The Jewels of the Nizam: Recipes from the Khansamas of Hyderabad

Geeta Devi (Author)

A delectable mix of Arabic, Mughlai and traditional South Indian influences, today’s Hyderabadi cuisine is the legacy of the Nizams of Hyderabad, whose khansamas were skilled in the use of spices to bring distinctive flavours to the table.

Digging into the 400-year-old history of the royal kitchens of the Nizams, Geeta Devi brings to you a scrumptious array of Hyderabadi recipes to stimulate the palate. From Patthar ka Gosht and Paneer Golkonda to Haleem and Gajar-Methi ka Salan, from Kacche Gosht ki Biryani and Jhinge ka Achaar to Shahi Tukde and Anokhi Kheer-this book reveals the secrets behind a mouth-watering range of delicacies that will delight the modern gourmand.

Illustrated with beautiful images, Geeta Devi’s recipes are accessible and easy to follow, whether you want to serve up a quick vegetarian snack, a complex main course of mixed meats, an unusual variation on the biryani, a tangy pickle or a rich dessert fit for a feast. Accompanied by a glossary of commonly used ingredients in the Indian kitchen, this is a thoughtfully designed and compact book that you can easily carry into your kitchen while you try out the recipes!.
