Ammu: Indian Home-Cooking to Nourish Your Soul

Chef and restaurateur Asma Khan (Asma's Indian Kitchen) takes readers back to her childhood home in Ammu, her delectable second cookbook. Named in honor of Khan's mother, Ammu combines warmhearted essays on Khan's family and her culinary journey with mouthwatering photos and recipes. The cookbook includes a range of recipes and ingredients: simple chutneys and snacks; slow-cooking biryanis and a leg of lamb; fried pakoras and grilled meats. Khan shares childhood comfort foods, celebratory meals to feed a crowd and the Western-infused Indian dishes she makes for her London-born sons. Each chapter includes family photos, memories from Khan's life in India and the U.K., and helpful tips for those new to Indian cooking. Ammu provides a feast for both the eyes and the kitchen table. --Katie Noah Gibson, blogger at Cakes, Tea and Dreams
