Tandoor: The Great Indian Barbecue

Tandoor: The Great Indian Barbecue

By Ranjit Rai
262 Pages
2001, The Overlook Press

ISBN 1-58567-144-4

Amazon price: $28.00

This is a fabulous book for truly adventurous cooks who want to learn a new craft and significantly expand their culinary repertoire. Of course, it helps if they are fans of Indian tandoori cuisine. Originally published by Penguin Books India, this exciting new edition had been fully edited for easy use by Western cooks who want to bring the flavors of Indian barbecue to their home tables.

This is a gorgeous book, chock full of beautiful full color photos. Itís obvious that this delicious style of Indian cuisine holds a close and dear place in the authorís heart, as this is nothing short of a love letter to the style of cooking he loves.

The book begins with a history of tandoor cooking, information about tandoor ovens and their construction (not to worry, you can make great tandoor recipes at home without having this exotic piece of kitchen equipment), and a discussion of tandoor cooking throughout the world.

The "Invisible Work" chapter goes into the behind the scenes preparation that goes into making fabulous tandoor dishes -- basic preparation, tenderizers, marinades and final stage preparations.

After the cooking tutorials, youíll find the recipes -- over 70 in all for virtually every classic Indian tandoori style of dish available. In addition, youíll find great recipes for accompaniments and accoutrements like side dishes, vegetarian dishes, chutneys, relishes, Indian breads, tenderizers, marinades and more.

Throughout the book, the beautiful full-color photos keep things interesting and inspiring.

If you think barbecue is just ribs, take a walk on the wild side and explore the Indian side of barbecue.
