Dakshin  
Now available in paperback, Dakshin by Chandra Padmanabhan captures the delectable—and healthy—tastes of South India's exotic vegetarian cuisine in a volume filled with exquisite recipes and color photographs. Dakshin features more than 130 recipes, and with the accompanying glossary and meal planning sections, tantalizing Indian food is within reach of anyone looking for some culinary adventure.

  • chutneys and pickles
  • poriyals
  • rice dishes
  • kootus
