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. Deepa made anew seventy slow carb recipes, incorporating time-saving Western cooking techniques, breaking-news research on gut health and weight loss, and Ayurvedic wisdoms ("When diet is right, medicine is of no need; and when diet is wrong, medicine is of no use."). After six months of cooking and eating "New Indian," Deepa lost twenty pounds and freed her husband from a ten-year routine of insulin shots.

Part cookbook and memoir, Deepa's Secrets introduces breakthrough slow carb and gut-healing recipes that are simple and nutrient-packed, without sacrificing its rich South Asian flavors. On a mission to demystify and make healthy an "exotic" cuisine, Deepa shares shortcuts and techniques that will make "New Indian" everyday fare. Bold and intimate, Deepa's Secrets will undoubtedly change your cooking, and quite possibly your life, featuring East-to-West recipes such as:

* Ralph's Garlicky Spinach a la Dal
* Ammachi's Claypot Fish Molee
* General Joseph's Five-Star Chicken Batons
* New Indian Cacciatore
* Masala Omelet
