Overview


You’re invited to a party where the food and entertainment are both in Technicolor. It’s “dinner and a movie” in this vibrant, beautifully photographed tour of Indian food and films.
 
Indian cuisine and Indian cinema (known as Bollywood) share much in common – bold colors and flavors with plenty of drama. But to the uninitiated, they can seem dizzying. Let Sri Rao be your guide. As one of the only Americans working in Bollywood, Sri is an expert on Indian musical films, and as an avid cook, he’s taken his mom’s authentic, home-cooked recipes and adapted them for the modern, American kitchen.
 
The popularity of Indian food has grown immensely in recent years – and for good reason. It's perfectly suited for people who love bold flavors, as well as those looking for vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free meals that don’t skimp on taste. But as Sri points out in Bollywood Kitchen – you’ve probably never tasted real Indian food. Home-cooked Indian-American food is surprisingly simple to make, using ingredients readily available in your local grocery store.
 
In this book you’ll find dinner menus and brunch menus, menus for kids and menus for cocktail parties. Along with each healthy and easy-to-prepare meal, Sri has paired one of his favorite Bollywood movies. Every one of these films is a musical, packed with dazzling song-and-dance numbers that are the hallmark of Bollywood, beloved by millions of fans all over the world. Sri will introduce each film to you, explaining why you’ll love it, and letting you in on some juicy morsels from behind the scenes.
 
Bollywood Kitchen is as much a beautiful coffee table book as it is a cookbook, filled with gorgeous film photographs and colorful tablescapes. It’s a unique treasure for Indian food lovers, as well as fans of world cinema.
