    A true treasure - flavorful recipes - best I've tasted for Indian food!

    I have visited Vij's restaurant in Vancouver 3 times and each time I can say its the best Indian meal I've had in a restuarant. I am of Indian origin and have grown up eating Indian food both at home and at restaurants...and have had my share of restaurant experiences with Indian food. Vij's tops them all. The restaurant itself is a true treasure and Vij himself is so charming and cares so much about his customers. This cookbook is no exception - great detail is taken to explain all the Indian spices and cooking methods and traditions. The recipes themselves are detailed and easy to follow, and the flavors are outstanding. These are traditional Indian dishes, with a twist here and there to give a new flavor that enhances the dish in ways you would not have thought possible. <BR/><BR/>I use Vij's recipes on a regular basis and recommend this book to anyone and everyone that is a fan or even curious about cooking Indian food.

    Excellent

    This is a great cookbook. I have made over half of the recipes so far. Very sophisticated cooking. Only two small negatives: some of the recipes call for way too much salt, and some of the curries are quite watery. But now I just use less salt and less liquid, until I get the taste and texture that I want. Overall, I am extremely pleased with it -- and so are my hungry friends.
