Author(s): Little India
Since the first restaurant opened in Dunedin twenty-two years ago, Little India has become a firm favourite with lovers of authentic Indian cuisine. Now you can recreate in your own kitchen the traditional curries, rice dishes, breads and accompaniments that feature on the LIttle India menu. Based on recipes handed down through the owners' family, and adapted for home cooks, these dishes dispel the myth that Indian cooking is complex and time-consuming to prepare. Whether you are a novice cook or have plenty of experience, you'll find the recipes shared by Little India in this cookbook are easy to perfect and deliver the mouth-watering tastes of authentic North Indian cooking.
The Little India chain spans New Zealand, with seventeen popular restaurants from Auckland to Invercargill. What sets Little India's cooking apart is the family-based recipes handed down by the original owner's mother Premjit Kaur Gill. Little India chefs are still trained in her kitchen in Chandigarh, in North India, so traditional cooking techniques and values imbue every dish.
