More than a recipe book, this is a wonderful source of information, reflecting the author's devotion to Indian vegetarian cuisine and its roots in the Hindu religion.
Merely opening the book is enough to bring an aura of calm to your kitchen. Following one of the hundreds of recipes will bring you useful information as well as clearly written instructions.
Don't be daunted by its cost. The book offers information to assure the cook uncertain about exotic ingredients and unusual methods and at nearly 800 pages, it will be a resource to use for years before you need to repeat a single recipe.
PS Try the Bubbly Lime Cooler (Khajur Gur Nimbu Jal) as a refreshing beverage to enhance your next Indian meal.
