I tend to put Mr Todiwala on a pedestal, so in some ways he can do no wrong.
It works well as a biography/coffee table book as I am fascinated by his knowledge and life and have enjoyed another of his cookbooks.
I am surprised by the recipes though, I was brought up in the UK and am only familiar with the food from my mothers small village by the Arabian Sea in Gujarat so I was looking forward to authentic Bombay Street Food recipes, I would have like to have seen recipes for Bhel Puri and Pav Bhaji etc and would have loved to have seen recipes of food I was never allowed to eat in India! in case they made us ill.
Some recipes I am familiar with or have a different twist to what I am used to, so that's really interesting and others seem too simple to be true...e.g. Chicken Tikka, having said that, I haven't cooked it yet. love the recipe for Dhansak, makes me very homesick for my mothers version which is a similar recipe. Love the explanation about Onion Bhajis.
On balance I would really recommend this book, the recipes are more authentic than the food you would eat in a Traditional Indian Restaurant and it's like going on a tour of Bombay with Mr Todiwala. Looking forward to cooking everthing unfamiliar to me : )
