This book has 12 vegetarian recipes that use legumes. Not all are "lentil" recipes as the title implied to me. I was thinking of the lentil like those in American lentil soup. Actually, the recipes cover different types of lentils, black eyed beans and kidney beans. Is it a short book? Yes, but then again, how many dal recipes do you really need? The measurements in the first couple of recipes are sometimes quirky and have grams or mililiters that I had to convert to cups and ounces. This made me think it was really a collection of recipes instead of one author who wrote it. For that reason I would not recommend this book to the beginning cook.
However, the process described in the recipes were simple, and the ingredient lists were not too long like some Indian cookbooks. Everything I made, turned out pretty good. I think if you like trying new flavors, would like to eat lowfat food, and know how to improvise as you cook, you would enjoy this book.

After living in India, I'm always on the look out for a good Indian Cookbook that I can tell my friends about. I will not be telling anyone to purchase this. Unlike other reviewers it is not the length of the book. It is that the author used basically the same spices with very little variation.

And like the other reviewers I found the mixture of standard measurements and metric measurements daunting. There is a conversion table included, but i believe that the author should have followed one style or included both styles for each ingredient.

In addition I found the heavy use of powdered spices to be unusual. Most dals I've eaten have used predominantly whole spices, excluding turmeric and garam masala which are always powdered.

Speaking of garam masala, I always detest a cookbook that calls for the use of garam masala, without including at least one recipe for it, after all not everyone has easy access to an Indian store.

As for the directions I found several confusing and a couple down right strange in the wording. Worse, I found the method in cooking a couple of them wrong, (1. in my experience, the cook should skim any scum created while cooking dal, not stir it back in. 2. when making dal makhani , chana ki dal is usually added to give a "creamier" consistancy)

Another issue I have is when an author says, "this is great with roti, etc", without giving at least one basic bread recipe. I realize that this book is called Lentil Recipes, but if you mention a food item with nearly every recipe saying that this is good with roti, then I believe a roti recipe should be included. Others may not feel this way.

Don't waste your money on this small ebook. There is not mush to it and the recipes are confusing - ingredients are sometimes listed in grams, sometimes in cups, tablespoons and teaspoons, and even in liters, so you will have to find a conversion chart if you're and American cook. Several recipes have listed spice mixtures without telling you the proportions of each spice. If you are looking for a good Indian cookbook with many good dal recipes I recommend "Complete Cookbook of Indian Cooking" by Suneeta Vaswani.
