It was the need for a flexible work life that led Singla to launch her company, Indian as Apple Pie (which includes a cookbook and a growing product line). Singla is on a quest to present the many nuances of Indian food—including the fact that, contrary to what you may think, there is no curry powder in Indian food. Authentic homestyle Indian food is much different than your favorite Indian restaurant. “Homestyle Indian food is clean, healthy, and simple to make. You need the right spices to make it authentic,” she said. To help bring her mission to the masses, Singla is in negotiations with WTTW to launch a show in 2017.
