If you love Indian food, you’re sure to love Summers Under The Tamarind Tree: Recipes and memories from Pakistan.  We selected this wonderful cookbook as our April 2017 featured book partly because it showcases a full-flavored cuisine with Arabic and Far East Asian influences on many dishes. Author Sumayya Usmani uses this contemporary Pakistani cookbook to celebrate the flavors and traditions of Pakistan that she learned from spending time in the kitchen with her mother and grandmother when she was growing up.

From the Author: “These aren’t your typical stuffed parathas: instead they’re more like Scottish tattie scones in which mashed potato is mixed with flour to make flat griddle scones, although these are much thinner. This recipe is quicker and easier than making stuffed parathas, but has the same comforting result.”

Summers Under The Tamarind Tree is the April 2017 selection for the World Spice Cookbook Club. Summers Under The Tamarind Tree is currently available for purchase online at www.amazon.com.

    What a delightful experience!
    Great with Chai (and Madhur Jaffrey’s Tomates Sucres as chutney)!
    Thank you, Sumayya Usmani, for sharing the recipe . . . . and Silkroaddiary / World Spice Merchants for drawing it to attention.

    Do you think a tortilla press would make these too flat? Just wondering . . .

      They were (and are) very delicious. I was thinking that a tortilla press would work great, just be careful how much pressure you apply. It would make them easier…
