Our Diwali event may be over – but it’s still fresh in our minds. When visitors entered Flushing Town Hall, they met Dr. Suman Bhavnagar and leafed through her amazing cookbook, Rajasthan On A Platter: Healthy, Tasty, Easy, discovering tradition, easy-to-cook Rajasthani meals and related food recipes.
Happily, we can now say the book is for sale on Amazon, and makes the perfect gift this season. You can purchase the book here.
The book presents recipes for young homemakers, future chefs and all food connoisseurs. It transfers homegrown knowledge to the young generation and caters to multicultural readership. Each recipe has been combined with supplementary food items to present the concept of a tasty, wholesome and nutritious meal.
They focus on a fast-changing society where “snacking” is replacing full sit-down meals and “finger food” and “quick bites” fulfill the purpose of a light dinner. The dishes add plenty of nutritive value to the diet and cater to the eating habits and fast lifestyle of the multi-tasking generation. The select recipes are grouped in five categories cereals, pulses, vegetables, non-vegetarian dishes and special dishes for festivals.
