Absolute Andhra

Regular price $29.99

A one-of-a-kind coffee table book that is filled with over 75 tried and tested recipes for pickles, podis and pachadis from Andhra Pradesh. Stunning food photography along with original art created for the book, makes this a book you want to put on your coffee table! A special centerfold from renowned artist Padma Shree Thota Tharini takes the reader into a traditional courtyard of an Andhra house via an illustration that shows red chilies, okras, herbs, and traditional kitchen tools.

India Currents says:

In their latest cookbook, Absolute Andhra, authors Anu Chitrapu and Nirmala Garimella have embodied the bold, spicy, and tangy essence that defines Andhra cuisine as an ode to their mothers, Satyavathi Chitrapu and Vanka Subbalakshmi. The book is beautiful, full of illustrations that are a visual feast; I have it displayed in my home as a coffee table book. Almost everyone is drawn to the center illustration specifically commissioned for the book, The Courtyard by Padma Shri Thota Tharani.Read the full review from India Currents:
