This is my new favourite cookbook! Richa's recipes have transformed my Indian cooking. I have learnt so much about spices and techniques and I am looking forward to using this book many times again. My husband says the meals I have made from this book are all restaurant quality.
I have found the ingredients to be easily accessible, the recipes much easier than I expected, and the outcomes are sensational. There are recipes here for simple everyday meals, but also dinner party dishes which will appeal to anyone who likes Indian food. The recipes are healthy, mostly low fat (with options e.g. to bake or fry) and they are also very flavoursome and delicious.
My favourite recipes include: Onion Chilli Fritters with Tamarind Chutney, Red Lentil Soup, Assamese Greens and Potatoes, Butternut Coconut Red Lentil Curry, Mango Curry Tofu, Potato Veggie Balls in Garlic Fenugreek Sauce, Butter Curry Seitan, Rainbow Chard and Peas in Creamy Sauce, Tofu in Spinach Curry, Puffy Restaurant-Style Naan, Dosas with Masala Potatoes and Coconut Chutney and more. I also love the desserts including the Gulab Jamun, Sandesh and Pistachio Cardamom Cookies.
I highly recommend this book.
