Raaga Chef Paddy Rawal offers a Mystical Culinary Journey Through India in His Second Cookbook: Curry, Korma & Kebab

SANTA FE, New Mexico, June 21, 2016

Executive Chef and owner of Raaga/Modern Indian Cuisine in Santa Fe, is releasing Curry, Korma & Kebab, A Culinary Journey of India. This, his second cookbook, is a celebration of the best in Indian cooking featuring recipes that are
not the usual restaurant fare. These delicacies, though exotic, are easy to make and are a veritable home cook’s delight.

The art of Indian cooking is looked upon as providing a greater enjoyment of life, an aesthetic awareness as well as a material one. Indian cooking is a science and an art, highly vivid and appealing to the senses. The colors, flavors, and aromas make it a brilliant, even enchanting, cuisine. The blending of spices, herbs and seasonings with a single protein is mesmerizing and accounts for its outstanding and unique character. More than just a cookbook, Curry, Korma & Kebab is also a culinary journal. The recipes are an adventure into 20 cities in the four regions of India, many off the beaten track, offering a rare glimpse into areas worth exploring even if only from our kitchens.

Curry, Korma & Kebab is a 272 page hardcover publication with 250 recipes, and over 100 delectable color photographs. It arrives July 15, and will be available exclusively at Raaga for guests, patrons and the community of Santa Fe for $33.

"Dear Raaga,
We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Raaga for being selected as one of the 2012 Best New Restaurants in America by Kunda Eats ( Of the tens of thousands of new restaurants that opened last year, only 204 restaurants (throughout the country) were chosen for our inaugural list. I have attached the related press release for your convenience." - Sincerely, - MV Kunda

"(Raaga's) dishes have an unusually crisp presence and brightness of flavor that is too often lost in the thick sauces of many Indian restaurants."
Zane Fischer, Santa Fe Reporter

"We've lived and traveled all over southeast Asia. Indian food is our favorite and we are excited to have 'the real deal' right here in Santa Fe. His food is fresh and flavorful. Paddy's attention to detail and sincere customer service is refreshing. We're thrilled!"
P. H.

"Everything you eat, you think is the best until you get to the next dish."

"What a sophisticated and imaginative addition to cuisine in Santa Fe! Distinct flavors are blended so delicately."

"This is the best East Indian restaurant in Santa Fe; probably in all of New Mexico for that matter. The food is superb!"

"Paddy went out of his way to work with my allergy-elimination diet. Everything I ate was an explosion of exotic flavors and believe me it's challenging to cook for me these days."
