Foreword by Suneeta Rao
Komala Sista Rao, a former singer and mother of pop singer and stage actress Suneeta Rao, presents a compilation of her family’s culinary legacy – well-chosen, delectable vegetarian Andhra home recipes.
The Andhra Cookbook breaks stereotypes of Andhra food being all about chillies or too spicy for most palates. Offering recipes with a depth of flavours and several ideas for novices and experts alike, this cookbook will encourage you to relish and experiment with Andhra cooking.
With a wide selection of vegetable curries, dals, stews and chutneys, this book provides a keen insight into the region’s cuisine. It can also serve as a well-organised guide that includes detailed explanations about preparation methods and suggested menus to understand how to combine dishes.
These recipes carry with them the creativity, labour and love of generations of women in the author’s family, finely crafted and perfected over the years.
