Chetna Makan is known for her unique recipes, which introduce colorful spices, aromatic herbs and other Indian ingredients into traditional Western baked favorites.

Whether it's a sponge cake with a cardamom and coffee filling; puff pastry bites filled with fenugreek paneer; a swirly bread rolled with citrusy coriander, mint and green mango chutney; or a steamed strawberry pudding flavoured with cinnamon, Chetna's Indian influences will transform your baking from the familiar to the exotic, from the ordinary to the extraordinary.

Discover rare but precious traditional bakes from India, as well as new spice-infused recipes. Delve into the history of Indian herbs and spices and learn how to match foods and flavors.

Baker & Taylor
Presents recipes featuring Indian spices, describing the flavor, uses, and author's personal experience with each spice, including saffron, star anise, coriander, and tamarind.

Every recipe in here sounds amazing! The photography is excellent- I wish there were photographs of every dish. All of these recipes are somewhat familiar, but with some twists in flavoring. Although I’m familiar with Chetna because of GBBO, this book isn’t all baked goods. And probably most helpful of all, the focus is on a handful of seasonings- each has a page highlighting its flavor, and listing the recipes in the book that feature it, which supports education/understanding spice profiles over memorizing recipes.
