This treasure trove of knowledge about the recipes has been passed on to me from my mother and to her by my grandmother. I believe sharing is caring, and so, I wanted to share this treasure with one and all. Simplified Cooking offers the cook recipes which are innovative and encourages them to experiment and enhance the flavours of their favourite dish. Experimenting would also lead to improvisation in technique and might give the recipes a new texture. “A recipe has no soul. As the cook, you must bring soul to the recipe.” This is the adage I believe in. In this book I have tried my best to put soul and love to the recipes. Simplified Cooking is more than a book of recipes; this is a collection of ideas. This book contains recipes which are really innovative and easy to make. They take time, but they are really delicious in the end if all the ingredients are added the right way as written in the book. I think if you improvise these recipes on your own, then it will be good for you because improvisation is the soul of the great cooking you do at your homes.
