More than a year back, celebrated chef-restaurateur Ritu Dalmia served a hearty — and refreshing —volume of simple Italian dishes that can be cooked readily inside Indian kitchens, in the form of

Italian Khana

. Now, she has spread out the meal over four sumptuous courses, with the

Italian Khana Mini recipe

books.



These pocket-sized editions have virtually the same recipes as the first book, but with an extra ‘attraction’ — a hindi translation of each recipe. Each handy volume offers easy-to-cook dishes with an emphasis on fresh ingredients, with each recipe explained simply, making either or all of the books a must-buy for novices and young cooks. But for a more intimate and wholesome experience of Italian food, we suggest you opt for the author’s first book; these are merely appetisers.
