This book teaches us all how to eat vegetarian recipes for life. Sandwiches, grills, salads, snacks and appetizers, and of course main dishes and curry recipes with their accompaniments, are all included. Breakfasts, brunches and barbecues supply unexpected treats, such as mile-high chickpea pancakes with Indian purple coleslaw and Delhi-style chargrilled sweetcorn with a spicy lime rub. Many of Anjum Anand's recipes are family favourites or based on the vibrant street food culture of India, adapted to bring them bang up to date.
