Former Greenhill student, Priya Krishna’s new cookbook, Indian-ish, has a focus on the quick yet flavorful dishes her mother made after coming home from work.

With a mixture of her Texan, American and Indian culture, the cookbook contains a variety of recipes ranging from classic roti pizza to tasty spinach and feta cooked like saag paneer.

Krishna grew up in Dallas and attended Greenhill High School in Addison. Both her parents are immigrants from India who moved to the United States as soon as they married.

Additionally, the book has received a lot of praise since its launch in April. This was thanks to her expression of admiration and credit to the women who had to put the kitchen aside and focus on their careers, women like her mother.

Above all, Krishna tells Texas Monthly that her cookbook also tells a story, one of growing up as a second-generation immigrant kid.

Moreover, the recipes included are quick, nutritious, full of flavor, largely vegetarian, and the perfect guide to “everyday handy Indian food.”
