A major difficulty in wrapping one's arms (and head) around the whole of East Indian cooking is its diversity. The country is large. The political divisions are many. The religions are plural.

It's hard to review a cookbook this large without spending a great deal of time with it. The handful of recipes I have cooked from it have all turned out exactly the way they should, so I am excited to continue cooking from this classic.

Great, authentic recipes from all over India. Because I live near a wonderful international farmers market and one of the best Indian groceries in the state, I can find all the ingredients in the book. However, if I lived anywhere more remote, I would find this cookbook frustrating. The ingredients would be hard to find and the author provides very few substitution ideas.

The author clearly and simply describes what it takes to create phenomenal Indian food dishes at home. Incorporating a wide variety of classic recipes, personal favorites and great menu ideas, its hard to go wrong. If you're looking for a single resource that you want to keep in your kitchen for the next 60 years, buy this book.

Aarti Sequiera recommended it on her You Tube show... I'm learning so much about Indian cuisine... excited to make many of her recipes!
New vistas, weirder spices. Favorites: peach-ginger curry, smashed potatoes with pomegranate seeds, mushrooms in almond-poppy seed sauce.

I've like the recipes I've tried -- quite a lot of variety.
