10000+ Indian Recipes Book

When it comes to the comprehensiveness of a single resource for Indian recipes, few other apps can match 10000+ Indian Recipes Book. After all, Indian cuisine is very diverse, with each state of India having its own kind of unique cuisine, not to mention regional differences within states, as well!

On this app you will find Indian recipes neatly classified along various categories, including the following.

  • Regional cuisine – say, Punjabi, Bengali, Gujarati, Tamil, Marwari, and more.
  • Vegetarian and Non-vegetarian dishes.
  • The meal it is meant for – say, Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner, etc.
  • Specialised Indian recipes customised for diets like Atkins and Paleo, among others.

Each of the above categories also has various sub-categories, such as Chicken, Mutton, or Fish among Nonvegetarian dishes, etc. This makes searching for and quickly zeroing in on your preferred dish an absolute breeze.

Once you have done that, you will, in turn, find that the list of ingredients for each recipe is spelt out very clearly. In fact, the ingredients themselves form a search parameter on the app. Based on ingredients that you already have, you can search for Indian recipes that you can prepare. It’s definitely a cool feature!

Indian Recipes in Hindi

While the demand for Indian recipe apps on smartphones is always high, Indians in particular have clamoured for such apps to be available in native languages. Robin Khanna has clearly paid heed to this frequent request by offering Indian Recipes in Hindi.
