Anupy Singla's first book, "The Indian Slow Cooker" is still the #1 Indian cookbook on Amazon after 2 years. Her new cook book, "Vegan Indian Cooking", is a unique guide to preparing traditional Indian recipes entirely out of vegan ingredients.

It features more than 50 recipes and use vegan alternatives to cream, butter and meat. Singla say there is a misconception when it comes to curry powder and Indian food. Curry powder is a key Indian spice, but is not a traditional Indian spice. Singla writes that curry is a blend that British folks who had spent time in India created to mimic the tastes of smells of Indian food. The word curry is used in India, but it is used generally to refer to a dish that has a broth, such as chicken curry.
