This is almost an anthropology cookbook, showing how Indian cuisine has spread to many countries, and adapted to local ingredients and tastes. I grew up on African curries, and was happy to see my old familiar potato and pea curry in here (not that I need a recipe for that one). British, SE Asian, Sri Lankan, Pakistani recipes - as well as many classical Indian dishes. I've only made one recipe yet, and it was yum. I look forward to making many more.

An awesome cookbook. I would use it all the time, if not for the fact that most of the people I cook for cannot stand spices of any sort.

Despite that, it is a great read, and the photography tantalizing and illustrative.
Great recipes but amazing history of India, the Indian diaspora and food history and culture. Checked out from the library and ordered my own copy to keep. Highly recommend it.

This is a great culinary lens for learning about Indian migration. I don't make a lot of these recipes, but the photos are beautiful and the copy is fascinating.

Punchy collection - lots of intensely flavored dishes gathered together. It's the kind of book you can jump into at random and know you'll get something impressive.
I checked this out from the library not expecting much-- there are so many recipes in here I would like to cook! I am going to buy a copy ASAP.
Trace the tastes you love in Indian/SE Asian/African to one and another and beyond; incredible for understanding the foundations of the flavor.
