This review is from: India's Vegetarian Cooking (Paperback)
I've become quite a fan of Indian vegetarian food over the past few years (low salt content is a definite attraction now that I've succumbed to yet another affliction of middle age) and now have quite a few Indian cook books, including Dakshin: Vegetarian Cuisine from South India, Prashad Cookbook: Indian Vegetarian Cooking, Hansa's Indian Vegetarian Cookbook: Popular Recipes from Hansa's Gujarati Restaurant and Anjum's Indian Vegetarian Feast. But this book is the one I come back to time and again. I've worked my way through quite a few of the recipes and, I have to say, I've only come across one or two I wasn't mad about. (Luckily, there's an excellent Asian supermarket here in Dublin so I haven't had a problem sourcing the many unusual ingredients.)
Why only four stars? Well, I agree with another reviewer here that there aren't enough pictures: it's good to have an appetising image to spark your interest and to give you an idea of what you're aiming for (even if you do end up quite wide of the mark sometimes). Other than that, I can't really fault it.
