I've bought several so called Indian cook books that failed to deliver but this is not one of them. I'm definately going to be hunting out other books by the same author
I think this book is aimed to make Indian food more accesable to the English to make, rather than the curries etc that we are used to from takeaways. Her writing is fun and approachable and she goes through everything from starters, sauces, pudding, drinks.
I for one, will be buying other titles of hers and would urge people who like simple, easy Indian traditional cuisine without the fuss and expense of a takeawy to buy this book!
The recipe's are easy to do, easy to follow, and the ingrediants are easy to source (and I live in a little fishing village in Cornwall!).
She has a very good grip on the different regional food, and gives a two page spread to each region that helps you to understand the history of the food, and how to combine dishes for dinner parties.
She has an in depth explaination of cooking methods, (the first few pages MUST be read to cook the dishes as they need to be). She explains all of the spices, and often gives alternatives for hard to find ingrediants.
I have tried five different recipies after 2 weeks of having it, and every recipe makes me excited to cook more from her book. Here's a selection of the different recipes:
Red Goan Chicken
Green Chicken Biryani
Pilau Rice (lots of different types)
Goan Prawn Cake
Lamb Shank Korma
Cannellini Bean Curry
All of the ones I have cooked, have some spice - although she insists that if you don't like spicy food, you can take out the chilli - but the key to every recipe is the flavour.
These recipes are not what you get in Indian Take-Out - they are way better! If you like cooking, like proper food, and like Indian Food, this is the cookbook for you!
