Achievable and authentic,
This review is from: The New Tastes of India: Over 100 Vibrant Vegetarian Recipes from Southern India (Paperback)
I admit from the outset that I am an avid cook book collector and cook. So,it is no suprise really that this was a 'must have' book for me despite the other dozen or so Indian cook books on my groaning bookshelves!
The recipes are well written and simple to follow, yeilding reliable and most enjoyable results.It makes a wonderful change to the anglocised Inidan cook books out there. This is real Indian food, not your usual take away offering.
Some of the ingrediants and equipemt might be a little tricky if you dont have local ethnic shops, but the hunt is well worth the end result.
My only criticism of this book is that there are not enough pictures! I know its wildly more expensive to publish with lots of pictures, but I would be happy to pay twice the price to have a picture for each recipe. Most of us would not know what the end results would look like, so not only are the pictures attractive and inspiring, but they are also such a good guide.
