Nadiya Hussain releases spicy cookbook
“This is my world, it has been from the moment I took a whiff of my mum's cooking. Spices need not be daunting.
Don’t believe everything you hear. Spices are robust, they add flavour, add colour and spices make food taste out of this world. I want to make spices a part of your world. So this book features my favourite spices that have been used in my family for three generations and it is time to share the love that we cook up everyday.” – Nadiya
Cardamom, fennel, cinnamon, turmeric, cumin, chilli, bay leaves and curry powder are all the spices needed to create any recipe in this book. Nadiya uses these eight readily available spices at home to cook her most-loved meals, the same spices that her mum uses and her Nani used before her.
From beautiful breakfasts, midday lunches and staples, to tips for the perfect saucepan of rice, our favourite middle of the table curries, vegetables, side dishes and sweets, readers will be confident in cooking extraordinary family food, filled to the brim with easy-to-achieve flavour.
Recipe highlights from Nadiya’s Simple Spices include: Bombay Potatoes, Crispy Leek Biryani, Saag Aloo Chicken Jalfrezi and Kulfi Ice Cream Bars.
