Sanjeev Kapoor’s TV Dinners
Author: Sanjeev Kapoor
Publisher: Popular Prakashan
Price: Rs 275

In his latest book, television’s star chef focusses on a subject uncommon to Indian cooking parlance — TV dinners, also called microwave or frozen dinners. This very American concept refers to no-fuss, pre-cooked meals that one can dig into without spending much time or energy.

In short, if you are a couch potato, you needn’t miss your favourite show in order to fix a snack. Where Kapoor scores most is on the emphasis on nutritious, wholesome TV meals. The recipes in the book range from Missal Pav and Risotto Prima Vera to Shanghai Noodles and even Black Grape Pani Puri!

TV dinners rarely span the variety Kapoor has added. The book comes with large, glossy pictures to support each of the 47 recipes, making it as enjoyable and simple a read as the recipes themselves!
