A range of ideas for starters include yogurt Romesco dip, cheese papad rolls, thepla quesadillas, Masala khandvi pie and even baingan bharta in savoury cones. Yummy!

The main course has delights such as dum aloo jhalmudi, palak paneer frankie rolls and tricoloured dhokla flan.



Asha said, “Nouvelle Indian cuisine is the 12th book in the Epicure series, explains how Indian cuisine can be presented in western style. It was inspired by French nouvelle cuisine, which began over a decade ago. The hallmarks of this cuisine are dishes plated aesthetically in a modern style that are also lighter on the palate. Discover the beautiful combination of the traditional and the modern, and I am sure it will make cooking and eating an ever more pleasurable experience.”

Mrs Amruta Fadnavis added, “ Recipes  today are all over – on blogs,  on the internet. With books like these, the traditional method of having a book shelf, will find the right place.

I got the copy of the book a few days ago and it has  very good ideas and recipes. This book must go international because there are lot more  people out there in the world who actually aspire to cook Indian food and I think there are lot of trending and attractive recipes, with very limited ingredients. I would also want to make these dishes with her sometime, ” added Chef Vicky Ratnani.
