I really enjoy Indian food, but this book has never really tickled my fancy. It has quite a few recipes, 70 of which can be made in half an hour or less; but I prefer a cookbook by ?Women?s Weekly? that covers the same cuisine. Some of the recipes are just too americanized - garlic masala omelet? - for my taste, but judging by its popularity - now in its 10th printing - this book does make reasonable Indian food possible for home cooks wanting to expand their range. For someone new to Indian cooking, it does have one excellent feature - clear english translations of popular dishes. ?Saag bhaji? can look intimidating on the menu at an Indian restaurant, but when you know it is simply ?spinach with ginger and green chilies? it is easier to choose. An acceptable book for a home kitchen.


one of the best cookbooks

I love this cookbook. Every recipe is successful and delicious, and you can swap different varieties of meat/fish into the sauces; still delicious. It's the cookbook I give most often as a present. Sublime cabbage with fennel and cumin. Scrumptious fish curries. Great quick curry with hardboiled eggs. The fresh red chutney with almonds is good on everything. Or just eat it plain.
