It's been a while since I read The Joy Luck Club but I remember the style and substance in The Hindi-Bindi Club not comparing favorably. There was not a whole lot about either the older or younger generations that either tied them together or tore them apart, so that seemed a bit forced. I never really bought into all the Gen-Y lingo that the grandmas were using in their email or even the fact that they emailed so much! I thought the recipes gave the stories character and I never realized how complicated Indian cooking is. I did enjoy learning more about a culture and its politics through these mother-daughter relationships so overall I liked it and would probably recommend it.
