-slathered baked fish, wok-friendly Goan chilli beef fry or silken kofta curry made with packs of ready-rolled meatballs. For leisurely weekends, tuck into a feast of Vindaloo pulled pork; give your Sunday roast a sumptuous twist with spicy marinades or enjoy a whole roasted cauliflower encrusted with nut butter. Brunch as Indians do with dosas and whole moong crepes; entertain with crowd pleasing do-it-yourself Calcutta kati rolls, easy-to-assemble platters of baby aubergines drenched in peanut, sesame and coconut, and much, much more.

Mallika 's recipes respect the past and embrace the future in an easy and informal way that will broaden your understanding of Indian cooking, and inspire you to return to these recipes time and time again.
