It spans a vast array of baked goods, including traybakes, muffins, loaf cakes, brownies, cookies, crumbles, tarts, cobblers, bread and butter puddings. Notably, it features gluten-free, vegan, and diabetic-friendly options.
One standout recipe is Chingri Macher Malai, a dish with spiced prawns in coconut milk, exemplifying simplicity and taste. The book also includes easy weeknight stir-fry recipes and innovative ways to use straight-to-wok udon noodles. With over 900,000 copies sold since 2017, Iyer’s Roasting Tin series, including “The Sweet Roasting Tin” and “The Green Roasting Tin,” has become a favorite among booksellers and readers alike.
