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. With a guide to creating your own spice mixtures and a spice glossary, Bal's Spice Kitchen moves beyond delectable recipes and gives you the know-how to create your own spice kitchen.
