Sanjeev Kapoor is the host of the longest-running, most popular food show in India. Which actually means the longest-running, most popular food show on the planet.
He has been a big influence on understanding the recipes and the techniques. Kapoor often takes a traditional approach but he makes it accessible. He also provides a counterpoint to some of the idiosyncrasies in my grandmother’s books.
He is adept at demonstrating how to cook street vendor food.
I have included some videos from his shows in some of the recipes. They are very good examples of some of the special techniques required. His recipe portal is almost a complete Indian cookery manual.
