This is more than a vegetarian cookbook. It is a celebration of an extraordinary life and journey to achieve her dream - Hansa's Restaurant.

Over a period of 25 years Hansa has passionately perfected the art of producing mouth-watering authentic Gujarati vegetarian dishes that are full of flavour, a feast for the eyes and nourishment to the soul.

In the book, there are over 80 delicious recipes outlined in an easy to follow manner. The beautiful photographs show how the food should look and is particularly helpful as most of the dishes are genuinely unusual.

I have made some of the more popular dishes like: Hansa,s Delight - a very light potatoe and paneer starter, the beautiful Aubergine Palette, fragrant Jeera Rice and the Shrikand. Suggestions of how to put various dishes together to create a satisfying and healthy meal works well.

I love this book because it also encompasses the cultural aspects of the cuisine. In particularly, the philosophy of Ayurveda which says,"Let food be your medicine and the medicine be your food". This section provides a great insight on the healing properties of many of the ingredients used to prepare the food.

This book is an excellent tribute to a fantastic lady who has been awarded many accolades for her amazing culinary skills. It brings to life the true flavours and health benefits of Gujarati vegetarian cuisine to our kitchens.

Highly recommended.

Many of you may have had the pleasure of dining at Hansa's multiple award winning gujarati restaurant in Leeds, for the rest of us here is the next best thing - their own cookbook.

The book opens by first delving into the origins of Hansa's restaurant. It then takes a philosophical turn with a short rationalising on why Hindu's are vegetarian which then leads into a section exploring the concept of Tri-Dosha. This is an ayurvedic practice of combining three Dosha's (known as Vata, Pitta & Kapha) to help you identify which food combinations are best for you along with ideal quantities and optimum time you should eat.

Like many gujarti books a lot of the emphasis is on the gujarati specialities and individual snack like dishes such as Uttapam (a savoury pancake), Tikki or Patudi. There are of course mains included but these tend to be a lot drier than your usual sauce based curries. People with a passion for Indian food are often looking for new ideals and this book will not disappoint you.

I have been to Hansas restaurant several times and have always enjoyed the food and experience. I bought two copies of this book, one for myself and for my in-laws who are veggie.
I tried two recipes - the Channa and the Daal. I got to stage 3 of the Channa recipe and was frustrated to find out that tomato puree needed to be added. Not only did I not have any in the house but it did not even say how much needed to be added.

The Daal recipe also left me with a liquidised tin of tomatos with absolutely no idea where these needed to be used in the recipe. They are clearly stated in the ingredients but are nowhere to be found in the instructions to cook!

I couldn't be bothered trying anything else after this. It isn't up to the buyer to have to proofread the book they have bought to check for mistakes.

I emailed the author at her restaurant expressing my disappointment but asked for updated recipes for the two I had tried. Then I could also pass them on to my in-laws as I had bought the book as a Christmas present for them.

Alas...I am still waiting for a reply, but that was weeks ago.

Edit - I just checked reviews of the first cookery book by the author and it was the same! Some people just don't learn or don't care about what they are selling!
