A new edition of an old book, the bestselling Illustrated Indian Cookery, revised and updated with new photographs and a larger format. The old version soon established itself as the best single volume guide to Indian cuisine, covering many recipes from the familiar Rogan Josh, Tandoori Chicken and Naan Bread to the more unusual Salmon Steamed with Mustard Seeds and Tomato and Drunken Orange Slices. There is also a huge amount of information about ingredients, equipment and specialist preparation techniques. Owners of this book's previous incarnation will not be able to resist replacing their old, presumably well-thumbed copies. Readers new to Indian cookery have a treat in store.

This book gives a great introduction to Indian cookery. If you've never cooked an Indian meal before (and pre-prepared sauces and pastes don't count) you should try it. The book gives highly prescriptive (use 3 peppercorns!) but easy to follow recipies for well known and less known dishes. The fool proof recipies are a great starting point for enjoying this type of cookery and provides a good foundation for personalising dishes to your own preference as you develop a good understanding of the wide range of Indian ingrediants.
I love this book, and between me and my best mate we tried out several recipes. The only down side is that it doesn't have many recipes...
It's got, starters, main, dessert, fish but a few of each. Also i would have preferred more pictures.
I bought the following fro amazon:

Publisher: BBC Books; 2nd Revised edition (7 Nov 2002)

And PEOPLE, they are the SAME book. EXACTLY the same recipes! Thank god my friend wanted it aswell. I couldn't be bothered with the hassle of sending one back. So be careful when ordering, or you'll pull a ME! :D
If you are a beginner get this book... But if you prefer to experiment and love cooking get her book that's called "the ultimate bible", it is FANDABATASTIC!
So when I finally decided to learn a little from some books, I was looking for a book with a good mix of authentic dishes.
And what a great book to have bought. If nothing else, this book has taught me how to cook decent chicken and chick peas. Dishes have ingredients found in normal shops, dont take 10 hrs to cook and really do taste well.
This book is definitely a great buy!
The only bad thing I would say, is in the quatities of ingredients given. For example, instead of saying 4 onions she says to use 50g of onion! Other than that, the recipes are thorough and produce some tasty dishes.
This is definately a 'must', if you're Indian, living away from home and want to recreate the dishes that your mother makes!
