The Best Indian Vegetarian Cookbook Ever,
By A Customer
This review is from: Lord Krishna's Cuisine: Art of Indian Vegetarian Cooking (Hardcover)
This really is an amazing book. Living in the Subcontinent, one does become a little wary of "outsiders" writing about Indian cooking. Moreover, the introduction to the cookbook is even more worrying as the author turns out to have been a disciple to a guru. Not the stuff that great cooking is made up off! However, once you get into the nitty gritty, this is an amazing book. The variations that Devi packs into this tome makes you think twice about vegetarian cookery as being dull in any sense of the word. The chapters are neatly grouped and the recipes do really work. They are both "authentic" and adventurous at the same time. The book is not easy going. My copy has no photographs and a few line drawings to get you going. The ingredients are easily available. Infinitely better than many other writers who are targetting a western vote.
