The book is nicely laid out. Starts by explaining about construction of tandoor. Talks a lot about the spices used. Tandoori chicken recipe is very original. Has lots of pictures. A must have Indian barbeq book.

THIS BOOK WILL TAKE PRIDE AND PLACE IN MY COLLECTION OF GREAT COOKERY BOOKS.
HAVING RECENTLY PURCHASED A TANDOOR I WANTED TO MAKE SURE I GET THE BEST RESULTS FROM IT.
THIS WELL ILLUSTRATED BOOK IS A WEALTH OF INFORMATION AND WILL GIVE GREAT PLEASURE TO MYSELF AND FAMILY AND FRIENDS WHO LOVE FOOD FROM THE TANDOOR.

This book really pushes the frontier of tandoori cuisine. Author's passion comes through in his research, notes, and recreation of ancient recipes. Highly recommended.

This book is Excellent. Unfortunately, I've been able to try only 2 recipes (about 10-15 times each) because that's what everyone wants (again and again). If you try these recipes in a regular oven hold the chillies a bit as the the end product is much hotter in an oven as compared to a Tandoor. (its also drier but that is to be expected). I guess the reason is that part of the marinade is burnt off by the Tandoor heat and some more falls off as the chicken sweats off some liquid.
