In the Kalwa slum in Mumbai, India, where harsh conditions make it difficult for some children to study, an amazing group of women is working to make sure that kids go to school. Meet the Masala Mamas, 16 women who live in the Kalwa slum who are dedicating their lives to providing hot meals for kids in school. Every morning, they cook hundreds of meals – hot nutritious meals from fresh ingredients and aromatic spices. They cook with extra special love, care and dedication. Because their customers are the most important people in the world: children. These are their stories and their recipes. It is a cookbook like you’ve never seen before. It is about women, friendship, social change, Indian culture, and most of all love. All through food.
An incredibly informative and inspiring book. The Masala Mamas share their powerful life stories, their kitchen tips and techniques, as well as such wonderful recipes; I just can’t wait to start cooking.
Many themes run through the Masala Mamas Cookbook. One most important factor is about the powerful role of women in society and dedication towards their responsibilities. The book is not only a combination of various Indian recipes but also gives a homely feeling. All the ingredients used are natural and authentic. The recipes are nutritionally balanced. In short it is a bunch of beautifully crafted recipes that gives an insight into the Indian home kitchen. It is a remarkable book not only written skillfully but with a rare mix of loving attention and a deep sense of culinary art of an Indian woman.
