This book is the first in the series called Khana Khazana: Celebration of Indian Cookery which has been planned in order to familiarize food lovers with long forgotten regional cuisines of India. These recipes will open the doors to the unexplored range of recipes that had been relegated to the archives.
A lot of painstaking research has gone into collecting these recipes. Each state and region here has its own cuisine and local flavour. In this book we have introduced a variety of dishes that had been perfected by our ancestors. At the same time care has been taken to ensure that the ingredients used are easily available and if not a substitute has been suggested. Chettinad Fried Chicken, Kombdi Wada, Chingri Malai Curry, Rayalseema Pesarettu, Kolhapuri Pandhra Rassa, Kesari Rajbhog, Khajoori Shahi Tukra are just a glimpse of the fabulous tongue tickling recipes you will find between the two covers of this book. They will not only bring in India's diversity into your home kitchens but also help you to satiate the best of gourmet palates.
