Description

Meetha Lassi and Bhel Puri; Paneer Tikka and masalas; chutneys, biryanis and samosas. All visitors to India are greeted by a quite astonishing display of roadside snacks throughout the country: from the teeming lanes of Old Delhi to the hot and dusty streets of the remote countryside. It is painfully hard to resist the smells and sights and tastes of this roadside food, prepared in front of customers' eyes with the freshest ingredients and a generous helping of panache and showmanship. The acclaimed photographer Sephi Bergerson has been tracking down the very best street food in the country, which has been his home for the past seven years. The resulting book is a visual celebration of this splendid everyday cuisine and a virtual feast in itself. With nearly 50 authentic and detailed recipes for the simplest and tastiest dishes in the repertoire, using ingredients easily sourced in the West, this serving will inspire and intoxicate in equal measure.

Review

Most of us will never get the opportunity to sample the street food of India but because of a fascinating new cookbook we can come close...This wonderful blend of both cookbook and photo journey is a feast for the palate as well as the eyes.
– Larry Cox, Tuscon Citizen

In just 50 recipes and under 200 pages, Mr. Bergerson accomplishes the rare feat of capturing how people eat, not just what. He shows people eating, making and clamoring for the outdoor snacks that are nearly universal in India: cool lemonade spiked with cumin and salt, scalding hot sweet tea with ginger, potato cakes with vibrant herb chutneys.
