Anupy has a lot of dal recipes that don't specify which bean/legume to use and that bothers me. Richa specifies and gives alternatives. I also love everything I've made from VRIK, while VIC is a little more hit or miss. I'd suggest getting it from the library first and seeing if it works for you. (less)

Hands down, favourite Indian cookbook ever! Doesn't even matter that all the recipes are vegan. Everytime I cook from it, my neighbors and friends ask what is and can I share the recipe. The band gobi is fantastic, even better if you replace the cabbage with shredded brussel sprouts.

Recipes are too complicated with spices that would be hard to find. I'm not ready for these types of recipes yet.

Beautiful pictures of Indian food. My mouth was watering! Lots of ingredients needed for each recipe...some unusual. may be easier to just go to local Indian restaurant.

I must say, there is a ton of seasonings I don't have. I ran all over yesterday finding the ingredients for dinner tonight. I hope it's yummy!!!

Many of the recipes are really good. I just can't bring myself to use the asafetida. Not only was it the most difficult seasoning to find, it smells just like gear oil. The smell is so foul and so strong, I had to put it in a glass jar because I could smell it all the way in my bedroom the first night I had it in the house.

I'd like to try her slow cooke

Vegan Indian Cooking provides a nice introduction to Indian recipes, ingredients, and techniques. I'm new to Indian cooking and really appreciated the introductory sections that detailed the main spices. I wish it had more pictures. As someone who isn't super familiar with the cuisine or the terminology, pictures go a long way in helping decide whether or not to make something. I think I'll try a more beginner's cookbook first and come back to this when I know a bit more about what I'm doing.

I checked this out of the library, renewed it a few times, then went and bought a copy. After several years of failing miserably at cooking Indian food at home, this book has helped me make delicious, inexpensive Indian feasts at home. You will need to go to an Indian grocery or order most of the spices online. You can get everything on Amazon but they seem to be more expensive than in a store.

Lovely book, full of delicious looking recipes and really practical ways to use a slow cooker to make healthy Indian meals. If only I could find the ingredients in my small Midwestern town and could find family members willing to try these with me.

Beautiful pictures of delicious food - I made a number of recipes from this book and a couple from Anupy Singla's blog. For some reason, easier than many other Indian recipes, but still authentic flavor.

I was underwhelmed by this. It seems to me that there ought to be a lot more interesting recipes--a lot of Indian food veganizes very easily, often simply by not using ghee.

There are not many exclusively vegan Indian cookbooks on the market. This one is splendid and on my list to buy.

Haven't made any of the recipes yet, but will! We have her slow cooker Indian book and it is AWESOME. I expect this will be the same. Plan to purchase this one!

I love this book. The focus is on recipes with whole foods, not vegan products or meat substitutes. Great flavors.

Although you may have to order a lot of the spices online or visit a specialty shop or Indian market, this was a nice overall introduction to basic Indian cooking.

I tried three or four of the recipes. They were quite good, except the tempeh tandoori, which was missing something.

This is a great vegan cookbook. I use it all the time. Once you have your spices, the recipes are a BREEZE and so delicious and healthy!
