On this special bonus episode, Julia shares the recording of her live interview with the cookbook author Priya Krishna in celebration of her new book Indian-ish which she coauthored with her mother, Ritu Krishna.
Indian-ish is Priya’s loving tribute to her mom’s “Indian-ish” cooking—a trove of one-of-a-kind Indian-American hybrids that are easy to make, clever, practical, and packed with flavor. Think Roti Pizza, Tomato Rice with Crispy Cheddar andWhole Roasted Cauliflower with Green Pea Chutney.
Priya’s mom, Ritu, taught herself to cook after moving to the U.S. while also working as a software programmer—her recipes merge the Indian flavors of her childhood with her global travels and inspiration from cooking shows as well as her kids’ requests for American favorites like spaghetti and PB&Js.
The book is not just a collection of well-tested, approachable recipes, it’s also so much about taking pride in where and who you come from.
