Aarti Sequeira, author of Aarti Paarti: An American Kitchen with an Indian Soul

AARTI PAARTI--An American Kitchen with an Indian Soul is Food Network personality Aarti Sequeira’s second cookbook, a collection of memories from her childhood all over the world and over 100 delicious and completely approachable recipes melding Indian flavors with the American dishes she’s grown to love.

Aarti is cosmopolitan – born a Christian in Mumbai, raised in Dubai where she went to a British school, schooled in the United States to become an American journalist – she quit her news job at CNN to focus on the important things in life: food for instance, which she regards  not only as nourishment but as a healing power, a lifeline, a tether to her family and cultural past.

After creating Aarti Paarti on You Tube in 2009, Aarti won Food Network’s Next Food Network Star in 2010 and went on to star in her own show, Aarti Paarti, which has aired for 3 seasons. She recently took a break to have her first child, but continues to host and star in a number of shows on the Cooking Channel, including Unique Eats, Taste in Translation, Iron Chef America Countdown, and Chopped.

AARTI PAARTI--An American Kitchen with an Indian Soul reflects the culinary melting pot that exists in California where she lives and in the world as seen through the prism of an Indian kitchen . The multi-cultural recipes include: Cornflake & Kaya French Toast, Real Deal Hummus, Mum's Everyday Dal, Quinoa Tabbouleh, Chickpea & Artichoke Masala, Tandoori Chicken, and Bombay Sloppy Joes.
