We love this handy food processor for ease and convenience, making Indian cooking a breeze.

Here are our top 5 favourite uses in #NewIndianBasics:
1) Finely chopping onions for a curry (Arvinda’s pro tip!)
2) Processing smooth and fine chutneys
3) Shredding salad ingredients (for Gujarati-Style Sambharo, page 142)
4) Kneading dough for Indian flatbreads (Chapter 10)
5) Whipping cream (for Chai-Spiced Apple Buckwheat Pancakes with Maple Cream, page 84)

But wait, here’s yet another use! Instead of using a potato masher to finely mash the vegetables for our Pav Bhaji (page 93), place the cooked veggies in the food processor and purée. Indeed, a time saver and no arm workout needed.

Best wishes and good luck to everyone!
