In India Express, Rukmini hones in on her culinary heritage to create a set of 75 recipes inspired by the vibrant flavours of South India and Bengal. As you’d expect from the queen of the fuss-free midweek meal, the dishes are simple, accessible and full of flavour, spanning one-tin curries, one-pan suppers, easy rice dishes, simple snacks and much more.
