I have visited India dozens of times and have been to many of its towns and cities - from Kolkata in the northeast, to Chennai in the southeast, from Delhi in the northwest, to Trivandrum in the southwest and many points in between - after all that, the one thing I feel qualified to say is that, unlike many of the other reviewers here, I cannot define what authentic Indian food is, as there is such enormous variety from region to region and even within each region.
Additionally, I have only very rarely tried street food, with most of my eating being in restaurants in four and five star hotels or in top line restaurants
Against this background, I feel that Rick gives a good idea of what Indian food can be and that each recipe should be taken as a basis, subject to modification to individual preferences.
Would recommend this book to anyone
Some reviewers have stated the heat in some dishes is to strong. If you've cooked Indian food for a while you quickly learn to modrate the heat to suit your taste.After a while you build up a resitance adn can chance a bit more. I have also made Aloo Gobi and Rogan Josh, both were superb.This book is a must have if you're seroius about experiencing Indian cuisine. Get the dvd also as it helps give you a flavour of where to start.
I am aware some people have complained about the ingredients being hard to find but every city has at least a few indian/asian stores where you can pick these items up very cheaply (in Glasgow, try Great Western Road or Woodlands Road): you need to learn to step out of your comfort zone and try somewhere other than Asda/Tesco/etc. The recipe instructions are easy to follow and the results have been very good so far.
My only complaint would be that, during the series Rick claims that most Indians eat mainly vegetarian food. I am a vegetarian (no meat, no fish) but this book is actually largely meat and fish recipes. I guess that this is to pander to the UK diet and, whilst I enjoyed reading about and looking at the other recipes, ultimately a large part of this book isn't much use to me.
