This review is from: The Spice Is Right: Easy Indian Cooking for Today (Paperback)
I checked this out of the library, and after one read went out and bought a copy. I have enjoyed this cookbook immensely. I like Indian food but have found that many Indian cookbooks are sticklers for authenticity to the point of hours of work, or all the recipes begin to taste the same. These recipes are full of flavor, and many can be prepared with ingredients available at the local supermarket. Many of the recipes are quick - Ms. Bhide has even added recipes for using leftovers. These are a boon when I come home at the end of the day and want to throw something together.
The recipes in this book are organized into menus, so a novice can try one or two from a section, and perhaps add more later on. I have mixed and matched from different menus as well with success.
Some recommended recipes; Chicken with Fenugreek, Whisky Fish, Turnip Treats, and Coriander Layered Potatoes.
