5.0 out of 5 stars Culinary Wonder 17 April 2006
This is a great book - great in interest, in humanity, in production ... and in usefulness. It is interesting to see how indian recipes have been translated to match ingredients available in South Africa, and also to be encouraged to re-translate, as a result, into what is possible in Britain. I battled to get a copy chiefly because I wanted help in making "indian" styles of bread - but there is, of course, far more, magnificently illustrated and introduced with background notes. Even if you do not have the requisite army of sisters, cousins and aunts (aunts and grandmothers especially, I think) to work 24 hours at a time to produce meals for gatherings of 40, there are plenty of well categorised day to day recipes set out in good, workmanlike fashion. Expensive book here, perhaps, but I recommend it. Long live the womens' groups of South Africa!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Recipes Indian Pakistani and Memoni 31 May 2007
By Yaar
I love the recipes in this book. This book is written by the Indian minority of South Africa, many of them Memons, and hence the recipes are different from the usual Indian Pakistani recipes. I feel that most of these recipes call for a lot more 'turmeric' then needed so adjust it to taste or no more than 1/4 tsp. A very unique book.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've worn my old Indian Delights out! 13 Oct 2010
By Foody
I bought my first indian Delights as a young man in Johannesburg back in 1983.

Stunned to find some 25 years later the same book adorning a Sari Shop in the asian area of bolton. I enquired about the copy in her window & if i could buy it (for any price!) and she magically produced a new one from under the counter for a tenner!

Superb cookbook with fantastic advice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Indian Delights 30 July 2012
By Cec
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have alot of Asian/Indian recipe books. This is the best one I ever had. Its like none of the books I have purchased in the uk. They have so many more recipes and different to those seen in other cook books. The recipes are very simple to follow. Im not Asian and I find the recipes easy. I showed an Asian lady the book and she borrowed it to copy recipes. I had a difficult time getting the book back from her....An excellant recipe book
