"Turmeric Gold: Mana for the Body" was written by Kihei residents Amara Rochon and Sarojni Achari to inspire home cooks to learn to use India's ingredients and spices, which are known for their powerful healing properties.
Turmeric, a bright yellow-orange powder common in Indian curries, may pack more healing power than any other spice, said the authors. "And our low fat and easy to cook vegetable and meat dish recipes will also charm your taste buds," said Achari, whose native recipes are the inspiration for the book.
The cookbook includes traditional Indian recipes as well as many new ones. In her new recipes, coauthor Rochon endeavored to create a bridge between American ingredients and Indian spices for better health and exceptional flavor.
