  • Description

    Backpacking through the country, young chef Saransh Goila sets off on a culinary trail through India, where in he discovers the various nuances of local cuisine. From rural villages to barren deserts to freezing mountains, he unfolds the flavor of his destination by meeting local villagers or erstwhile royalty, picking up a tip or two to use in his kitchen. Wherever he goes, he makes sure to visit the famous eateries of that place. Through him, the reader can vividly smell the spices and taste the dishes that are described. The recipes given also present ways on using locally found ingredients. From having steaming Murthal ke paranthes to savoring tasty street food in home town Delhi, from cooking on a boat in Varanasi to cooking dishes using a bamboo hollow in Assam, Goila does it all and presents his adventures in a lucid, flowing narrative peppered with humorous anecdotes.

    A must read for everyone who loves exploring India & Indian food

    The simplicity of the narration, seasoned well with sharing of the emotional highs and lows and the background stories of the places visited make it a joyful read. It is not just a recipe book but an experience on its own. There are about 50 recipes from 25 states that have been written keeping in mind to share the terms in Hindi along with the English names, in an easy to follow format.

    The narration is interesting and the travelogue captures the beautiful landscapes & food memories built w...

    Good mix of travel and food stories.

    Nice fun read. If you are looking for a good mix of travel stories and food, you will like the book. Saransh's recipes are experimental, easy to whip up and accessible in terms of the ingredients used etc. The traditional, regional foods that he talks about may not have the recipes mentioned, but they at least give you a starting point to look for recipes on the internet. Overall, nice honest book.

    Must read for a food lover, maker and savourer.

    A dream each one of us had, we still have- to undertake a pan-India journey and top it with tasting delicacies from every corner of the country. Saransh lived this dream. The book starts with a foreword from India's legendary chef Sanjeev Kapoor and then a short prologue by Saransh himself explaining how he happened to bump into this golden oppurtunity of travelling around India. He then goes on to narrate his epic journey of 100 days- One day at a time. Various recipes are also mentioned wit...

    Travelogue from a budding Chef's heart

    It is a fairly easy read and can be read in one sitting. I like how Saransh has described some unique experiences, eg. his visit to the sacred kitchen of The Golden Temple in Amritsar and serving langar as 'Seva', his experience of having food on the go - literally in the middle of the road with the truckers of North India, and many more such wonderful travel nuggets.
    All in all I felt the book, was not from a thorough writer (riddled with some grammar errors and typos) but from a traveller ...

    A good amalgamation of culinary & travel

    “INDIA ON MY PLATTER” is a book worth cherishing. It is a book which will be used by the ladies of our houses whenever they need to refer to some delicacy’s recipe and ingredients.
    It will also be referred whenever we need to look for few places worth visiting while going on a holiday to a particular place.
    It is more of a book for keeps, rather than just a single read. I especially loved the honesty with which every single thing has been mentioned. however, if you are not a foodie, this book...

    go for it.

    My first encounter with a travelogue and it couldn’t have been better than this. India on my Platter is not just fun but it’s lovely too. The book is like an daily journal of Chef Saransh Goila while he was touring India in 100 days for his show Roti, Rasta aur India to be aired on FoodFood channel.

    Chef Saransh Goila won the FoodFood Maha challenge in the year 2011 and was offered this show aftermath. Only a fool will reject such an awesome opportunity and Chef Saransh Goila is no fool....

    Delicious Read

    Chef Saransh Goila’s 20,000 KM journey in search of good food throughout India is chronicled in India On My Platter. The book’s chief attraction is that it doubles up as a tour guide along with being a recipe book. The diversity of India has been beautifully brought about in this book which is an easy read. What is endearing is the small little details that the author provides. In one book you can get recipes of cooking Kashmiri to Malayali dishes. The information about eateries can come in v...

    For those who love travel and food

    The book India on my platter by Saransh Goila is for those who take that extra effort to reach out and experience the culinary varieties of India. The task to cover India and its richness in flavours - that too in 100 days was a pretty daunting task indeed. He has succeeded in bringing us some of the rare, lesser known snacks and dishes from the interiors of the country. Being a Malayali, I couldn’t help but check out those pages dedicated to Kerala recipes. This is more of a cook book than a...
