A Great Primer, 11 Nov 2003
It's a clearly laid out book: with one recipe per page, so there is none of that irritating flicking back and forth. The recipes themselves are very good and instructions are clear. The pictures are not only mouthwatering they illustrate presentation the home cook could actually achieve. Sometimes Indian cookbooks can be a bit daunting for novices because you're not sure how to put a whole meal together, but this one treats each dish as a separate entity, more or less in the Western manner. It is also nice to see wine recommendations. This excellent book has inspired me to cook more Indian food.
