Rice cookers are ideal for the way we cook today. They are versatile and convenient, with one-button operation and a conveniently small footprint on your kitchen counter--plus, they can be cleaned in a flash when you are done cooking. Rice cookers make foolproof rice and beans, of course; but, as Beth Hensperger shows in this collection of the 100 best recipes from her earlier Ultimate Rice Cooker Cookbook, they cook a whole lot more than you might have thought.
Here are all sorts of grains beyond rice, including quinoa, millet, and couscous, as well as all the popular pulses and legumes. In these pages, you will also find custards, hot cereals, and puddings, which, it turns out, cook up like a dream in the rice cooker. For substantial meals, there are a host of tasty and easy-to-make risottos, pilafs, chilis, stews, and soups, some with meats and some vegetarian.
Unlike the earlier book, this new book has beautiful color photos to inspire you, as you make a heartwarming Sweet Brown Rice with Curry, Carrots, and Raisins; a zippy Fiery Pineapple Rice with Cashews and Cilantro; or a comforting Millet, Squash, and Sweet Pea Pilaf. Never has such a humble and simple-to-use kitchen appliance seemed so powerful and full of promise.

This cookbook is as colorful as the Indian culture itself and offers a variety of basic Indian recipes: from spicy dals and exotic curries to delicious tandoories. Food blogger Sandra Salmandjee presents more than sixty authentic Indian dishes that take you on a culinary journey through the Indian subcontinent. Numerous recipes with meat and fish, rice and lentils, as well as different kinds of vegetables will add just the right portion of spice onto your plate.
The first couple of chapters present a short introduction to all the utensils and ingredients you will need. When taking your first steps in Indian cooking, there are a few recipes that should be mastered. Rice is of course the cornerstone of any Indian feast. After quickly learning the baby steps, you are ready for the spices. According to the author, anywhere between two and five spices are often used in one dish. From curry, garlic, and ginger pastes, to paneer cheese, you will find each creation clearly described. Comparing an Indian meal with a Western one is difficult, as the concept of starter-main-dessert does not really exist in India. Hence, the futher chapters deal with snacking, meat and fish, rice and lentils, vegetarian dishes and desserts and drinks. Whether it is lamb kebabs with ginger and cilantro you are after, or a potato, cauliflower, and pea curry, there is something for every taste and occasion. With easy to follow steps and enticing photos, this beautiful book is perfect for anyone yearning for a gourmet journey to discover the very best Indian recipes.
