This has been the best cookbook I've ever bought. Why do I say that? Because I've used it more than any other cookbook I've ever owned.
First off, the prologue is an excellent introduction to spices and herbs. The cookbook is expansive enough for almost any dish type be it meat (beef, fish, chicken, etc) or vegetarian (from potato to rice and more).
I've cooked a dozen or more recipes from this book. All have been delicious, many superb. We've had many people over and all have been amazed by the food. Be it a curry, spinach saag, home made cheese or flat breads.
But why is this cookbook so great?
Because it got me cooking!
Some notes regarding this cookbook. I found that many dishes could use to be a tad hotter. It does seem to be toned down to American palates. But it may also depend on your definition of red & green pepper. Different varieties greatly differ in heat.
Second, I found most dishes which called for lemon/lime call for a bit much in regards to American palates. So try seasoning to taste instead of going with what they call. (Mind you this comes from someone who eats fresh limes.)
- extremely easy to follow - the recipe steps are logically and (mostly) sequentially laid out... many cookbooks' recipe steps seem to jump around a bit, so if you're not a big "mis-en-place" cook, you'll suddenly find that you need an extra cup of "X", or to have already minced "Y".
- a very good early section on prepping the pastes & other mixtures you'll be drawing on frequently
- very useful pictures to help keep you on-track
- a TON of different recipes - and many are "everyday" style
- and the recipes, for the most part, seem to be pretty forgiving of substitutions or measurement alterations
- none really, but a small quirk (might not be relevant)... many Indian restaurants divide up their menus regionally, so if you're used to that, using this cookbook might re-orient you a bit, since it's more traditionally laid out (by meat/fish/veg/etc).
I purchased five different books as I prepared to start on this journey. I have reviewed four of them so far and none of them have disappointed me. Truthfully, they all vary in quality somewhat but I have gained knowledge from all of them and so I believe that they were all worth the effort. This is the last of the group of five. Just based on the outward appearance, I thought I was leaving the best for last. That may or may not be true, but I will say that this book is certainly one of the best, if not the best.
First, let me get one thing out of the way. This book does not follow generally accepted protocol for publishing in that there is no "masthead" bound into the front of the book. The book has a title page, followed by a page for author attributes and then it goes straight into the "contents" page. I looked and looked trying to determine the publisher and the date and the copyright notice, ISBN, Library info, etc., etc. ....... NO LUCK..!!! I finally located the information. There is a single page in VERY small print added as the very last page in the book.... Almost as an afterthought. !! (???) I found most of the information there, although I cannot understand the "why" of it all. ¿Quien Sabe? (Who knows..??Read more ›
