When Raghavan moved from Mumbai to Minneapolis, he had to learn how to make all his beloved dishes using supermarket ingredients —and now he shows us his secrets in this book.

This book makes obvious why Raghavan won an IACP Award of Excellence for Cooking Teacher of the Year: His voice is clear and encouraging, his directions faultless, his recipes authentic yet completely accessible. But it’s also the stunning new format of the book that makes this a perfect introduction to Indian food. Each section opens with a fully illustrated, full-color foldout lesson in technique that leads the reader step-by-step through one foundation recipe, from a starter—poppadums and spicy dips—to roti, the homemade griddle bread, to a smoky yellow split pea dal, and more. There are seven altogether; do all seven, and they’ll make one knockout meal.
