Description from the publisher:
"Cooking has always been a joy for me and the recipes presented in this book are traditional family fare, simple yet diverse cuisines, and as such cannot be classified under one heading.
A lifetime of travel, different experiences in different countries, and a zest for finding new tastes has made this compilation possible. I have also experimented with the recipes here which often were found in other cookbooks, I hope that these recipes will continue to be enhanced and reconstructed, in turn, leading to more satisfying culinary experiences.
Simplicity is the key to good cooking. No matter how good you are at creating different dishes from scratch, the humble 'Aloo Ghosht' or 'Nahari' simmered long under a tight-fitting lid before being laid on the family table will always give most pleasure when the lid is removed and the distinct aroma filters and the mouths start watering." - Salma Chundrigar
"Salma is an excellent cook. The food she makes is scrumptious. She feeds us with a rich variety of mouthwatering eatables. She is an expert on local and Indian food. I always look forward to a delicious meal at her place." û Iftikhar Soomro
"I recollect with great pleasure the many occasions I have had to enjoy the excellent food at Salma's house at Karachi and Nathiagali. I am happy that she has decided to share this expertise with everyone, in the book under print." û Ismail Gulgee
"Salma's special magic is the magic of transformation! Old Pakistani favorites are recreated with a special touch. My favorite was the 'channay ka halva'. I nibbled gingerly at the halva in front of me, expecting to find the usual taste. I ended up refusing to share the remainder with any one else!" û Dr. Faridon Setna
"I have relished the dishes prepared by Salma Chundrigar for the last 40 years and always remember them with great pleasure." û Aziz M. Munshi
