I am Indian and have been cooking Indian food for very many years now. But have fallen into a rut with the things that I cook... the same few foods made the same way !!! I did try a number of different cookbooks to add some variety and flavor to my cooking... but to little success.

Then I came accross this book by Monica and I must say that I am pleasantly surprised - by the simple yet delicious recipes, easy layout and variety. There are so many things that I never dared to cook thinking that it would be really complicated or time consuming. But Monica's recipes are short, concise and very easy to follow.

I would definitely recommend this book to those who want to start cooking Indian food as well to those who want a change and variety in their collection.

Thanks Monica ( that comes from my family !!!)

I love this Everything Indian cookbook. It's a wonderful introduction to Indian cooking - especially for a novice like myself. I like the fact that it starts with basic techniques and basic recipes that you use throughout the book. The other thing I really like is that the recipes are less than a page - some of them sound complicated, but when you really examine them, you notice that the trick is really just to be sure to do the prep work in advance and things should move fairly smoothly. Thus far, I've only tried a few basic dishes - some vegetable dishes and a couple of chicken dishes, but I've been pretty happy with the results. The biggest trick often is tracking down the ingredients - especially the spices. I don't have an Indian grocery store nearby, but I've found quite a few things at my local Whole Foods and World Market. The author has also provided a list of resources to get some of the more difficult to obtain spices. I encourage anyone who is interested in learning more about Indian cooking to try this book and try out a few of the recipes. Your tastebuds will be highly rewarded.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Please note that my review is for the kindle version of this cookbook. I would rate this 4 star had I purchased this in the paperback version.

The problem with the kindle version is that no care was taken to modify the content of this book to accomodate an ebook format. As an example, the ingredient list for Chicken Tikka Masala includes the following items:

1 tablespoon Ginger-Garlic Paste (see recipe on page 13)
1/2 teaspoon Warm Spice Mix (see recipe on page 12)
1 recipe Chicken Tikka (page 24)

eBooks do not use page references like a regular book would, which means knowing the page number isn't very helpful at all (ex: "Page 13" of this book is really "location 320-327" in the ebook). One can incorporate a series of search functions or navigate through the table of contents to locate the recipes being referenced but this is very time consuming. Doing a search for "Page 13" will not yield results, doing a search for "Ginger-Garlic Paste" will yeild A LOT of results (not necessarily the ones you want or need) and navigating through the table of contents takes some guess work since the recipes are nested within broader categories. It would be nice if they at least hyper-linked cross-referenced recipes but minimally, page numbers should have been updated to reflect appropriate location numbers.

As for the recipes themselves, I'm very pleased. I would consider this an introduction to Indian cooking. As others have mentioned you may notice that some of your 'favorites' are otherwise missing (No Aloo Gobi :(??), however, this cookbook offers a nice collection of familiar dishes as well as lesser known dishes that are a true delight to try.

This cookbook is apart of "The Everything" series of books that helps teach its readers everything about cooking, sports, health and more. Monica Bhide's "The Everything Indian Cookbook" is a nice addition!

Monica Bhide is from India. She has been cooking Indian cuisine for more than 20 years, and has taken several formal cooking courses on Indian food. She is a caterer, home chef and is now offering online cooking classes! This is her second cookbook!

This cookbook offers delicious recipes to the Indian food lovers of the world! Each recipe is easy-to-read; gives the English name to the dish, as well as the Indian name; gives an approximate preparation time frame, as well as cooking period.

Each recipe offers ideas for serving, a substitution for a hard-to-find ingredient, or a piece of trivia about the dish. The chapters included in this book are: Basics of Indian Cooking; Basic Recipes; Glossary; Suggested Menus; Additional Resources; as well as chapters for each food item (starters, drinks, salads etc.).

Although there are no photographs in the cookbook, the dishes are so easy to prepare, one does not need a picture of the end-result.

Some of the delicious recipes you will encounter in this book are: Mango Yogurt Pudding, Shrimp Fritters, Dill and Potato, as well as Red Radish Salad.

This is a great cookbook filled with wonderful Indian dishes. Pick up a copy and learn about this wonderful corner of the world!
