I have a girlfriend who can make the most interesting foods. She is not daunted by complex recipes or ingredients that you hear little about. I am amazed at the amazing dishes that come from her kitchen. And now I can do some of the same things.
How? Did I become a world renown chef overnight? Are the cooking gods smiling on me? Well in a way they are and I am. Well with the help of Komali Numma and her amazing cookbook Entertaining-From an Ethnic Indian Kitchen.
Oh my, just looking at the beautiful photos make this a rich book. The golds, reds, oranges, shining all for my eyes to see. And not only will I be able to cook these amazing meals but....I now can decorate just as well. Yes, multi talented!
There is directions for easy ways to set your table for a spectacular meal. What traditions go with different dishes and what spices help in which areas. I have to say that I have never had a cookbook teach me so much in meal preparation as this one has.
I will share one of the desserts that is used in the Elegant Dinner Menu.
Here is a video from Komali Nunna showing you how to make her Carrot Salad. You will find it is easy and beautiful at the same time. You can find more about Entertaining-From an Ethnic Indian Kitchen on her web site too.
