The title of Madhur Jaffrey's Quick & Easy Indian Cooking (Chronicle, $19.95), an invitation to fast, flavor-filled food from the subcontinent, is not an oxymoron. Most of the more than 70 recipes, from soups to sweets, can be made in 30 minutes or less and the luscious, full-page, full-color photos add to the appeal." &mdashBookpage, January, 2008

Although I have several other of Ms. Jaffrey's books and Indian cookbooks by other authors, this is my "go to" book. Almost every recipe has a photo which immediately draws you into the book and makes you want to try the recipe. She gives both pressure cooker and conventional cooking instructions for many of the recipes. The ingredients are generally available (or there are instructions on what to substitute/omit or how to get them). In comparison with other Indian recipes, these are less time consuming to make, with fewer (relatively!) ingredients. Most importantly, the results are reliably delicious.
Madhur Jaffrey's terrific little book makes good on all three representations in the title: preparation is quick and easy and the results are definitely Indian. This is not watered down Indian; the spice combinations are subtle and full-flavored. The recipes are written for readers accustomed to American cookbooks; i.e., the measurements are accurate and time directions are specific.
