ALMOST perfect cookery book,
This review is from: Easy Indian (Paperback)
While I mostly agree with the excellent reviews, I had one problem with this cook book. In several recipes I just found that the amounts of liquid do not match the amout of ingridients. E.g. SEafood Keralan soup for 4 people calls for 250ml of water plus 200ml of coconut milk - this is just 450 mls of liquid that will leave you with the prawns covered in a bit of sauce, very very far from a soupy consistence and very far from 4 portions of soup. On the contrary some currys call for up to 600 ml of water that left me with extremely soupy and tastelessly diluted consistence. Now I know that I need to be really careful when following instructions and always rely on my instincts rather than mililiters. And I really do not like this.
Well other option is just that I am doing something wrong, but while I am not experienced in cooking indian food, I am an overall good cook.
