5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to follow 14 April 2011
Format:Hardcover
When I received this book I was just starting to experiment with cooking Indian food instead of getting takeaways. It has a lovely selection of recipies to choose between to make and each have a set of simple steps to follow which makes the dishes much less intimidating to attempt than in some other books I have tried recently.

The introduction is well written and the quick help guide that follows over the next 4 pages has some useful hints and tips. Most of the recipies are acompanied by a photo showing you what your dish should/might look like which makes it easier to decide what to cook when you go away from the dishes that are easily recogniseable from most UK takeaway menu's.

I found this to be a great help with learning how to cook some of our favourite meals and trying some of the new dishes I'd not heard of before was a fun and tasty experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great little book 24 Feb 2012
Format:Hardcover
A good selection of well presented recipes using easliy obtained ingredients. I'd recommend the "Fish Curry Cooked in Coconut" and the "Bengali Fish Curry". I was left a little confused though by the "Kashmiri Chicken Curry" on page 45, mainly because it's made with lamb!

5.0 out of 5 stars Home-stylee 29 May 2011
Format:Hardcover
I spent half of the noughties living in India, first in Delhi and then in Mumbai. Of course the food was fantastic, particularly that made at home by our succession of wonderful cooks. Back in England, most Indian restaurants became absolutely impossible, and even most of my Indian cook books yielded things that weren't quite right - either too curry house or too poncey. But this book is full of the food that I always ate in India, and I keep going back to it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous recipes...at a fabulous price. 7 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I saw this book at a reduced price and purchased it. What a little gem! The author is new (to me anyway), and I was initially worried that I might be wasting my hard earned money. My concerns soon melted asset because all of these recipes look divine. The layout and overall quality is fabulous and looks greasy on my Kindle.

I have rated this as four stars because there isn't a picture for each dish which I think is imperative in cook books. However, I purchased this for less than 3 and its worth every penny.

I look forward to seeing more from Manju.
