A recipe for Lentil & Sprout Relish from Chef Hari Nayak's new book, the The Cafe Spice Cookbook.
Also a worldwide giveaway of 2 copies of the cookbook! 
eople who know me well know I like to read, and a cosy comfortable corner, a good book, a steaming hot cup of tea (even better if it's masala chai) is one of my ideas of heaven. Thrown in some rains outside and some crisp, savoury eats and I couldn't really ask for more.
