Pune, Maharashtra, India, 2016/03/01 - After selling more than 4500 copies of 30 Days of Daal, food blogger and author Pragati Bidkar releases Rice Bowl: Vegetarian Rice Recipes from India and the World.
Pune based food blogger Pragati Bidkar, author of the widely available Dinner Ideas Cookbook series, announces the release of her new book Rice Bowl: Vegetarian Rice Recipes from India and the World. Featuring 30 vegetarian (20+ vegan) rice recipes, and studded with beautiful food photos, Rice Bowl ebook is available worldwide at top book retailers such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Kobo and more.
Bidkar’s first book 30 Days of Daal has sold over 4500 copies worldwide in a couple of months. Rice Bowl has already raced up and is now on the Hot New Releases in the Asian and Indian Food categories.
Rice, the most consumed grain in the world is an essential part of the South Asian meal. Rice Bowl presents many ethnic and family recipes in a simple, step by step form, inviting home cooks the world over to sample home style Indian food. The author’s Less is More approach uses just enough spices and herbs to make every dish shine. New cooks will feel encouraged by the meticulous instructions and tips, and also the various alternatives to create each recipe.
Apart from the star dishes like Biryani, and a Fruit and Nut Rice Pilaf from the far North of India, Rice Bowl introduces family recipes from the author’s native region. These include Mixed Lentil Fritters with Rice, or the famous Vada Bhat, Indian Dumplings with Sweet & Sour Nectar or Gola Bhat, and Golden Spiced Rice, or Masalebhat, the star rice preparation of Maharashtra. Rice Bowl introduces Indian Street Food with the buttery Bombay Skillet Rice (cover feature) and the super hot Schezwan Fried Rice which is a mainstay of Indo-Chinese cuisine. Considering that most modern families don’t eat a single cuisine every day of the week, the book also offers other global rice recipes like a Thai Pineapple Fried Rice and a Vegan Jambalaya.
Rice Bowl is available at special launch pricing during release week, and the variety of formats and retailers make it accessible to everyone.
