Book Description
Back of the Book

In the Indian way of classification, foods are grouped into three categories—sattvic (goodness/ equanimity), rajasic (passion/stimulants) and tamasic (ignorance/sedative). Onions and garlic—classified as rajasic and tamasic—are supposed to increase passion and ignorance. For those who subscribe to pure brahmana-style of cooking this is the book to possess. Easy to cook, with delectable recipes for every meal—be it breakfast, lunch, tea or dinner—No Onion No Garlic gives you fresh recipes as well as regular favourites with new permutations. Add this compilation to your collection of recipe books. Enjoy foods fit to offer a God.

About the Author

Master Chef Sanjeev Kapoor's No Onion No Garlic will, for once and for all, dispel the myth that to cook delicious food you need to use onions and garlic. Within the covers of this book you will find a wonderful collection of recipes which are cooked with a combination of herbs and spices that excude a lingering taste.

While we agree that onions and garlic do make certain dishes totally special, No Onion No Garlic will reinstate the truth that the two wonder bulbs are not the final word in gourmet cooking. Nature has given us myriad spices; herbs and condiments that add their own special flavour and help in making food extra special.

These splendid recipes can be enjoyed anytime, all the time and are meant for those who are on religious fasts. In fact the next time you host a grand dinner party at home, plan the menu around these scrumptious recipes and enjoy the accolades that will come your way. Go the No Onion No Garlic way and enjoy the pleasures of sattvic eating.
