Product description


“Nearly 50 years after she moved to Wisconsin with her husband in 1971, [Alamelu has] built a nationwide audience for her recipes and approach in the kitchen. . . . Now, she’s published her seventh cookbook, Vegetarian Flavors with Alamelu: Wholesome, Indian Inspired, Plant-Based Recipes . . . Vairavan has cooked dinner at the James Beard House in New York, but most of all she loves hearing from home cooks and helping them to add vegetables to their meals. ”-- Kristine M. Kierzek, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

“Filled with South Indian and Indian-inspired dishes, the cookbook ensures your in-season vegetables are never boring. We especially enjoyed the soups, rice dishes and vegetable seasoning suggestions. (The dishes make flavorful sides even if you’re not vegetarian.) If you are not familiar with South Indian cuisine, Vairavan provides guidance for purchasing the necessary spices, flavorings and other ingredients at grocery stores and Indian markets.”--Edible Phoenix

“Ms. Vairavan showcases why specific names matter when a cuisine offers a wide variety of choices like kootu, korma and poriyal in this, her seventh cookbook. . . . Her recipes are easy to follow and short, and she did it to erase another distortion. ‘Indian cooking is not all laborious or difficult,’ she says.”-- Arthi Subramaniam, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Alamelu Vairavan is an enthusiastic advocate for preparing foods that are both tasty and healthy using spices and legumes.

Alamelu has published several cookbooks that have helped even novice cooks discover easy ways to prepare healthful foods with Indian flavors. If you think children have to be persuaded or tricked into eating more vegetables, try Alamleu's recipes. You may be in for a surprise! She believes even vegetable haters can be transformed to vegetable lovers with subtle enhancements using spices and legumes.

Alamelu's popular cooking TV shows titled, "Healthful Indian Flavors With Alamelu," produced by Milwaukee PBS, has been aired on Public Television in Wisconsin and in many parts of the United States on PBS CREATE since 2010. (Episodes can be seen via Alamelu's book titled, "Healthful Indian Flavors with Alamelu" (Hippocrene Books, NY, Nov. 2016) includes most and the best of the recipes featured in her PBS TV series. Her most recent book, "Vegetarian Recipes with Alamelu" (Hippocrene Books, NY, Nov. 2020) features Alamelu's best vegetarian recipes from her TV shows, her previous books and many new recipes.

In her cookbooks and TV shows, Alamelu emphasizes easy to prepare, aromatic and flavorful foods. The Los Angeles Times, for example, has referred to her recipes as, "coconut-infused curries, brilliant vegetable dishes", and has noted "what could be complex becomes relatively simple in Vairavan's approach."

In 2009, Alamelu presented a sold-out workshop, titled, "Enticing Indian Flavors" at the James Beard Foundation, in New York for which she received recognition of "outstanding contribution". Alamelu has also been featured as a celebrity chef at the Annual Kohler Food & Wine event in Kohler, Wisconsin and in Dine and Wine Wisconsin events in Milwaukee. She has also made culinary presentations in Scottsdale, AZ and in Chicago, Ill.

Alamelu has offered wellness and team-building programs to many corporations. She has trained chefs to offer healthful options in restaurants and in company cafeterias. She also makes time for numerous community programs in schools, libraries, hospital outreach programs and in community centers, and for fundraising events.

Besides authoring several books, Alamelu has also contributed recipes to the book, "Healing Spices" by Dr. Bharat Aggarwal (a cancer research scientist formerly at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Care Center) that was published in 2011. Her contributions have also been featured in "Cooking Healthy Across America", an American Dietetic Association cookbook (John Wiley, 2005).
