Updated with 10 new menus and dozens of new recipes!
This new 10th anniversary edition of Menus & Memories from Punjab brings readers even more classic favorites from the Punjabi kitchen with 10 new menu chapters and dozens of new recipes.
Princes, poets, farmers and Punjabi immigrants across generations live on in these recipes and vignettes. At the heart of this cookbook-memoir is the story of two women, a Punjabi villager and her American daughter-in-law, and the lives they built together. More than an exceptional guide to India’s most popular cuisine, this is also the intimate saga of a Punjabi family told through the food that had sustained and comforted them through the years.
Each chapter features a family story along with recipes for a full meal, from appetizers, entrees, and sides to desserts. Sidhu also includes make-ahead timetables for easy meal prep, glossaries of foods and spices, as well as a resource section for finding Indian ingredients.
These thirty-two menus feature a wide-ranging array of foods—from rustic roadside dhaba offerings like Buttermilk Stew with Vegetable Pakoras and the famous Saag and Mukke Di Roti (Stewed Mixed Greens with Corn Flatbread), to elegant Roast Leg of Lamb and Royal Bread Pudding that have graced the tables of Maharajahs.
