Best Indian Cookery Book,
This review is from: Madhur Jaffrey's Indian Cookery (Paperback)
Like the other reviewers, our copy of this book looks disgusting - all the page corners are bent over, many pages are besplattered with turmeric and other remnants of dishes made, and its grown to about double its original thickness.
It's superb and 95% of the dishes have been wonderful. We repeat them time and again. It uses a certain set of easy-to-get spices and, once you have them all, you can just about make anything in the book. You need a bit of time for preparation but the results are great. Our favourites are too many to mention but special places in our hearts and stomachs are: lamb rogan josh, chicken with tomatoes, royal beef, chickpeas, black-eyed beans, and potatoes with sesame seeds.
One word of warning: Madhur tends to be a bit heavy on the use of salt - would recommend halving the amounts she uses.
