A Handbook for Lazy Cooks
This cookbook has been structured to take you through a week, with a suggested menu on a day by day basis. We have tried to work with our personal perspective – foods with a mix of both North Indian & South Indian recipes, with a sprinkling of Continental, Thai and Chinese as well!
Some of the dishes may sound complex and intimidating to begin with but trust us; we have made it simple. More
Whipping up a delicious meal comes naturally for some, but for the rest of us, walking on coals would be more welcome! From deciphering recipes to sourcing ingredients to planning menus, the process seems too cumbersome and simply too much effort! Why bother? Settling in front of the television with an ordered-in pizza seems like a much better idea!
But at the bottom of our hearts, we know – the charm of home-made meal is unbeatable. There are innumerable reasons, from better health to being more economical, as to why cooking up something in our kitchen is worth the effort.
Since ‘What to cook for the next meal?’ can strike fear in the hearts of even experienced cooks, let alone those less-familiar with the kitchen, we thought some help is needed. For those of us just starting to learn the art of cooking and wean ourselves away from fast food, a simple recipe is half the battle won.
If you are just toying with the idea of cooking, our cookbook can help! It is aimed at making cooking as easy and trauma-free as possible.
Our recipes are perhaps ones you have all heard before and had it a million times courtesy your mom, yet our aim will be to help you try them out in the most simplistic way.
From day-to-day meals to happy twists for those special festival days, from easily available substitutes to effective fire fighting options for cooking disasters like burnt or overcooked dishes, our book will cover them all. We will take you through interesting ingredients easily available in the local groceries. We will help you to cheat on the rigors of tradition, help build your kitchen garden, plan your small picnics and get-together with sweat-free, happy fares.
Interspersed with facts that you should know, myths that could be easily busted, history of certain foods we eat everyday yet know so little about, we promise that our cookbook will be more than a dreary list of recipes.
Our mission will be to help you explore your lazy side so that you can hum a tune or two, find time for your friends and loved ones yet cook up a storm with these simple recipes and enjoy the joys of a delicious home-cooked meal made in a jiffy.
