Book Description

Dec 31 1999
Bring the best of authentic Indian food to your home! This large-size visual delight, with full-color photos of mouthwatering dishes, includes over 100 recipes that feature a range of flavors-many of which are delectably subtle, rather than searing hot. Feast your eyes on an enticing display of perfectly spiced soups, breads, meats, poultry, fish and shellfish, vegetables, rice, and desserts from throughout India. Try a Fish and Coconut Soup, or a deliciously refreshing chilled Split Pea Soup. Savor an Indian version of a familiar meal: Ekuri reinvents scrambled eggs by combining them with fresh green chilies. Chicken Vindaloo, a fiery curry, is not for the faint-hearted--they might prefer a mild, creamy Korma. Or make Rogan Ghosht, a combination of cubed lamb, yogurt, mint, and almonds; a rich, hearty Calcutta Beef Curry; Aloo Sag, a potato and spinach dish; Vegetable Rolls with Quick Chutney; and many more delectable ideas to tempt your palate. 256 pages, 150 color illus., 9 1/2 x 11 1/4.

5.0 out of 5 stars We LOVE this cookbook! Nov. 1 2003
Format:Paperback
I completely disagree with some of the other reviews regarding this cookbook. My husband and I are crazy about Indian food and try every restaurant we can find. Disappointed with a recent restaurant in Monterey California, we found this book and began cooking our own. Not only did we find the recipes simple to follow, we regularly comment on the fact that it looks JUST like the pictures - and tastes even better. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sure to tickle your palate Sept. 30 2002
Format:Paperback
This lavish book has been written and designed to tickle your palate. The publishers have included some rather unusual recipes that may not be part of the regular meals of Indians but are surely loved in Europe, US and many other parts of the world. Many recipe books use ingredients that may either be difficult to find or sometimes visually impossible to identify even if readily available. This book contains pictures and brief descriptions of essential Indian spices, condiments, garnishing and even utensils used to cook the dishes. Any novice would appreciate this help. Each recipe is accompanied with a full size color photograph of what you can expect the dish to look like. The ease with which you will be able to cook the seemingly complicated dishes is sure to delight and surprise you. Recipedelights.com recommends this book to novices and even experienced cooks who prefer recipes with photographs.

1.0 out of 5 stars Keep looking Oct. 22 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
While I agree with the previous reviews as to the value of color photos of each dish, unfortunately, the photos in this book rarely, if ever, accurately represent the corresponding recipe. As if spending two or more hours preparing a meal while salivating over a luscious photo, only to have it turn out pale and bland in comparison isn't bad enough, the flavor of the meals usually end up equally as bland. I've cooked many of the meals in this book, each several times, following the instructions to a "T" and using the exact ingredients required, and not a single time have I been rewarded with a meal possessing a fraction of the depth of flavor you find at an Indian restaurant. If you want a cookbook with great photos to look at, this is the book for you. If you want to cook meals with the flavor you've come to expect from frequenting Indian restaurants, keep looking.

5.0 out of 5 stars i find the book wonderful July 16 2003
Format:Paperback
Rarely do I use a cook book that had great illustrations and have the recipes come out looking like the book. But this is one I have. There are a few items that the book takes for granted, such as timings, but I find the book easy to follow and fun to cook. I haven't done all the recipes, but when we are in the mood to have Indian, we reach for this cookbook first to get our mouths set and start cooking. In fact, because of this book, I went out and got new fresh spices from the Indian Market. What a difference they make.
I think the recipes are not as 'accurate' as in other indian cookbooks, but they get the basic concepts across. I highly recommend this book for any Indian food lover.

5.0 out of 5 stars One terrific book! March 9 2001

Format:Paperback
If you are looking to expand your culinary horizions to incorporate indian food, or if u r just trying to spice up ur everyday cooking-this book is for u! i tried almost all of the recipes and they turned out absolutsly delicious. the helpful sections all thruout the book help a novice understand what indian food is all about. Most of the spices are available in the spice section of the supermarket,so its really no big deal. i would recommend this book to one and all.
