This is a nice basic collection of recipes and will keep Indian cooking fans going for a long time. Many of these are simple "everyday" recipes which are anything but boring. We tried several dishes and all of them were tasty and well written, without discernible errors. Whilst most of the ingredients will be found at any well stocked grocery store, some spices and vegetables will be more easily sourced at a specialist/international food store.
Well written book, tasty recipes.
Four stars. This is a solid recipe book and will be used. It would make a superlative housewarming gift to a friend or family member - college student, new graduate, newlyweds, kids flying the nest, or anyone who loves Indian food.
