Bal's Spice Kitchen

Featuring all-new recipes, Bal’s Spice Kitchen works on two simple principles: spice is the key to delicious cooking, and making flavourful crowd-pleasing meals doesn’t have to take a lot of time. Inspired by the traditional Indian recipes of her childhood, Bal Arneson has become a leader in fresh and fast Indian food. Now, in Bal’s Spice Kitchen, she honours that tradition of flavour by showing home chefs how to complement their favourite recipes with new spice combinations.


This book moves beyond traditional Indian recipes and uses Indian flavours in classic North American and European dishes. Tired of the same old Thanksgiving fare? Bal offers an entire section on how to add sizzle to Thanksgiving with Indian spices. Plus, wine pairings and fun plating techniques make this book perfect for entertaining.


With a guide to creating your own spice mixtures and a spice glossary, Bal’s Spice Kitchen is more than just a collection of delectable recipes; it gives you the know-how to create your own spice kitchen.

  • Spring Salmon with Coconut Okra Sauce and Cardamom Pesto
