Cooking Delights of The Maharajas - Exotic Dishes from the Princely House of Sailana
Digvijaya Singh

The word 'Maharaja' evokes an image that is both royal and exotic! And it is exactly this that is magnificently reflected in The Cooking Delights of the Maharajas. Written by Digvijaya Singh, the former ruler of Sailana - a small princely state in Madhya Pradesh - this book offers a wonderful range of exciting recipes that display his love for the culinary arts.

In this book, the Maharaja presents exotic recipes of bygone eras that were painstakingly collected from various sources such as the Nizams of Hyderabad and Kashmir and the Begum of Bhopal amongst others.

Apart from being an excellent chef, Digvijaya Singh was a multifaceted personality. He had a Masters degree from the Benaras Hindu University and many diverse interests which included shikar, birdwatching, classical music and painting. He enjoyed gardening and his cactus gardens are widely considered the largest and the best in Asia.

This book, now in its 14th edition, offers you a treasure trove of recipes with all the flavour and fervour of the culinary world of Sailana.

US $18 ISBN: 978-81-8462-026-9
