The team behind the world famous Vij's and Rangoli restaurants in Vancouver have an approachable follow-up to their award-winning, bestselling cookbook Vij's: Elegant and Inspired Indian Cuisine . The easily adaptable, versatile recipes in Vij's at Home are tailored for busy households like theirs. Meeru and Vikram share how to prepare flavorful vegetarian dishes that go from stove to plate in less than 45 minutes as well as easy Indian seafood, poultry and meat dishes that come together in 20 minutes then simmer while the home chef sits down with a glass of wine, or helps the kids with their homework. Interspersed throughout, the endearing couple share aspects of the home life of busy restaurateurs, who still manage to cook with their daughters, eat at the dining room table and throw parties for friends.

"It would be hard to imagine a warmer, more easygoing introduction to Indian cuisine in North America than the one put together by the Vancouver restaurateurs Meeru Dhalwala and Vikram Vij in their VIJ’S AT HOME: Relax, Honey. “Ours is a whimsical, loud and very social cuisine that practically begs for you to share it with as many people as possible,” the couple write. “Its aromas will go through your entire home, the floor of your apartment building or your entire neighborhood block. True, as it happens! The book is hardly encyclopedic or even authentic to anything other than Dhalwala and Vij’s heartfelt desire for families to eat together from the larder they use at their excellent restaurant on Vancouver’s West Side. But they will eat well for that: spicy cauliflower “steaks” with rice; mung beans in coconut curry; the restaurant’s justly celebrated fiery lamb “popsicles.” "
