Madhur Jaffrey's Indian Cooking based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
I bought this cookbook about 6 years ago. I'm glad that it's still in print. I use it often for my family when we get tired of the 'same Old'. Very tasty dishes and good explainations. Nothing too 'weird', just good simple Indian food.
This book has more than 130 authentic recipes, many enhanced by full-color photos. The original edition of this cookbook was called "the definitive word" on Indian cusines by the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner. Heavenly aromas are a reason enough to experiment with the recipes. We, at Recipedelights.com think that this book is a good start for those who love Indian cooking or are thinking about giving it a try.
This book has made the art of Indian cooking easy and fun. Don't be discouraged by looking at the long, daunting list of ingredients used in most recipes. Madhur Jaffrey takes you step by step so you cannot mess up a dish. I personally have tried almost all of the recipes listed (all of the pages of my cookbook are heavily soiled now) and each one was a hit from the very first attempt. After working with this book a few times, you are able to take your extensive knowledge of spices and incorporate them into your 'everyday' cooking as well. My favorite recipe is the one for Sour Chickpeas! Delicious!
Very easy to use, instructions are clear and the book makes great currys.
