In front of me is a new vegetarian cookbook: The Modern Ayurvedic Cookbook
. Ayurvedic is a big word that may turn casual readers away, but for serious foodies seeking soothing and healing recipes, vegans and those who are into holistic health, this one works.... It's a friendly cookbook that anyone can use and appreciate, including those who just enjoy cooking and those who simply love Indian vegetarian cuisine.

I am pleased that Amrita Sondhi has written such a wonderful book! Not only as a cookbook, but also as a valuable resource and as a comprehensive introduction to the profound health science of Ayurveda, I heartily recommend this book! The recipes are tasty and easy to prepare, and the appendices offer important information on yoga-asana, aromatherapy, color therapy, and detailed menu plans, making it one of the most user friendly books about Ayurveda I know.
