“Indian-ish,” from author Priya Krishna and her mother Ruti, is the definition of an American cookbook. It chronicles the easy-to-make recipes of Krishna’s upbringing as the Texas-born daughter of Indian immigrants who fell in love with their adopted state and also traveled extensively. On this episode of Speaking Broadly, Krishna describes her mother’s seemingly superhuman ability to do it all, her parents’ sensible and successful arranged marriage, and her own journey of self-acceptance through embracing her unique family and food history.
