5.0 out of 5 stars Dal-icious!, 30 Oct 2013
This review is from: The Dal Cookbook (Hardcover)
This book is an absolute must for lentil lovers. Dutta brings together a diverse range of recipes from different parts of India some deceptively simple to make like Bengali Masoor Dal others are more complex and involved like Dhokar Dalna. Many people are wary of lentils deeming them a dull and worthy ingredient but are probably unaware that many Indian staple snacks are made with them such as poppadums and dosa (for which she also provides recipes). Each recipe is prefaced with a brief introduction which gives them context. There's also a useful pictorial guide to the different types of lentils making them easy to recognise when you're buying them. This book has taken away my fear of cooking lentils and so far all the recipes I've tried have been a success with the family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally! A self-help book that's fun to read!, 1 July 2004
I don't usually read self-help books, because I perceive them to be dull and patronising. However, Damian Barr, author of Get It Together: Surviving Your Quarterlife Crisis has managed to write a self-help book that's not only instructive and helpful, but also a jolly good read. Barr writes with empathy and authority about the problems facing 20somethings today and his chatty informal style really carries you through the book. A must read for anyone in their twenties who feels they're not quite where they should be yet.
