A great book for Indian cookery enthusiasts,
This review is from: Prashad Cookbook: Indian Vegetarian Cooking (Hardcover)
I had the pleasure of sampling some of Kaushy's food at her cookery demo at Meat Free in Manchester in 2011, so I can assure you that it tastes every bit as good as it looks in this new book.
This is a perfect book for anybody who wants to learn how to cook good authentic Gujarati food. Here you will learn not only great recipes but also about some of the more exotic Indian ingredients such as patra, urad dhal and valor (hyacinth beans). The book is very narrative so you'll find lots of stories and explanations of the food. This is my opinion always takes a cookery book one step beyond just been a list of good recipes.
I thought the best tip you can take from this book though is Kaushy's four golden rules of cooking: always buy the freshest ingredients, prepare everything in advance, relax to enjoy your cooking and cook with love!
