Indira Mukhopadhyay Releases "The Joy of Cooking" Indian Recipe e-book

Indira Mukhopadhyay - The Joy of CookingKolkata, Feb 17, 2013 (Washington Bangla Radio): Indira Mukhopadhyay (Mukherjee) has a degree in Organic Chemistry from Rajabazar Science College, Calcutta. She is now a home-maker and pursues her eclectic interests in writing, music and culinary arts.

Indira is the editor and publisher of the bi-annual web magazine Papyrus.

Recipes sourced from magazines and celebrity chefs are generally far too demanding in terms of esoteric ingredients and complex procedures.

In contrast, the 89 recipes described in The Joy of Cooking - Reflections of 89 Recipes can easily be prepared in a non-metro kitchen with a minimum of fuss. Moreover, mothers will be relieved to find that quite a few of these dishes will be loved by kids of the fast-food generation as well as being healthy.

Indira dedicates the book to her mother, Smt. Krishna Bandyopadhyay, from whom she inherited most of the recipes. "This book is a short record of my adventures in creativity on the cooking axis. Adventure is not always restricted to distant lands and exotic cultures. Even our well known Bengali cuisine when blended with foreign ideas can be a source of a gastronomic delight", she writes in her preface.
