Deepa's Secrets Mouthwatering, Slow-Carb New Indian Recipes Deepa Thomas, Robert Baron
A journey from old traditions to modern Indian cooking with deliciously simple and gut-healing recipes that leave you feeling fulfilled—rather than full.

Upon learning that rice and bread were the culprits for her husband’s Type 2 diabetes, Deepa Thomas deconstructed and reinvented her native Indian cuisine. She slow-carbonized family recipes, used Western cooking techniques, incorporated breaking-news research on gut health and weight loss, and drew from her grandfather’s Ayurvedic wisdoms ("When diet is right, medicine is of no need; and when diet is wrong, medicine is of no use."). After three months, Deepa lost twenty-five pounds and freed her husband from a ten-year-long routine of insulin shots.

Part Indian cookbook, diet guide, kitchen companion, and memoir, Deepa’s Secrets introduces breakthrough slow carb and gut-healing recipes that are simple and healthy without sacrificing their rich South Asian flavors. To demystify an “exotic” cuisine, Thomas provides step-by-step instructions with ingredient substitutions (all ghee-free!), shortcuts, and secret techniques that will make New Indian easy, everyday fare. Beautifully photographed with menu plans, kitchen wisdom, and scientific commentary, Deepa’s Secrets includes East-to-West recipes such as:

• Ralph’s Garlicky Spinach a la Dal
• Ammachi’s Claypot Fish Molee
• General Joseph’s Five Star Chicken Skewers
• New Indian Cacciatore
• Masala Omelet, and more!

Bold and intimate, Deepa’s Secrets shares Thomas’s new secrets—family cooking traditions, how to “diet” without feeling hungry, beating diabetes, and eating to live in order to live to eat.
