My husband and I both love Indian cuisine and have tried many times over the years to cook it, much to our disappointment. We've purchased many Indian cookbooks, but we could never get the recipes to turn out very good. We had almost given up and resigned ourselves to only eating Indian food at restaurants. Then I found this book. It came recommended to me by some Indian friends who said it was easy, authentic & they enjoyed most of the recipes. So far, every recipe we've tried has been great. I am getting results as good or better than restaurant fare for the first time in years! And the recipe presentation is so easy, I'm even trying to make some of the recipes that I used to think would be too hard, like some of the stuffed breads. I have a lot of cookbooks, but I find myself making recipes out of this one all the time. There are also plenty of quick recipes, so even if you've had a long day, you can still have great Indian meal in a half an hour. If you like Indian food, you won't be disappointed with this book.
