Ashley’s recipes have become staples in my kitchen. I love how simple, flavorful, and crowd-pleasing they are. I don’t have to go hunting for odd ingredients; her recipes use ingredients I generally keep on-hand in my pantry. I’ve made her recipes for family with plain, non-adventurous tastes and opened up a whole new world of gastronomical delight for them. And no one can tell that the food is gluten- and dairy-free! The flavors also excite my taste buds (Indian is my comfort food). The recipes are easy to make and don’t take a lot of time, but with the flavors that come out of the pot, one would think I’d labored all day over the meal. Thank you, Ashley!
While the digital blog format is nice because recipe search is easier, there's something nice about having a book next to you while you cook. The book's recipes aren't found in the blog, and the few ones that are, are slightly modified and provide extra feedback about why the ingredient is necessary.
For example - not going to lie, I was going to try to make butter chicken without the kasoori methi... Then of course Ashley has a footnote in the book, along the lines of, "I know it's just a pinch of kasoori methi, but make sure you get it because it's what gives butter chicken it's flavor."
Ashley read my mind.
I went to the grocery store 15 minutes away and it was totally. worth. it. This has been the best $22 I've spent. Recipes are delicious and unique, and the book is nice to hold and have next to you as you cook away. Seriously this is the first cookbook I've bought and it is nice to not have to run from your computer (away from the splash zone) back to the kitchen.
Anyway - if you're still reading this - get the book!
And Ashley - Thank you so much - Love this book!
This book includes a color photo of every recipe on the page with the recipe as well as some introductory text that puts the recipe in context. Most of the dishes are new to me so knowing that the end product looks like and having some context is incredibly helpful.
I'm also delighted that this cookbook inspired me to find and shop at my local Indian grocery store. They've got all kinds of great stuff that I've started to include in my American recipes with great results. I'm sure that this will vary a lot depending on how you shop, but I also found the recipes in this book to be very affordable. If you are watching your food budget, you'll find some great cheap eats here, after the initial cost of purchasing the spices (at my local Indian grocery store I found the spices to be very reasonably priced).
This book isn't huge, but it's packed with recipes I'm excited about making. I'm trying to eat a diet of whole foods with no added sugars (no white sugar, no honey, no maple syrup, no molasses, no ground up dates...) and I love that every recipe in this book fits the bill (except the desserts, but I consider that a good thing, I love that the recipes are authentic, not modified-diet recipes). I'm also trying to eat more butter and I love that this book gives me lots of opportunity to add more butter to my meals (just add ghee).
