Editorial Reviews

Review

"...it would be hard to imagine a warmer, more easygoing introduction to Indian cuisine in North America than the one put together by the Vancouver restaurateurs Meeru Dhalwala and Vikram Vij in their Vij's at Home: Relax, Honey"—Sam Sifton, The New York Times

"[Dhalwala and Vij] simplify Indian cooking for North American home cooks without sacrificing the integrity of the cuisine. ...A friendly, accessible book in which many cooks will delight. Recommended."—Library Journal

"this cookbook underscores how simple Indian cooking can be and how attainable it can be even on busy weekdays if you've got the basic ingredients on hand."—Portland Oregonian

“...easily among the finest Indian restaurants in the world”—Mark Bittman, The New York Times

"Vij’s is at once an excellent restaurant and a curious one, Indian without being doctrinaire about it, utopian without being political."—Sam Sifton, New York Times Magazine

This is a personal, family cookbook and you can feel Vij's generosity and warmth in the book, almost like going to his restaurant in Vancouver.

It's so well-written - everything is explained in great detail.

I love this recipe book! I love Indian food but usually it can take a while to make. This is fast, simple, everyday food that is really delicious. I LOVE the brussels spouts recipe, paneer with spinach and tomatoes (I even made my own paneer) and the spicy cauliflower. Nothing hasn't turned out delicious! It is particular good for vegetarian options.

This is a great cookbook and guide for Indian cuisine. It includes beautiful photography of all the dishes and visual guides for preparing them. It has an especially helpful section on all the herbs and spices used in Indian cooking and the basics on how to prepare and combine them. This is great when you're improvising--which I often do. The books also suggests how to combine individual recipes together to create complete meals. I totally recommend!

I just received "Vij's at Home" yesterday. I had pre-ordered it in September because I am such a fan of Vij's restaurants (Vij's and Rangoli in Vancouver) and the first cookbook by Vikram Vij and his wife, Meeru Dhalwala, Vij's: Elegant and Inspired Indian Cuisine.

I'm not a vegetarian, but this new book has many vegetarian recipes that really look inspired. I'm excited to try them! I've lately discovered how easy it is to cook dried beans with my slow cooker; Vij's at Home has given me many ideas for making fabulous meals using cooked beans and lentils.

There are also chapters on seafood, poultry, and meat, including recipes for goat. Since we have markets in our neighborhood that sell goat meat, I may have to give it a try.

Besides all of the great-sounding recipes, there's helpful information about Indian ingredients and how to use them. This beautiful book makes Indian cooking very approachable for North Americans and I know we will enjoy many new recipes from it.

Now, if only Vikram and Meeru would open a restaurant in Seattle!

After years of using his first cookbook, I jumped on the occasion to buy this one! Once again, the instructions are great and the food is just as tasty as you could ever want. Well done Vij!

Format: Paperback
Vij's recipes are so, so delicious and we are really enjoying working our way through this well illustrated book. This is a personal, family cookbook and you can feel Vij's generosity and warmth in the book, almost like going to his restaurant in Vancouver. The history of the recipes and the place they have in his life make this much more than just an offering of impersonal dishes. Also it is a pleasure to be able to quickly produce high quality Indian dishes at home, with well rounded flavors and a surprising variety of tastes.

I've tried recipes from several Indian cookbooks, but the results have usually not quite matched my imagination or memories of flavors from restaurants. I've now tried nine vegetarian recipes from 'Vij's At Home' and every one has been excellent. I particularly like that most of the ingredients are widely available in northern climes - potatoes, green beans, mushrooms, spinach. While a few of the spices require a trip to an Indian market, most of the recipes can be made with only the spices available at your local grocery store. The cilantro chutney is addictive!
