East Indian Celebration: 30 Festive Recipes from Abby’s Plate
This cookbook features traditional festive recipes from Mumbai’s indigenous East Indian Christians, a wedding of Maharashtrian and Portuguese cuisine that has been handed down through the centuries. If you want to try mouth-watering spicy recipes from a culture that’s almost unheard of, look no further.
These are the recipes popularly made for the harvest festival called Augera, the church feast called Deolacha San, Christmas dinner, Easter lunch, and festive occasions such as weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, communions, and more.
Here are a few other locations where you can grab a copy of the East Indian Celebration book.
Easter with the Rebellos: East Indian Festive Lunch Menu
I’m an East Indian by ethnicity, but I’m not from Eastern India. Explaining that East Indians are actually Portuguese Christians from Mumbai in Western India ends up in rather long conversations.
But once my readers get to know our food, there are always questions about specific times of the year such as Easter, and what the best traditional options are. So here it is, a curated list of what we cook for Easter meals, all the way from snacks to desserts such as blanc mange and marzipan Easter eggs.
If you want our traditional East Indian recipes on hand, these books from the Abby's Plate Cookbook Series are perfect for you. Available online or in-store wherever books are sold, in most countries.

PS. There is a bit of overlap between Easter/Christmas and the Festive book since many of the recipes made are the same, so you might want to decide to pick just one from these.
The other upcoming books cater to different categories – offal, sweets, and everyday cooking.
