Easy Indian Cookbook: The Step-by-Step Guide to Deliciously Easy Indian Food at HomeLearning to cook Indian food has been one of the more fun adventures I've set out on. This book has easy to follow recipies and lovely illustrations. I would recommend it. To add to the fun it comes with a CD of traditional Indian music which I played as back ground music for an Indian dinner party I gave shortly after receiving the book.
I love Indian food and I've been looking for a really good Indian cookbook to use at home. I found this book appealing because it does a really good job of outlining what the different spices are and what you should have in your pantry. The book also has very easy-to-follow instructions and the photos make the food look very appetizing. I was disappointed, however, after actually eating the food. I have made eleven recipes from this book and they were not only expensive (spices aren't cheap!) but time consuming as well, so when I was faced with a bland meal which no one was excited to eat, I was pretty downhearted. I think with a few tweaks, the recipes could be really good, but sadly, I'm not skilled enough in Indian cooking to know which tweaks are needed. I will say that the cardamom ice cream is delicious -- everyone was excited to eat that. I have recently invested in "Classic Indian Cooking" by Julie Sahni and so far, I find the recipes in that book to be much tastier.
I first became familiar with Malhi while living in England. Her recipes are brilliant--easy to follow, complete, and using readily accessible ingredients. I think she perfectly balances the familiar (great Indian takeaway) with the authentic. An excellent book.
I really liked this book and thought it had easy, step by step instructions on basic dishes. I like that each recipe has a picture with it so you know what your meal should actually look like. I am a visual learner, so this really helps for me.
I've been eager to learn Indian recipes for many years now -- both for the flavors and because most recipes are already gluten-free. This is the best cookbook I've found. The recipes are also the closest to those given to me by Indian friends based on their own home cooking. The recipes aren't complicated and once the most basic ingredients are purchased most of the dishes can be made; there's no need to buy hard-to-find spices that will languish on the shelf.
