Readers informed me they were surprised to learn how healthy and simple it could be to prepare traditional Indian food. People wanted more recipes, another cookbook that would go into even more detail on the health benefits of the individual ingredients. Well, I’ve been inspired by my readers. This, my second book, is full of my newest, delicious, simple-to-prepare creations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bal's quick and healthy indian Jan. 1 2012
Format:Paperback
I have been watching Bal on Spice Goddess and love her meals. I have started using more and more of her spices. Her book is wonderful with the recipes and her explanation of the nutritional contents. I enjoy her stories of her village where she grew up. I started reading the book as soon as it arrived, cover to cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars A journey on the healthy side! Jan. 8 2013
By Judi v.
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Both of Bal's books are truly superior both in content and presentation. Have been following her on the Cooking Channel so was looking forward to the books' contents: Personally, I feel she is a master of her craft and is able to combine the traditional Indian spices with western foods - love the mix and match of it all. Hope there will be a followup.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick, Healthy AND Delicious Jan. 28 2013
By PW
Format:Paperback
Can't say enough about this terrific cookbook. It's become my "go to" when we want something quick, easy and delicious. We have no Indian restaurants in our little town and we love Indian food; so this is a god send for my husband and I. I've not been disappointed yet in any of the dishes we've tried. Highly recommend this one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Indian-inspired dishes that celebrate spices June 18 2011
By Esther Schindler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I've really enjoyed Bal Arenson's Spice Goddess cooking show on TV, enough so that I've looked up a few of her recipes online to make for dinner. When I found that the library had a copy of her new cookbook, I grabbed it. I'm glad I did.

Most Indian cookbooks (and ethnic cookbooks in general) make a big deal about teaching you to cook authentic dishes, just like Mom used to make. Sometimes they take shortcuts for time or because we can't get the same ingredients, but the expectation is that we are approximating a "real" Indian dish. What I like about Bal is that while she celebrates the spices and flavors of India, she is happy to use North American ingredients. (You may need to go shopping for some of the spices, but most of them are available mail order, and I'm lucky enough to have a Penzey's Spices store nearby.) Her attitude seems to be, "If salmon was available in India, this is what we would have done with it."

The author also puts a lot of emphasis on making the food healthy and, if not precisely "ready in 30," at least easy to put together on a busy weeknight. If you have a complete spice pantry (mine is 5 feet high, in what was built to be a DVD wall unit), you only need a few items for a tasty dinner. For instance, "coriander tuna with broccolini" uses crushed coriander seeds as a crust on the fresh tuna, served with steamed veggies spiced up with toasted mustard seeds.

There's a good balance of meat, fish, and vegetarian options. So far, the only dish I've made from the book is "chicken with almond butter," which met my criteria for a healthy midweek meal. (She notes, "Almonds are a good source of monounsaturated fats, vitamin E, magnesium, and potassium.") In addition to the chicken breasts and 1/4 cup of almond butter, it uses garlic, a tablespoon (!) of fenugreek seeds, coriander, and a cup of chopped tomatoes. It went together very quickly and was a solid YUM.

Next up on the What To Make For Dinner list is "maple cardamom salmon," served with bok choy and ginger. Or maybe it's "eggplant and sweet potatoes with cherry tomatoes" (seasoned with fresh ginger, cumin seeds, and garam masala). Hmm. These are fun choices.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and easy Indian cooking Aug. 7 2011
By R. Pflaum - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bal caught my attention with her cooking show "Spice Goddess". She is an excellant teacher and her manner translate well into a cook book. I have tried 4 of her recipes from the show and have made 3 of the recipes from this book, including making my own paneer, which is homemade cheese. It is fun and what a difference making your own cheese does for a recipe! She also gives you alternatives for many items for if you don't have it in your kitchen. You do need to stock up your kitchen when some spices normally not found in an US home, but they are well worth the cost to make Indian food in your own home. Well worth the price if you love Indian food and want to make it healthier for today's diets!

By Michael Banes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The recipes we've tried so far have been wonderful. We've even made paneer. Who knew it was so easy? The food tastes even better because of Bal's anecdotes of life in India while she was growing up.
