This book is one of those cookbooks worth owning simply for reading, because reading it makes one so hungry and so inspired. -- If one is a fan of South Indian food. And, how can one not be? I have never seen so many different variations of sambhar or rasam.

If you have made often enough the one type of sambhar and rasam your mom taught you, reading about all these fancy variations will whet the appetite. -- Both for cooking and for eating. You will have been already familiar with your mom's par

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.
