I own more than twenty Indian cookbooks, many of them purchased in India. Still this (together with M. Jaffrey's "Eastern Vegetarian cooking")is the one I keep coming back to. It is simple, the selection of dishes very well-chosen (after 5 long trips to the sub-continent, I am in a position to know )and the results guaranteed. Moreover, it is very beautiful to look at. If you are a serious vegetarian but do not belong to the Hare Krishna movement you may be bored by the repetitive introductions to the recipes (mercifully very short) and somewhat irritated by the fact that, according to the author , if you really can't be totally vegetarian, it is okay, provided you don' t eat cows. Why especially cows no, and poor sheep chicken or fish yes? The answer is that "Lord Krishna loved cows"!!! But do not let this deter you, you don't need to read the introduction more than once, and the ideas and guidelines about the spirituality of cooking are very good. After all,you don't have to be a Hindu to remember to clean your body and mind before entering the kitchen, and infuse your food offering to your loved ones with radiant, positive energy. The pictures are gorgeous too. I am looking forward to a new book from the same source, but sadly it is not coming...Note that all the recipes are what in India is called "pure vegetarian", i.e. no eggs, no onions, no garlic. Which is just as well for me, especially since they are so sublimely tasty nevertheless. Recommended: the vegetable kitchri (a split lentil and rice dish) and the samosas.

This is by far the best cookbook i have and i am not a Hare Krishna. I found the book in a local book shop bought it on impulse. I have tried most of the Dal recepies and found them very good and also very quick. I look forward to trying the others when i get the time.
The pictures are fantastic and everything so well thought out that i can't think of any way to improve it. A friend has recently borrowed the book because the desert section looked so good.
If i could only have one cook book ever this would be the one.

This is the real deal.

I'm a guy from South Africa and not particularly clued-up on vegetarian matters(trust me). We're practically reared on braais (BBQs),biltong and boerewors from birth.

Nevertheless I've come to accept that all-out meat eating does not in fact pass any reasonable, open and logical scrutiny with regards to an economics/nutrition/civilisation/animal welfare assessment.

So I figured I really needed something special to replace (...or at least partially replace) a lifelong love of all things meaty.

This book has delivered. The meals are so good that I frequently have to share my lunch at work - and I work in a UK investment management house with British, Indian and Australian colleagues.

If you want tasty, spicy veg chow that has literally been lovingly designed and refined by devotees of God over thousands of years then look no further.

Everyone will think you're lying (about having cooked the meals yourself) and/or have magical hidden cooking talents (which is closer to the truth than you might think...).

I've been using this book for years and lent it to someone. It was easier to get another copy from Amazon than ask for it back. (The lender uses it all the time so I said they could keep it!) The recipes are very simple but taste wonderful. I reccomend this book to everyone who cares about and respects all the living creatures on this planet.

I wanted this book to try out more recipies of the Hare Krsna's delicious foodstuffs. It did not let me down at all. good pictures, explanations etc. have tried a few now and has turned out really lovely. Almost of temple quality. Having the smaller recipie book 'the higher taste' I wanted more variety and visuals which this book provides. The cost is also very good compared to the newer temple cook books. Plenty to keep you going for a long time. Hare Krsna !
