Ambrosia: From the Assamese Kitchen

Jyoti Das (Author)
Synopsis The first comprehensive cookbook on Assamese cuisine, Ambrosia…From the Assamese Kitchen presents an array of delectable dishes that reflects the variegated hues of the culture of Assam. The Assamese believe that food is a gift of God, and its preparation a form of prayer. Like the simple Assamese people, the food of Assam is rather bland and simple, with little or no spice at all; yet it is delicious. Regional aromatic herbs add varied flavour to the cuisine, making it simple, yet savoury and wholesome. The author’s knowledge of different Assamese dishes stems from her profound understanding of Assamese culture and tradition, which come to life in the pages of the book. This book contains more than a hundred recipes from the land of simple folk and rich cultural legacy, and is a must –have for those ready to try out mouth-watering delicacies which are easy to make, healthy, and simply delectable.
