About the Author
Top customer reviews
If you're experienced with Indian cooking, I definitely recommend this book. If you're not, I suggest getting the hang of it first, but definitely purchasing this book later on. A lot of spices or ingredients like heeng (asafetida), kari leaves, methi (fenugreek), and kala jeera are difficult to find outside the Indo-Pak communities, but Batra helpfully offers a list of websites from which you can purchase them.
"1,000 Indian Recipes (1,000 Recipes) by Neelam Batra (Oct 10, 2002) - Large Print"
and I ordered it.
However, the book I received has tiny print. Even with my magnifying glass, viewing the print is hard on my eyes.
I would not be able to cook from it, unless I photocopy an enlargement of the page.
Certainly I would not be able to cook directly from the book by putting it on a book-stand.
Nevertheless, I did look at the book with my magnifying glass.
The recipes are comprehensive and well described, and the instructions are clear.
The recipes look delicious, and altogether they encompass a broad spectrum of dishes.
As a cookbook I rate it as Excellent. I'm fond of India cuisine, and wish I could cook from this book.
So I recommend the book to others, and encourage others to buy it.
But if someone (like myself) needs a Large Print book, do not buy this book. Despite the description on Amazon that it is a Large Print book, in fact the font size is tiny (not just "regular").
I don't consider this the seller's "fault," as the book's "Large Print" description on Amazon shows a list of sellers.
I'm sure that my experience of receiving this book with tiny print would be the same with any other seller.
It is the description by Amazon of this book that is at "fault," in my opinion.
I haven't yet decided whether to return the book or to give it to someone.
Yet, as a cookbook, I consider this book Excellent.
My Lesson Learned: Unless a book listed on Amazon has "Large Print" in the title or the publisher indicates that it is Large Print, do not depend upon the Amazon "Large Print" designation to be accurate.
