Ever wondered why your grandmother threw a teabag into the pressure cooker while boiling chickpeas, or why she measured using the knuckle of her index finger? Why does a counter-intuitive pinch of salt make your kheer more intensely flavourful? What is the Maillard reaction and what does it have to do with fenugreek? What does your high-school chemistry knowledge, or what you remember of it, have to do with perfectly browning your onions? Masala Lab by Krish Ashok is a science nerd's exploration of Indian cooking with the ultimate aim of making the reader a better cook and turning the kitchen into a joyful, creative playground for culinary experimentation. Just like memorizing an equation might have helped you pass an exam but not become a chemist, following a recipe without knowing its rationale can be a sub-optimal way of learning how to cook. Exhaustively tested and researched, and with a curious and engaging approach to food, Krish Ashok puts together the one book the Indian kitchen definitely needs, proving along the way that your grandmother was right all along.

Eating With History: Ancient Trade-Influenced Cuisines of Kerala is an invaluable compendium of a culinary tradition and variety of food recipes that evolved out of Kerala’s kitchens. The food trail is extensive and as varied as it can get. The proximity to the sea and the natural beauty and resources of the state–especially the fragrant spices which grew in abundance–attracted inhabitants of foreign soils and inspired them to initiate overseas trade along what was later known as the Spice Route. In a state with fish, other sea food and vegetables dominating people’s food habits, the various kinds of meats, foreign cooking techniques and exotic flavours were curried to life from foreign trade influences and became significant foods. There are numerous recipes in each foreign-influenced community in Kerala, well represented in this book, in meticulous detail. These recipes were cherished by the families and handed down generations via cross-cultural interactions within Jews of the Paradesi and Malabari sects, Syrian Christians, Muslims, Anglo-Indians, Latin Catholics and others who mingled with and evolved from the local populace. The book provides a well-researched and rich cultural history of foreign food culture, tracing how the new elements adapted to local food traditions and evolved as a parallel line of foods, creating new textures, flavours and tastes.

Not just a recipe book but a comprehensive survey of culinary delights from the eastern Indian state of Orissa, better known for the architectural splendors of its ancient temples in Konarak and Puri. The author speaks of her own experience in the context of the food she describes meticulously documented by her as she passes through her grandmother's kitchen to her mother's overseen by the family cook. The little anecdotes that accompany some of the recipes provide an unusual glimpse into the middle-class Indian existence the author experienced while growing up in that vast and fascinating country. Comparing and contrasting the techniques refined over generations, with that from diverse and distant cultures, augmented with an extensive bibliography, the book should appeal to a wide spectrum of readers-from the faltering beginner to the serious cook. An unusual chapter on the family cook's contribution might make the orthodox in you squirm but nevertheless offers a glimpse into the evolution of "restaurant-food" in urban Orissa. A scientist by training, the author injects her own scientific-humor into the writing that also makes the book an amusing read.
