Why the Nita Mehta Recipes Are Helpful

When you've come home tired from work and the kids are driving you mad because they're hungry, let "Jhatpat Khaana" come to your rescue!

"Jhatpat Khaana" has recipes for vegetarian food ranging from soups and snacks to desserts and meals. Learn how to make dishes like Cheese Pockets, Chana Biryani (chickpea biryani) and Quick Tiramisu.
"Jhatpat Khaana" is food that can be made in minutes! Even better for cooks-on-the-run is that the recipe guide contains a section on food made from leftovers, allowing you to completely maximize the meals featured.
Disadvantages of Jhatpat Khaana
While the cookbook contains a number of easy recipes, it does have a notable drawback: "Jhatpat Khaana" does not contain many pictures. If you're familiar with Indian food and know what the featured cuisine should look like, this might not be a problem for you.
If you're new to Indian cuisine and new to cooking generally, additional photographs would likely have come in handy.
Another disadvantage of the book is that it only contains vegetarian recipes. If you're looking for broader cuisine options, this might not be the book for you.
