So I've always been trying (over the course of many years) to cook Indian food (because I love to eat Indian food), however it's not the easiest thing- all these spices- sometimes 15 spices to make 1 curry and it's a long and detailed process. Until now! A friend loaned me this book and I'm definitely going to buy a copy. It is amazing! and it is Indian food made easy!!! I've already tried the honey roasted spicy leg of lamb, the oven fried chilli chicken, the spiced okra, the strawberry lassi a ...more

I've never seen any of Anjum Anand's TV programs but I was aware of her as 'the new Madhur Jaffrey', so when I saw this book in a charity shop recently I thought I'd see what the fuss is about.

Anand begins here with a two page introduction in which she states that she believes Indian food is unfairly thought of as unhealthy and full of rich sauces. I'm not sure if it's ever been popularly thought of as unhealthy but perhaps certain people do still think of it in terms of the Angl0-Indian dishes

This is the first curry cookbook I ever bought. Though I find Ms Anand a bit stiff as a TV presenter, her recipes are good and certainly easier to prepare than some of the other cookbooks I've read. If you want good Indian food without a lot of fuss, start here. You will find well-explained, simple recipes that can be adapted to your needs, with no flash "cheffy" bits. You won't need a huge kitchen, or a houseful of technogadgets, or a degree in cooking, to make delicious food.

My one complaint i

I like the way Anjum explains the ingredients and spices for recipes, great if you are not sure what or how to prepare.

Ingredients that you will have in your store cupboard if you are into Asian food
Nothing to complicated, so easy for the first time tryers of asian food
Clear instructions and usually quick easy recipes

Tried several recipes
Grandchildrens favourite at the moment Oven fried chilli chicken, but I must say I cook this in my Halogen oven.

I understand Anand was trying to make Indian food easy but her style if not acceptable. Many recipes not Indian at all! Example recipe 9 and 13. Since when is burger Indian food? Also not enough spices used to make the food, easy does not mean tasty. I like some of her recipe like, 16 but it should have had more flavor.

Indian food is heritage and 1300 years of recorded Indian cooking can not be made using only 5 spices. I read many books on Indian cooking and I like some of the recipes and I wo
