Pride of place in my cookbook shelf
on 29 June 2014
I once read a newspaper article which said that on average people cook two recipes from each cookbook they buy. That doesn't surprise me, as I have books which I love to read and yet have never cooked from. But Anjum's Veggie feast is not one of those books. It's a book which is easy to use, and has an amazing wealth of recipes.
Even those books that I do cook from, it's very rare for more than one or two recipes to make it onto the list of things I make regularly, but every single thing I've cooked from this book has been good enough to make that grade. The goan egg balc'hao is the pinnacle of the recipes I've tried, but it's a close run race, with the pomegranate seasoned burgers, the peanut and sweetcorn masala, the Southern black pepper curry (which is done with soya in the book, but works amazingly with chicken for the omnivores out there), and the black-eyed bean and coconut curry are all serious contenders.
