The book explains in details the nuances of south indian cooking which even a novice should be able to follow. Other that the readily known Idli, Dosa and Vada the books also covers step by step cooking techniques of several other delicacies.
A must have book for all lovers of South Indian Food.

I have several Indian cookbooks but this one is my favorite. The pictures are scrumptious and so far every recipe Ive tried (and Ive made quite a number)has met with success. 5 stars EASY!

We make at least one recipe from this book every week. Most are simple to do once you have the array of commonly used Indian spices.
