"The best Indian food in Scotland" (Harden’s)
"...an Indian restaurant that stands head and shoulders above its competitors..." (Sunday Times)
"Star Rating 4½ out of 5" (The Sunday Herald, Scotland's biggest selling Sunday broadsheet)
"Great home-cooked curries. It's wise to book - it's a snug place with a big reputation, a limited menu and a sensational-value two course lunch" (Lonely Planet)
"After much sampling I found no place more delightful than Mother India in the West End. Take your pick of any of the specialities : king prawn cooked with lime and chilli pickle, lamb in a rich pepper sauce, cumin chicken, aloo saag. It's all here and it's all superb..." (Bon Appetit – America's Premier Food and Entertainment Magazine)

So I already like this book a lot and I'm very much looking forward to trying out the recipes for myself. But it's not a book that I want splattered with curry sauces. Which is why I can only give it four stars, even though I feel that's doing it a disservice. For me, it tries to do too many things in one volume. The book that gave me my start in learning to cook Indian food was Ali Aslam's Shish Mahal Cook Book. It's ring-bound, lives in my kitchen and, when it gets too worn out and splattered, I'll buy my third copy (fourth actually, the third one was for my son). But this book, however much I like the recipes, will be kept safe and clean in my bookcase. Which is no place for a recipe book.
This beautiful book is inspirational on a number of levels. Firstly, the intimate, highly readable story of Glaswegian Monir Mohamed`s rocky journey and crusade to bring `real` Punjabi food to the great British public. It is in turns candid and moving, at other points, laugh out loud funny!
The book is illustrated with stunning photographs of Monir, his family and dedicated team; his beloved Glasgow, and his now famous restaurants.
Throughout, there are easy to follow yummy recipes accompanied by mouthwatering photos. Monir has even helpfully included a section on stocking up with [easily available!] spices and kit to recreate his unique dishes at home. Not as daunting as you might think!
One thing is guaranteed...read this unusual book, and you will end up craving one of Monir`s curries!! My friend commented that this is the best book she has ever read on the subject of authentic Indian cookery. I have already tried out Monir`s mother`s special salmon recipe, and it was a roaring success. Can`t wait to do some more experiementing....
My attempts at Indian foods, pre hook ownership have improved markedly! Worth a go, if as I have found recipes clear and easy to follow!
