I love Indian food.
And by that I mean authentic
Indian food, not what most Indian chain restaurants churn out, but
rather honest to goodness down home cooking. And just as much as I love
Indian food I love just as much to cook it myself. So as you can
imagine, when I spotted this title on Netgalley I grabbed the chance to
request it :)
And now I read it and can tell you in perfect honesty that this is a great book!
have several Indian cookbooks, some I go to more often than others.
This is definitely a "go to " cookbook. The recipes are very
straightforward and pretty simple. In fact, I would really recommend
this one for someone just starting out in Indian cooking because the
recipes are very do-able in that they use the same basic 10 or so
spices,( including your onion, garlic, Chili and cilantro). So its not
overwhelming. You could stock up on the basic spices and actually make
almost every recipe in the book without needing to rent a storage unit
to house your spices. Really truly.
Even for someone not easily
overwhelmed and who likes to play with truckloads of spices (*cough*
that would be me) sometimes time is of the essence and you need
something you can whip up on short notice that still tastes awesome.
This fits the bill.
In fact I really wish I had this in
paper (not just digitally) because I know I would use it over and over
again if I could grab it off the shelf. Looks like the Scrooge will have
to buy herself a hardcopy... :)
And by the way, there's a color picture for every recipe! Now that is what I like to see!
I received a free ecopy of this book from Netgalley and the publishers in exchange for my honest opinion. Thank you!
