Chicago (PRWEB) September 05, 2014
With over $15,500 raised and 11 days to go, Anupy Singla seeks to unwind the complexities of Indian cooking and reveal the healthy simplicity of the cuisine with her Kickstarter campaign. Together with Chicago-based company Indian As Apple Pie, Singla aims to raise $30,000 to make her new cooking show, Indian As Apple Pie TV, a reality.
Singla’s Kickstarter campaign is hosted on Seed Chicago, microlender Accion Chicago’s curated Kickstarter page, where she asks her thousands of avid followers to support Indian As Apple Pie TV. Seed Chicago highlights local, impactful small business and community development projects that create jobs and economic growth in Chicago’s neighborhoods.
Singla’s six-episode, 30-minute show will transport Americans to India with her years of travel and background in Indian culture and cuisine, adding to Indian As Apple Pie’s longstanding repertoire of Indian cooking tools for Americans.
“Confusion is what holds people back from cooking Indian food – the spices, the health misconceptions, the hard-to-pronounce names,” says Singla. “My goal is to fill the knowledge gaps and bring excitement and authentic simplicity to American kitchens.”
With traditional Indian spice blends, mouth-watering recipes and delicious cookbooks that have sold over 100,000 copies, Singla’s sole mission is to bring Indian cuisine to every home from New York City to El Paso. Singla, born in India and raised outside of Philadelphia, shows viewers Indian cuisine through the eyes of an Indian-American former broadcast journalist and mother of two daughters.
