Annapurni: Heritage Cuisine from Tamil Nadu

In Annapurni, author Sabita Radhakrishna cooks up a delicious feast of traditional Tamil dishes that are authentic and easy to use. She presents a careful selection of recipes borrowed from Tamil Nadu’s diverse local people, as well as those of communities settled in the state, integrating the local cuisine with their own unique styles of cooking. These include the delectable dishes of the Mudaliars, Vellalas, Naidus, Kongunadus, Anglo Indians, Chettiars, and Tamil Muslims. Inspired by her family’s appreciation of good, home-cooked food, she shares some of her mother's trademark dishes that define the Mudaliar community. A true reflection of Tamil Nadu’s diverse ethnic heritage, the book includes a delicious variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian food, from Chettinad chicken curry to almond puris. Like every good, dog-eared and much-used family cookbook, Annapurni has been compiled with careful deliberation and bears the look and feel of what could have been one's grandmothers' diary of recipes. This volume will have readers salivating as it takes them on a mouth-watering journey across the flavours of India’s south-eastern coast with its spices, seafood, and sweets, ending with a stainless-steel tumbler of freshly-brewed filter coffee.(jacket)
