Description
"Please teach me Indian cooking! I will bring ingredients and pay you for your trouble. I would like to know about your culture as well." With this posting on Craigslist.com, Nani Power began her journey to learn traditional Indian cooking in the most ancient of ways: woman to woman. Welcomed into the homes of strangers, Power met Indian women of all ages and backgrounds, and from them learned the skills that were passed on to them from their mothers. In this utterly unique book, Power takes the reader into a culture, a cuisine, and the psyche of modern women of both American and of Indian descent, searching for identity and a definition. The recipes shared in this collection are treasured family legacies from vegetarian homes in India, and range from homemade paneer—cheese cubes in a rich cilantro and almond curry—to coconut-stuffed okra and luscious potato-curry dumplings.

"In the same vein as Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat, Pray, Love, this book weaves together one woman's encounter with Indian cuisine and culture and her own life, love, and spirituality. This descriptive, introspective narrative ... is also informative for those wishing to focus on the food."—Library Journal
