    Chicken Tikka Masala

    Worth every penny just for this recipe. OMG. Sooooooo good. I'm not a great cook, and I'm totally unfamiliar with cooking Indian food (this was my first try without store-bought sauces) and my husband said it tasted like restaurant food! I made the chicken, and also the paneer with peas and the buttery potatoes with spinach. All were great, but the Tikka Masala was spectactular! I'm now totally hooked on grinding my own fresh spices, what a difference it makes. I can't wait to get home and eat the leftovers. I did have to buy a bunch of new spices that I didn't have before, but since I've never cooked Indian food, that is to be expected.

    Had the Creamy Chicken Curry and Green Beans with Garlic & M

    Had the Creamy Chicken Curry and Green Beans with Garlic & Mustard Seeds last night, the first recipes tried from this book. All was devoured with everyone practically panting for more. Mahli's recipes are clear and straightforward, and, based on these initial two, result in mouthwatering food. She also provides an informative introduction to Indian cooking and thoughtfully explains ingredients. I can't wait to try more of her recipes. Feeling confident about the delicious results of recipes you haven't yet tried is the best recommendation for a cook book.

    Highly recommended

    I got this book when I first started to make Indian food. I love it! There is a section that tells you about all of the different spices and where they come from, which made it easier when buying them. All of the recipes I've tried from this book have been great and have received rave reviews. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is new to Indian cooking.
