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.

About the author

Geetika Popli, was born and brought up in Delhi. After completing her postgraduate diploma in management (HR), she started to work in a big organisation. The true calling of her was not completing the HR rosters but to seek another adventure. After working for a year and a half she decided to take a sabbatical from work as she wanted to spend some time in her life. She already had a diary of recipes with her of dishes cooked by her mother and grandmother, she had been maintaining her diary for a while and this came in handy during her working days.

The idea of turning a recipe diary into a book came to her mind when she realised that so many of her colleagues and friends were in the same position as her and were desirous of following her recipes. Her Grandmother (nani ji as she fondly called her), was her inspiration. She was of the opinion that young people like her should have access to recipes which were not only easy to make but also nutritious at the same time.

In her book “Simplified cooking — Maa ke haath ka khana“she has tried to bring out the soul of Indian traditional cooking for young and old alike. The book has recipes which have evolved since time immemorial and have been passed on from one generation to another. This book is an attempt to encourage more and more people to enjoy cooking at home and for the people who enjoy eating more than cooking the dishes appreciate the effort of the home cooks.

A perfect and irresistible idea: A cookbook filled with delicious, healthful recipes created for everyone on a tight budget.

While studying food policy as a master’s candidate at NYU, Leanne Brown asked a simple yet critical question: How well can a person eat on the $4 a day given by SNAP, the U.S. government’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program informally known as food stamps? The answer is surprisingly well: Broiled Tilapia with Lime, Spicy Pulled Pork, Green Chile and Cheddar Quesadillas, Vegetable Jambalaya, Beet and Chickpea Salad—even desserts like Coconut Chocolate Cookies and Peach Coffee Cake. In addition to creating nutritious recipes that maximize every ingredient and use economical cooking methods, Ms. Brown gives tips on shopping; on creating pantry basics; on mastering certain staples—pizza dough, flour tortillas—and saucy extras that make everything taste better, like spice oil and tzatziki; and how to make fundamentally smart, healthful food choices.

The idea for Good and Cheap is already proving itself. The author launched a Kickstarter campaign to self-publish and fund the buy one/give one model. Hundreds of thousands of viewers watched her video and donated $145,000, and national media are paying attention. Even high-profile chefs and food writers have taken note—like Mark Bittman, who retweeted the link to the campaign; Francis Lam, who called it “Terrific!”; and Michael Pollan, who cited it as a “cool kickstarter.” In the same way that TOMS turned inexpensive, stylish shoes into a larger do-good movement, Good and Cheap is poised to become a cookbook that every food lover with a conscience will embrace.
Melissa d’Arabian, host of Food Network’s Ten Dollar Dinners and season 5 winner of The Next Food Network Star, makes good on the $10 promise of dinner for four in her debut cookbook.

For home cooks who care about what they feed their families and want to stretch their dollars, Melissa is the best guide for putting delicious meals on the table. She focuses on savvy budgeting, efficient shopping, and full-flavored cooking. Ten Dollar Dinners has 140 recipes and more than 100 creative, practical tips on great money-savers (“Clear-Your-Pantry Week”); inventive takes on old standby dinners (try her Moroccan Meatloaf); and how to get ingredients to last longer (keep your green onions in a glass of water and they will regrow several times over!). And with a coding system to help you create your own $10 menu, Ten Dollar Dinners celebrates spending with purpose, cooking with love, minimizing time spent in front of the stove, and savoring your homemade meal.

Melissa is a pro at creating satisfying meals that adults and kids alike will enjoy, using everyday ingredients and transforming them into delicious dinners. Her Potato-Bacon Torte (which, at 50 cents a serving, was one of her winning recipes on The Next Food Network Star) shows how basic and inexpensive supermarket ingredients can be turned into an amazingly satisfying dish. Her Roasted Vegetable Tian is a great way to take advantage of deals in the produce aisle. The Four-Step Chicken Piccata offers a plan for getting food on the table in just minutes, using almost anything in the pantry.

Anyone can use this book—especially those who want to save money—and feel great about cooking sensibly for elevated, simple meals that are healthy family-pleasers.
