The recipes are easy and delicious.
Dorothy R. Wallace
You go to the experts for information in the cuisine they know, and when you don't find it, you are left to look elsewhere.

This is a good book for the beginner in Indian cooking.

This isn't a bad cookbook but it isn't the greatest one either, if you don't buy it you're not missing out on anything except the pictures of Padma. The recipes aren't that difficult and the Indian ones which are her specialty are the best in the book. For people who aren't the best cooks but want to make some decent Indian dishes, Padma's book is pretty good for that. If I had a dollar for every time she mentions Daniel and her mom, I would be a millionaire...and I could have done without the narratives that are so shallow that you know that they came from the mind of a model. For example, "there I was in a beautiful Chanel gown eating a tuna fish sandwich." Someone please tell Padma her village called, apparently their model is missing. One more thing, all her recipes are available on the food network website FOR FREE.

Unlike some of the other readers, i bought this book for the recipes, not for the pictures. I tried preparing some of the recipes and I found them to be time consuming, yes the food is exotic, but I don't have three or more hours of time to spare, which is what alot of these recipes require. The final results are good, you end up with delicious meals, I'm just saying they all take longer than the book says they do and some of the instructions are not clearly written.

Pretty exotic stuff - I was looking for different recipes for couscous (was taking a trip to Sicily) at the same time, and Padma had several! She really covers a broad range of ethnic cuisines.
It would be helpful if you lived near a major metro area to obtain some of the ingredients.

This is a cook book for goodness sake. Why all the attitude. This is a good book for the beginner in Indian cooking. I had eaten this type of food at homes of some of my friends and wanted to learn more. This book filled the bill. Good cooking, everyone.

Format: Paperback
This book is not very imaginative and I guess for a new cook ,it fills the bill.Her special on Food Network in India was fascinating,as well as Spain,.Her stint on Melting Pot was a decent introduction to Indian Cooking. But this book was trying to be all things,from Salad Nicoise to Upma.The third star is for her effort,Recipes, so -so.She seems to have captured many peoples attention these days with Top Chef and her recent marriage,/divorce from Salman Rushdie and her scar,but where is the depth?Havent seen it yet.
