Recently I purchased a copy of Modern Spice by Monica Bhide after reading a mini review at 101 cookbooks. I have now cooked a few recipes from this delightful cookbook and what a taste experience it was. I will be having more to say about this book in the future, but for now, I will note that it has many creative Indian-fusion style dishes for vegetarians and carnivores alike.
My first choice was this earthy and healthy beetroot salad with a creamy yogurt dressing. I served it with a Wild Mushroom and Paneer Pilaf which I will be sharing with my readers soon.
This is also my contribution to this month's No Croutons Required. I am the host this month and the challenge is to come up with a vegetarian soup or salad containing your favorite root vegetables. You have until the 20th of this month to submit your entry.
