Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. With their most recent cookbook, Home Baking, the authors of Seductions of Rice and Hot Sour Salty Sweet strayed slightly from the kind of pungent Asian food that is their strength, but they're back on track with this paean to the subcontinent, which they've been visiting separately and together since the 1970s. The many dals, like soupy Easy Karnataka Chana with chickpeas and salads like Nepali Green Bean-Sesame Salad are simple and terrific. Entrees are often spicy and always authentic, like Goan Pork Vindaloo, made by rubbing a vinegar-spice paste into the meat. A chapter on street foods is full of promising tidbits, including the suggestion that readers make fried foods such as Mushroom Pakoras with Fresh Herb Chutney for guests (so long as they don't mind spending a whole lot of time in the kitchen). Reading Alford and Duguid's chatty text and headnotes is like receiving envy-inducing postcards from a college friend who never gave up backpacking—if you have the sort of friends who would be disposed to build a tandoor oven out of clay and manure or visit Arugam Bay in Sri Lanka based on a tip from a snake-bitten fellow traveler. This is a comprehensive book filled with compelling writing—a worthy addition to the couple's impressive body of work. Color and b&w photos. (On sale Nov. 20)

This book provides interesting combinations of foods in each subject area and talks about each region. Some ingredients are a little difficult to locate but is generally a ready guide.

My review title is also the last line in my review of Beyond the Great Wall: Recipes and Travels in the Other China by the same authors and my comments about that book hold true here. While visually entertaining to browse through (nice pictures of Indian places and people), there is very little of substance for serious cooks. I'll stick to Madhur Jaffrey any day when it comes to Indian food.

My only problem with this beautiful book is that it takes up so much counter space there is hardly room for the ingredients and utensils.I live in a small town and have only noticed a couple of ingredients I might have a hard time finding.
