Tis high season for Indian food — last fall’s “detox darling,” according to one Bon Appetit article, and a perennial cold-weather favorite (curry!). Perhaps no one demystifies the comforting cuisine better than British cookbook author Meera Sodha.
You might have seen her recipes for Sir Lankan Dal and Roasted Broccoli with Almonds and Cardamom in The New York Times, or stumbled across her Perfect Basmati Rice on Food52.
But what we’re excited about right now, just in time for cold and flu season, is her magical elixir to cure sore throats and banish the common cold. And that’s not the only health remedy she shared with us.
“Some of these might not get the seal of approval from the National Health Service, but they’re used on a regular basis in our home and other Indian homes,” Sodha warns in her latest ensemble of vegetarian recipes, Fresh India. We’ll take our chances.
