Bombay Lunchbox Review
I was asked to review Bombay Lunchbox by Carolyn Caldicott. I wasn’t sure what I would find but I knew I loved Indian Recipes so thought I would share this book with you and the author is offering this book to one lucky reader! Author Carolyn Caldicott can be found at LoveFood.com. All comments are my own but I did receive this cookbook to facilitate review.
This is a cute hardback book with so many color photos of recipes and life in India. The photos bring this book alive! Carolyn starts off with a little history of how food in India changed after the British established themselves there in the eighteenth century. The heat of the country changed meals and lighter fare became the way of life between breakfast and dinner. The recipes in this book represent what one eats during the midday meal or meals. The new Brits had to learn how to cook their english favorites with new spices they had not encountered.
Most recipes are Gluten Free since the flour used is chickpea flour in India ( And Bob’s Red Mill carries that ). Yogurt is used a lot in the recipes but I am going to try Coconut Yogurt in it’s place when I make these recipes.
This book is divided into the following categories:
- How Tiffin Came About
- Classic Anglo-Indian favourites
- Lunch in a Box
- Afternoon Tiffin
- Tiffin Snacks
- Index of Recipes
