I've tried about 16 of the recipes and they have all been
delicious.The tandoori chicken in a butter sauce is fantastic for a dinner party ; the vegetable dishes are great
and the naan bread is awesome.You don't need any fancy equipment to make these things either. The instructions are dead easy to follow and the accompanying information about the dishes is very interesting.
Found it on Amazon, and it was in fabulous condition, nearly as good as new so for the price I am very pleased
Will use again if needed.
Indian cookery is not simple, one must be forwarned about this. It will take you a lot of time to cook most of these dishes, especially the meat ones.
However, there is not one recipe that i tried and wasn't extremely tasty and rich in flavour. From simple, light dishes, to festive birianis (try it, it is superb), to whole legs of lamb marinated and mellowed for one day, everything here is sure to impress.
Follow closely her recipe for cooking simple basmati rice. it works perfectly and will cook you the best basmati you've eaten, exactly as it should be.
Her lamb dishes are exquisite. i would suggest following her instructions in the beginning of the book and not use boned meat, but leave the bones in. Sucking the sauce and the meat from the bones is a delight i wouldn't want to miss.
Buy fresh, good quality spices, this is essential. buy cumin seeds and coriander, and then grind them in the mortar and pestle instead of buying ready - ground spice mixes from supermarkets. I always went to the spice shops to buy all spices, even if it was far from my home.
Get this book. it far exceeds every other indian cuisine book i have ever seen.

I already had had a previous copy of this book which fell apart from being used so much. I love this book and have found it the best of all my curry recipe books.Published on 30 Dec. 2013 by Rosemarie Pitcher
