Review

Praise for Anupy Singla and The Indian Slow Cooker:

"If you love Indian food, have a look at Anupy Singla's The Indian Slow Cooker. Folded in with lush food photography are easy, healthful recipes with traditional flavors." —Lois White, Better Homes & Gardens

"My favorite new slow cooker book is The Indian Slow Cooker by Anupy Singla....Because Indian dishes are rich in spices and robust flavors, they stand up well in slow cookers." —Genevieve Ko, Good Housekeeping, October 14, 2011

"In her friendly voice, Anupy Singla welcomes everyone into her kitchen, even busy and beginner cooks. With her comprehensive guide to ingredients and surprisingly simple and healthy recipes that perfume the house on a cold day, The Indian Slow Cooker is a great first book on Indian cooking. We love recommending it to our customers!" —Lara Hamilton, Owner of The Book Larder, Seattle, WA

“Singla's book goes against what many believe is required of Indian cuisine--infusing hot oil with a whole mess of spices as the base for dishes. Instead, she argues, throw everything into the Crock-Pot and let the aromatics do their thing... the book gives old- and new-school cooks alike ample reason to give Indian food a shot.” —Janet Rausa-Fuller, Chicago Sun-Times, October 20, 2011

"Next time you have a hankering for Indian food, don't think take-out. Think ahead. That's the message from Anupy Singla, author of The Indian Slow Cooker who is on a mission to correct misperceptions about Indian food..." —Michele Kayal, Associated Press, October 26, 2010

"[The Indian Slow Cooker] is slim in appearance, a mere 136 pages. Yet the author has packed its pages with 50-plus recipes, lots of guidance and enough enthusiasm for slow cookers and Indian food that fans of either or both will be prompted to try one of her recipes...” —Judy Hevrdejs, Chicago Tribune, April 6, 2011

"Anupy is really on to something here. In 50 well-crafted and imaginative recipes, Anupy shows you how to use the modern slow cooker to get the beautiful, complex flavors of her ancient native cuisine. A book that will surprise you.” —Dorie Greenspan, author of Baking with Julia and Around My French Table, as well as contributing editor to Parade magazine, December 23, 2010

"Ms. Singla says her book is aimed at anyone who wants to eat more vegetarian food and she doesn’t believe in calling Indian food ‘spicy’ or ‘exotic’ anymore." —Wall Street Journal, India Real Time Blog, August 24, 2010

"Anupy has a fantastic blog, Indian As Apple Pie, a beautiful cookbook, "The Indian Slow Cooker", and an innovative spice box product now being offered by Williams-Sonoma." —Nancy Loo, WGNtv.com, September 5, 2011

"For those who love Indian food--or who are interested in starting to explore it--Anupy shows how to prepare the classic dishes in healthful versions that use far less oil and saturated fat than traditional recipes...Anupy introduces the mainstay spices of an Indian kitchen, and how to store, prepare, and combine them in different preparations.” —WLS-ABC Channel 7, March 26, 2011

"The talented and beautiful Anupy Singla, author of The Indian Slow Cooker, understands that many home cooks are intimidated by Indian spices and cooking. So she created spice packets, small bundles of 5 essential Indian spices, that will get anyone cooking Indian. Demystify something for people, and they will love you.” —Susan Russo, writer for FoodBlogga blog and contributor to NPR’s Kitchen Window

"Singla's recipes, and writing in general, exudes common sense and practicality...Straightforward, healthy recipes for easy preparations of all your favourite Indian dishes combined with mouthwatering photographs make this a cookbook any lover of Indian food will appreciate." —Rebecca Baugniet, EAT Magazine

"Singla's first book, The Indian Slow Cooker, is packed with braises, both meat-and vegetable-based. Her newest book embodies how she often eats: a vegetable-based diet heavy on herbs and spices, and loaded with flavor." —Tasting Table Chicago, August 20, 2012

"Chicago-based cookbook author Anupy Singla has cultivated a devoted following by showing readers how to master Indian spices and make great-tasting Indian food at home. In her second offering, Vegan Indian Cooking, she tackles the perhaps more difficult endeavor of demystifying vegan cuisine." —Sarah Terez-Rosenblum, Chicago Sun Times, August 23, 2012

You NEED this book in your life.I just got this book a week ago, and have made at least a dozen recipes so far! I didn't think I could love any Vegan Style Indian book more than her first one (The Indian Slow Cooker), but this is just as great! SO excited about this ALLl VEGAN book!! So many veggies including kale, okra, sweet potatoes, cabbage. Soups & Breads. Salads that sound amazing-think spicy fruits, carrots, daikons! Slow Cooker & Stovetop recipes. Can't wait to make the South Indian Crepes. The dishes are already very healthy with emphasis on whole foods & dried beans. Anupy uses small amounts of oil and salt. I have found that you can skip both of those and still have great food. Last night we had the Kale Pizza breads-a super quick snack. Oh, and it has Anupy's best on the planet Chai recipe. And the drink section includes Iced Coffee & Green Drinks-for those of us who don't just do one or the other! Very inexpensive on Amazon and a lifetime of Indian food. Ingredients are inexpensive. Now should I whip up another dish with the cabbage before hubby comes home....decisions.....

Just a few of the recipes I have tried so far....Besan Poora (Chickpea Flour Crepes), Street Corn Salad, Jeera Aloo (Cumin Potato Hash), Punjabi Khardi (Chickpea Flour Curry with Veggies), Band Gobi (Punjabi Style Cabbage), Samosas, Cabbage with Mustard Seeds and Coconut, Methi Palak Aloo (Fenugreek Spinach Potatoes), Bhindi Masala (Crackling Okra), Sweet and Sour Potatoes, Spicy Plantains, Jeera Chawal (Cumin Rice), Tofu Curry, Mock Keema, Masala Tofu Scramble, Chickpea Poppers...

Looking forward to trying the homemade yogurt (vegan of course!

I am not a vegan.. I'm not even a vegetarian. I eat fish once in awhile, and I eat very little dairy. But I live in Chicago, right off Devon, so I know my way around Indian cooking. And I consider Indian food one of the TOP THREE cuisines in the world, along with Thai and Mexican, imho. And this new cookbook, Vegan Indian Cooking, is really great!
I know from experience that Indian cooking at first can seem a bit daunting because the list of ingredients can go on forever, but once you get a few basic staples it's really very simple, even for an inexperienced cook. And Anupy Singla makes it very easy to understand. I can easily see making EVERY recipe in this book!
Vegetarian food does NOT have to be boring. And this book proves that VEGAN food can be both healthy AND UNBELIEVABLY DELICIOUS!
Thank you, Anupy, for this wonderful and valuable cookbook.

My wife and I are vegan and have tried many different recipes we found on the internet that were rated highly. They were all just "meh".

This book, however, is full of unbelievably tasty and easy to make recipes. If you're looking for easy to make GREAT Indian food then you need this book. The recipes online and elsewhere can't compare at all.

Every single recipe we have tried from this book (and we've tried MANY so far) have been a smashing success. Everything about this book and these recipes scream authentic and you will become addicted to this cuisine. The book is well organized and her recipes are well formatted and easy to follow. There are little stories and tips about each recipe given. Very nice touch.

There are many Indian dishes in this book that you can find at restaurants but these recipes DESTROY restaurant made food. A wonderful example is chana masala. THE BEST I've ever had. The book is chock full of recipes for things I've never even heard of and can't pronounce but they are fantastic dishes.

Even if you aren't vegan you should get this book for easy to make healthy recipes. You will likely need to visit an Indian grocery store or do some shopping online for some of the spices. As far as I can tell you can also find all of the spices you need (and can't find in a regular grocery store) right here on Amazon for good prices.

This book is amazing for several reasons. Its not intimidating, I feel like I can take on any of these recipes, its well laid out and easy to read, and as she mentions other recipes she labels the page it can be located on. I totally dig the introduction she wrote and am glad she wrote about her experience with food in her family and wanting to preserve whole foods cooking, and I relate to that and want the same for my daughter. I really appreciate her giving the Hindi words along with the english words as she writes. When I go into Indian markets I already feel like an outsider, and knowing exactly what I'm looking for in both languages takes out confusion for me and the shop owner. This book is well thought out and has a warm encouraging stand point and it would be a fantastic addition to any kitchen library, Vegan and omnivore alike Thank you Anupy Singla for writing this book =D !!!

I started with the Anupy's crockpot book, and that opened the door to the world of Indian food for me. But this book has sucked me in even farther, and I am for the first time in my life trying a vegetarian diet. The recipes are clearly and beautifully presented, so damn delicious and SATISFYING that I truly don't miss my dead cows and chickens. I own a lot of cookbooks, and most of them seldom (if ever) get used - but these 2 books are already food splattered and dog-eared. If you are looking for an Indian cookbook, this is one you need.
