I am a first generation Indian in the United States and grew up eating daily the Indian food my mom prepared. As i went out on my own, and tried to cook the dishes i missed, i always would end up calling my mom as she tried to spend the next hour on the phone helping me make a dish that resembled hers. This book accurately spills out what an Indian mom would tell her kids when they try to make what they were used to, growing up. Its in simple to understand recipes with many illustrations. There are no crazy complicated steps that indian cooking many times has. It has most of my favorite dishes. A must have for any person trying to cook authentic indian food.

I like the bulk of this book but am disappointed that the cook has chosen to use Ricotta Cheese in lieu of the actual Indian ingredients in some recipes. I understand that she wanted to make it easy for Westerners but this is a big NO NO and it does impact the true flavor of a dish. Overall it is probably going to be a staple for simple home cooking in my Cook Book Collection. Enjoy~Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
