This is an excellent cook book but I have one or two reservations about Anjum Anand's approach.
She has always sought to modernise traditional Indian food, and her recipes are generally healthier and lighter than the ghee-drenched old-school. That is all good, but she also has a tendency to, in my opinion, go too far down the fusion route. There are recipes here involving puy lentils, cavolo nero, cannellini beans, quinoa, cheddar and halloumi cheese. In some instances what you get is a pinch of spice added to a very non-Indian recipe. The most extreme case here is a shepherds pie made with Quorn mince with cheesy mashed potato on top. Sound Indian to you? Me neither.
Anjum seems to think that because she is Indian, anything she makes will by definition be Indian food.
In my opinion, while this is a useful vegetarian cookbook full of tasty recipes, it is perhaps miss-named as an Indian Feast.
Where she does remain truer to the traditional though, there is much to enjoy. Lentils have always been her forte and the daals and dhansaks here continue that reputation admirably. I've also had great success with a couple of the biryanis.
