you've been to India, maybe, and discovered how delicious the cooking really is. For real Indian food is full of sublety, not a bit like the hot and boringly obvious taste of curries in restaurants here.

If you are longing to recreate the delicious, subtle flavours... this is absolutely the best book to buy. It gives all the ingredients, (and it shows wonderful photos of the food) and here are the small dishes which other recipe books do not bother with.

Did you have Iddlis for breakfast? with coconut chutney? and sambhur? Then this is the book for you: it shows how to make these recipes - and I haven't yet found any other Indian cookery book which does. It has butter chicken, and all the delicious dishes you could want - all in a solid, clearly-printed, wonderfully produced book. Forget the Maddhur Jaffreys of this world, and all the rest of the titles, and go for the real thing.

Great value...Go on buy it!

I have tried 100's of recipies from dozens of cook books and then never tried most of them again (thanks to the horrible experience). With this book, I have made each and every recipie dozens of times already. It was a pleasent surprise when suddenly the recipies turned out to look quite like in the pictures and tasted quite like in authentic eateries in local corners in India. Every recipie in the book is a hit.

I am north indian and with this book i have discovered flavours and foods from all over india. The recipies are easy to follow, ingredients, easy to find even for people new to indian cusine. My wife who is a european has learned to cook authentic Indian food which beats home cooked food by our professional family cook in India.

anyone looking for a real indian cook book, with recipies that can be easily prepared in europe, this is the one.

I was suspicious of this book because it really doesn't look like an authentic Indian cookery book - it looks too modern and has fantastic photographs (most of the Indian cookery books I have I bought in India and they look a little bit old-fashioned, with really bad photography, if there are any photos at all). But my husband liked the look of it and bought it, and I am SO glad he did because everything I have cooked from it has been delicious, and just like the food you actually get in India ie. nothing like the food in Indian restaurants in Britain. Try the dals - they are fantastic! In fact, try everthing! I also recommend Camellia Punjab's 50 Greatest Indian Recipes if you want to cook good, real Indian food

This book is has a huge number of great Indian dishes, curries, breads, starters, chutneys, deserts and more, each well illustrated with mouth-watering photos! I'm very impressed with the number and quality of recipes, but there is virtually no background information on any of the dishes.

The Book arrived in good time and though I have not tried any recipes yet, it looks as if they are quite authentic.
