Product Description

Amazon Review

One of the reasons for the great success of the television series Indian Food Made Easy is Anjum Anand’s clear and straightforward presentation, rendering these recipes manageable (or least convincing us that they are within our own particular range). There is also a commendable avoidance of gimmicks -- particularly welcome in an era when TV chefs feel obliged to adopt unusual or eccentric personae to grab attention. And it's particularly pleasing to note that all of these qualities are in evidence in this book of the series: straightforward, concise recipes (illustrated only with tempting pictures of the food itself, rather than the presenter striking various telegenic poses -- she is to be seen on the cover only, admittedly looking Nigella Lawson-like). And given that Indian food is noted more for its delicious taste than its healthy properties, Anjum Anand takes on the negative reputation that the cuisine has in this regard, and comes up with alternatives to the standard high-fat ingredients (that's not to say that she doesn't unashamedly tackle such things where necessary -- taste is definitely the overriding consideration in this book). And with such recipes as Mangalorean chicken (with its mouth-watering combination of coconut, coriander and large fat red chillies) and wild mushroom and pilaff -- all presented in the most accessible and uncomplicated fashion -- this book is likely to accelerate the already considerable acceptance of Indian cookery for non-Indian aspirants. --Barry Forshaw

5.0 out of 5 stars Healthier Indian Cooking Made Simple 14 Aug 2007
I love curries and have bought 2 or 3 curry recipe books already in my quest to be able to recreate a good take away curry in my own kitchen.

I've bought this book and tried 2 recipes already and have to say they're very close to the real thing. The recipes are simple to follow and use ingredients that you should be able to get in your supermarket. You don't need to be an expert cook to follow the recipes. The main bonus for me is that you know whats going in your meal and the recipes are healthier than what I suspect goes in a takeaway curry.

It isn't all curry though, plenty of starters, side dishes and other dishes. There are chapters on snacks, seafood, poultry, meat, vegetables, lentils and beans, rice and breads, chutney, desserts and drinks. I'd thoroughly recommend this book

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent update to an old favourite! 24 Sep 2007
I have a very old dog-eared copy of a BBC Madhur Jaffrey cookery book from years ago which I often use, but Anjum Anand's new book is an excellent modern day version, with more attention to eating healthily. There is less oil, for example, in most of her recipes.
The recipes themselves are well laid out, easy to follow and beautifully photographed, so you can appreciate what the end result should look like.
So far I have made the bengal gram curry, the avial, the chicken wraps, naan bread and a lamb curry and everything has been easy and delicious. We also drrank the strawberry lassi in the summer, which I much preferred to a smoothie.
I am lucky to live near Indian grocers, but there is a lot of information about how to buy unusual items over the internet and more details about these ingredients.
If you love Indian food and enjoy cooking I can thoroughly recommend this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to follow 23 Aug 2007
By Wendy
I love Indian food but find it quite hard to recreate at home. This book makes it easy! I have already made two recipes (much to my husband's delight) and think it makes Indian cooking really accessible to people who are novices with spices etc.
Love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautifully produced, passionate book 4 Feb 2008
A beautifully produced, passionate book

From the front cover flap:

'Indian Food Made Easy accompanies the BBC TV series in which Anjum Anand creates delicious Indian food that is light, healthy and bursting with flavour. Anjun is passionate about using fresh, local and seasonal produce, and all the ingredients are readily available in supermarkets. All Anjun's recipes are easy to follow and use simple cooking methods. Her dishes range from quick snacks to slow-cooked curries, and from breakfast dishes to easy midweek suppers.
All the recipes from the TV series and more are included in this book......and throughout there are tips and techniques to make cooking Indian food easy.
The book begins with guidance on using the various spices and advises you on the store-cupboard basics, while a useful glossary demystifies any unfamiliar ingredients.
If you have ever wanted to try cooking Indian food, this is the book for you.'

Personally, I have never been terribly confident in my ability with Indian cooking, but this book did inspire me to branch out in this direction.......and discipline myself into giving plenty of time for the marinade stage! I have to admit to first class success with the 'Succulent Chicken Tikka Wraps', 'Tandoori Lamb Wraps' and the divine and very delicate 'Potato and Pea Samosas', the latter being achieved by taking Anjum's advice to simplify and lighten the recipe by 'using shop-bought filo pastry!

160 high quality pages, spilt into main chapters:

1. Light Meals and Snacks
2. Chicken
3. Meat
4. Fish and Seafood
5. Vegetables

5.0 out of 5 stars Yummy Scrummy 7 Jan 2008
This book is wonderful. The recipes are fantastic and the taste of food is amazing.
I try and cook one recipe a week from this book for my husband and i. The Coconut Chicken recipe is our favourite. You put three different types of Coconut in it (dessicated, cream and milk) and you think to yourself whilst cooking it that it is going to be coconut and nothing else, but it isn't you get all different types of flavours it is wonderful.
When i have to reduce the numbers with the recipes i do not reduce the amount of sauce that i have to make and i do find i do not have to much sauce.
Also try the Lamb Burgers. I cook them all off and leave 2 for the next day. I always enjoy the two i have the next day far more than the others i had the previous night. So so tasty.
You would be a fool not to buy this book. The recipes are very easy. Still i was a chef for over 15 years but i do feel everyone will be able to do these recipes with one hand tied behind their backs.
Buy this book. Trust me....

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful 'can't go wrong' book 9 April 2012
I really am not the kind of person who often writes reviews but, having bought this book and experienced the wonderful world of cooking that has opened up to me, I felt compelled to write one! Every dish I have made from this book has been straightforward to make and have turned out to look and taste fantastic!!! So OK, some of the spices and ingredients used are not always available from local supermarkets but they are readily obtained from the suppliers listed in the back of the book so getting hold of them is no real biggie! As a result of my experiences so far I am now going to buy more of Anjum Anand's books and continue on my voyage of Indian discovery!
