Format: Paperback
This is an excellent Cook-book focusing on the more traditional aspects of Indian cookery, as opposed to just curry dishes, which is where in my opinion many Indian cookbook's fall down. Madhur Jaffrey relates many of the fantastic recipes in this book to her own experiences growing up, learning to cook and preparing and serving these dishes to her family and friends. The recipes are comprehensive and easy to understand with additional information provided in most instances, as to the origins of the dish, how they were traditionally prepared and what food compliments the meal best. I would recommend this book to anyone who is already semi experienced in Indian cooking, who is looking to broaden their knowledge to encompass more exotic ingredients or less well known dishes. My only criticism is that there are not enough photographs of the completed dishes, to allow an easy reference for the reader, when deciding which sumptuous meal to create next.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes Indian food. The nearest Indian restaraunt is about an hour away from us so I wanted to learn how to make the stuff I missed here at home.
I've tried about 16 of the recipes and they have all been
delicious.The tandoori chicken in a butter sauce is fantastic for a dinner party ; the vegetable dishes are great
and the naan bread is awesome.You don't need any fancy equipment to make these things either. The instructions are dead easy to follow and the accompanying information about the dishes is very interesting.

As my title suggests, if ever you were only allowed to own one single Indian Cookery book then this should be it. Recipes are clear and easy to understand, impossible to go wrong and absolutely delicious. There is something for every pallet (spelling) and taste (providing you like Indian of course!). There is a wide variety of dishes based on fish, chicken, lamb, vegetables and rice dishes. There are also accompaniments and even a few deserts. I've tried nearly all the meat dishes and haven't been disappointed yet. I've bought plenty of other books since to expand my recipe selection but always come back to this one. The original and best.

Have had this book for many years. My son wanted to know how I made various dishes when he was a child so that he could make them for his family. So I got the book for him for Christmas. As it seems to be out of print I got a second hand one which is in good condition and arrived in plenty of time for Christmas. Thanks.

I wanted to buy this as a friend of mine cooked a meal from it.

Found it on Amazon, and it was in fabulous condition, nearly as good as new so for the price I am very pleased

Will use again if needed.

I already had had a previous copy of this book which fell apart from being used so much. I love this book and have found it the best of all my curry recipe books.
