This book focuses on a wide range of vegetarian food, the styles of which cover the breadth of the continent.Ingredients and their accessibility in the west is explained.
This is the kind of book which anyone who has visited India who wants to create at home some of the versatility of its cuisine should have on their shelf. Furthermore it has many recipes which Vegans could use and thos who are intolerant to wheat.

I have enjoyed using this book & the results have been great with all of the recipies I've tried so far. There is a big section at the beginning of book about the Ingredients used in Indian cooking with great tips on where to find the spices & vegetables that are more difficult to find. The recipes are easy to follow (although some are complex, so make sure you read it all before starting) I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to improve their cooking repertoire.

Format: Paperback
This would be a great book, as explained in the other review, for anyone with a passion for home cooked Indian food. The recipes are very detailed and well explained. The start of the book gives a very good introduction to how Indian families prepare and cook food at home, and provides an exhaustive account of the ingredients used.

Unfortunately, I have not found any of the recipes particularly exciting, much of them focus on bean and lentil dishes. The majority of recipes require ingredients which you will only get in an Indian supermarket - even then you might struggle. I think the main problem is that there are no photographs of the food so none of the recipes have ever really drawn me in.

If you are trying to re-create that British Indian restaurant taste, this is not the book for you. If you have travelled round India and sampled the food, it's probably worth buying.
