A few days we received this book for a review as I wanted to find out more on a book that promises meals within 30 minutes. For someone like me who loves cooking when it’s quick is of variety and can turn out tasty.
The book has several meals categorised under Rotis, Sabzis, dals, snacks, sweets, rice varieties and so on.
What’s appealing is the simple instructions and a useful tip that turns your known recipe to perfection. I have been trying Vermicilli for a good number of years. But one tip from the book of boiling and draining the water and adding the vermicilli separately made the difference to the dish.
The book has a sizeable collection on non vegetarian dishes including fish and chicken. What scores are the simple practical easy to follow steps and beautiful food photography.
I do wished that the featured images had mentioned the recipe name printed for easy reference, yet this book is for food lovers, for those who love flipping pages of a cook book, for those who love food photography and also people who want to try Indian cuisines. Chetna’s 30 Minute is published by Hachette.
