The Hindi Bindi Club

Author : Monica Pradhan
Genre : Fiction - Drama
Picked by : Aparna

The book trails the lives of three Indian women who emigrated to the US years ago as either trailing spouses, or in the pursuit of higher education. The book intertwines their lives and their constant sentimental pangs to go "home" with the lives of their adult daughters, who grew up in the USA and face the inevitable culture shock of being Indian, but also of not being Indian, but rather American.

Recipes that the Book Inspired:
Ann makes Uma's Bengali Grilled Salmon. Also check out her review.
Aparna also picked a recipe by Uma and makes chocolate sandesh truffles, complete with a chocolate drizzle.
Aqua made Saroj's Punjabi samosas.
Janaki read the book but didn't get around to cooking from it.
Jaya makes Meenal's kheer.
Simran also gets inspired by Uma and makes chocolate sandesh truffles.
