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
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.

This book provides basic receipes for indian food. They taste great and are easy to follow. If you purchase a few basic spices most of the receipes are yours to make at a whim. Penseys.com is the place to get the needed spices. My brother and his wife recommended this book to us and it just wonderful. Buy and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars i find the book wonderful July 16 2003
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed Dec 29 2002
I have tried many of the recipes in this book and all but one (the green pea soup) turned out quite bad. I cook regularly and enjoy Indian food. While the photos are nice they do not represent the boring mush that I ended up with. I recent bought another indian cookbook and have gotten 100% success there. I recommend you find another option if you want to cook rather than look and pictures.

1.0 out of 5 stars Keep looking Oct. 22 2002
By A Customer
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.
