However, what I found to be most compelling is the simple yet subtle complexity of the flavors. Most of the Indian foods that I've been exposed to have had so many different ingredients and spices in one dish that it's difficult to distinguish any one particular flavor note and thus eventually everything tastes basically the same. Not so with these recipes. I love that there are only a few key flavors in each dish which allows the spices and ingredients to really stand out. It's about time someone has written an Indian cookbook in a sophisticated manner that really showcases the myriad of spices found in Indian cuisine. This truly is a stellar, knockout book that I would recommend for anyone who enjoys cooking, especially those who love cooking for others much like Chef Vikas.
