5.0 out of 5 stars Chicken Tikka Masala Not, 29 Jan 2009

This review is from: The Calcutta Kitchen (Hardcover)
This is not quite your usual indian cook book and don't expect any of your Friday night curry house faves here. What it does is give you an insight into the social and eating habits of West Bengals intellectual elite. They're middle class, not to showy and very bright. Colours are vivid and you get a taste of the sensory overload that awaits you in Kolkata. You know when you arrived that it is the real capital of India.

The recipes are easy to follow and have the natural colour of authentic indian food and not the radioactive stuff with cream we get here.
