I do not mind what the cookbook looks like only the quality of the recipes. So many Indian cookbooks seems to skate over the surface of Indian food as they cannot include the huge variety within one book. This book covers its area perfectly. I have not been to Southern India for many years, however in the past I spent five months travelling through Southern India. These recipes evoke memories of my travels. This book it not just for vegetarians but for individuals who wish to experience Southern Indian cooking.When I was there I very rarely saw meat on a menu only the types of recipes in this book.
The explanation of the order of eating the dishes - I wish I had known about years ago.
