 Mother's Recipes is by Rachel Chacko, a 90 year old Indian mother and grandmother whose love for family is expressed through this unique collection of Indian recipes. These recipes have been tested and appreciated across generations of Indians. As the wife of an army officer, Rachel Chacko had the opportunity to travel across India and discover a wide variety of regional cuisines. Many Indian regional recipes were traditionally handed down from mother to daughter with few attempts made to document them. Mother's Recipes is an attempt to document such recipes. The collection includes many rare as well as popular recipes for starters, snacks, main courses, wines, pickles and desserts from communities and regions across India. Rachel Chacko provides useful background information on spices and seasonings as well as authentic and detailed preparation techniques. She has taken special care to present the recipes to today's daughters in an easy to prepare manner, given the modern day pressure on time. The book is also unique because it contains classic recipes from the Syrian Christian community in India - to which Rachel Chacko belongs - like Appam, Egg Roast and Green Gram Payasam which have tickled taste buds across India.

"A joy to cook from, and just as much fun to read." —Margaux Laskey, the New York Times

A witty and irresistible celebration of one very cool and boundary-breaking mom’s “Indian-ish” cooking—with accessible and innovative Indian-American recipes

Indian food is everyday food! This colorful, lively book is food writer Priya Krishna’s loving tribute to her mom’s “Indian-ish” cooking—a trove of one-of-a-kind Indian-American hybrids that are easy to make, clever, practical, and packed with flavor. Think Roti Pizza, Tomato Rice with Crispy Cheddar, Whole Roasted Cauliflower with Green Pea Chutney, and Malaysian Ramen.

Priya’s mom, Ritu, taught herself to cook after moving to the U.S. while also working as a software programmer—her unique creations merging the Indian flavors of her childhood with her global travels and inspiration from cooking shows as well as her kids’ requests for American favorites like spaghetti and PB&Js. The results are approachable and unfailingly delightful, like spiced, yogurt-filled sandwiches crusted with curry leaves, or “Indian Gatorade” (a thirst-quenching salty-sweet limeade)—including plenty of simple dinners you can whip up in minutes at the end of a long work day.

Throughout, Priya’s funny and relatable stories—punctuated with candid portraits and original illustrations by acclaimed Desi pop artist Maria Qamar (also known as Hatecopy)—will bring you up close and personal with the Krishna family and its many quirks.
