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 particularly love how she explains with most recipes what the social context of the dish is - at an Indian restaurant it's easy to lose sight of how truly festive some dishes are, and feel like a failure if you can't make an elaborate tricky feast like the mamas do for Diwali or whatever - her narratives, memories and explanations put me at ea...more
