    Great-tasting food without a lot of fuss

    What a delight to find an Indian cookbook filled with wonderful recipes that don't take three+ hours to prepare and aren't laden with fat! I can whip up these recipes with one hand, bathe my kid with the other, and still be ready to sit down and eat in less than an hour. Yum. Read Madhur Jaffrey's _Indian Cooking_ for the theory, then pick up this book and start cooking.

    Absolutely Fabulous

    This book has got it all -- great recipes, interesting supplementary information and nutritional analysis for each dish. The explanations of various spices and dals are very helpful, and the diabetic/dietetic exchanges given for each recipe (the author is a registered dietitian) make meal planning a breeze for anyone using that system.
