Format: Paperback
I initially borrowed this from the library and more or less immediately purchased it.

The book is divided into three sections. Firstly, at the beginning of the book is a group of chutney, pastes, breads and rice dishes. Then follow the main recipes, including a nice selection of starters, including a lovely recipe for potato and coriander fritters. Mains include familiar dishes (e.g. chicken jalfrezi, butter chicken, rogan josh), and some less common dishes (for example, Goan pork meatballs, white fish in tomato curry, tuna with pickling spices, spiced white fish cooked in coconut, halibut with green chillies and coriander). There is a good range of vegetarian recipes, lots of side dishes (such as smoked aubergine, spiced black-eyed beans, green beans with garlic and mustard seeds). There are also a few desserts and sweets to end the meal (gorgeous cardamom ice-cream among them).

Each recipe gets a page to itself, with a beautiful photo of the finished dish opposite. Preparation and cooking times are generally in the 35-45 minute range, occasionally a little longer, and of the recipes I have tried I would say the estimated times are about right. The recipes are very clearly set out and the ingredients are easily available at the supermarket. I am a pretty experienced cook and cook Indian food fairly regularly but this would be an excellent introduction for the inexperienced cook too.

One really brilliant feature is tucked away in the final section, Menus. This is a range of suggested menus for various occasions such as a mid-week dinner with the family, mid-week dinner with friends, a lunch box, even a romantic dinner.

Forget about ringing through an order to your local Indian takeaway! Pop in the CD of Indian music and get cooking for yourself . . . you owe it to your friends and family.

Yes, Easy Indian Cooking comes with its own CD of Indian music to get you into the right mood or to play as background music when you serve up your very own Indian meal.

There are not many of us who do not enjoy Indian food but who cooks their own Indian dishes? Most of us shy away either because we do not know where to start or because we think it is going to be too complicated and time consuming.

I have to tell you that with Manju Malhi's latest book Easy Indian Cooking nothing could be easier. As soon as you see the book you will realise that it has been put together for those who want to cook rather than just another pretty book for the kitchen shelves! It has been ring bound which means it opens flat onto your work surface . . . no more struggling with one hand on the book, trying to prevent the page turning, whilst trying to multi-task with the other!

I should add that, for all its practicality, it is still a beautifully presented book with great photography. We have come to expect high quality printing and photographs in our cooking books and this is no exception but what makes it stand out is that the pages have been thoughtfully put together with the reader in mind rather than just to make it look good. (It does still look good!)

The main section as you would expect is the recipes and each recipe takes up two pages. Open up any recipe and one page will be a photograph of the finished dish and how it should look when you serve it - something I find invaluable, especially when it comes to giving me confidence that I am doing things right!

This book offers the keen eater of Indian food a simple and straightforward way to produce, at home, what is usually sampled as a takeaway or in restaurant meal - very easy to follow recipes create great results and have the added benefit of being inexpensive to create. Good introduction to Indian cooking!

I saw Manju cooking one of her recipies, chicken jalfrezi, on Saturday Kitchen and after making the jalfrezi myself, I decided to get her Easy Indian Cookbook. The book is full of easy to follow and very tasty recipies. I love cooking and eating Indian food and this book certainly encouraged me to try different foods that I had never cooked before. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Indian food from a novice cook to an expert. Enjoy.

The title is not misleading, the recipes I have tried have been made quickly and with ease, on weekday nights when there isn't much time to experiment with food - but results have been delicious. There's also a section on recipe combinations to create the perfect romantic evening, dinner with friends, etc - which I haven't tried yet but will be soon! Basically - recommended.

I've always been keen on Indian cuisine but for some reason I was under the impression that it was complicated and time consuming. I could not have been more wrong. Manju Malhi's Easy Indian Cookbook is just that - easy!

I decided to re-create our usual take away dishes to see how they compare on taste and on price, and I was pleasantly surprised to discover that Manju's recipes delivered on both accounts. I made naans from scratch for the very first time and it was far easier than I had ever imagined and very authentic tasting - obviously having a tandoor oven would have made it that extra bit special, but these were good enough for me! Next up were the accompaniments - the most delicious mango chutney (far better than anything I've had in a restaurant), mint and yoghurt chutney with a kick and the deliciously refreshing tomato, onion and chilli salad.

For the main, I cooked a mouth wateringly tasty chicken jalfrezi - the restaurants usually make this a tad too spicy for my palate so I was able to adjust it accordingly, but the method was unbelievably simple - so much so I can't believe that I've never made it before and will certainly be making it again soon. The quick curry paste was astonishing - authentic, and quick isn't even the word - amazing! I followed the step by step instructions for turmeric rice which was cooked to perfection. It was a hit all round.

Lastly, for dessert, the cashew nut diamonds were simply delicious - just the right balance of nutty sweetness to finish off the meal. Perfect! I look forward to doing it all over again...
