I think the recipes are not as 'accurate' as in other indian cookbooks, but they get the basic concepts across. I highly recommend this book for any Indian food lover.
The other issue I have with it is it appears that there was very little quality assurance involved with this book. The recipes, it seem, have all the ingredients listed to the left. However, as you begin to go through the recipe, you will find that some of the ingredients listed are simply not used in the recipe. This is not because they aren't used, I think, but because the author simply forgot to include them.
I think most cooks however, can overcome that. The pictures, as others have mentioned, are very nice. The paper is also very nice. Perhaps not something you'd really want to have in the kitchen (for fear of damaging it), but nonetheless would make a great addition to a library in general.
The quality of the recipes themselves is also up for subjective interpretation. Most indian food (per tihs book) is not particularly complicated. There's a lot of ginger, coriander, cardamom, turmeric, and lemongrass involved.Read more ›
