Upas or fasting, is an integral part of everyday life in India. From north to south, east to west, the variations and traditions governing fasting foods is vast. Dictated by region, availability of ingredients, as well as time-honoured customs, the fasting foods of India present an entire compendium of possibilities. While most us consider fasting food to be a mundane affair, the recipes in this book cast an altogether different light on those meals. The recipes are meant for the average cook who is restricted by the choice of food for the family on fasting days. This beautifully illustrated and presented book, presents a wide variety of dishes that can be easily cooked with a little imagination. The measures are accurate and the methodology simple and precise. There are also recipes meant purely for gourmets who believe in making every fast a delight. There is something for everyone.
