I've had the pleasure of taking some of Shubhra Ramineni's cooking classes here in Houston. So I've gotten to taste some of the dishes that I knew would be included in this cookbook when it came out. I came to this already being a 'fan-boy'of Shubhra's cooking. But what I am saying here comes from the heart as this book truly lives up to the promise. If you're on my gift list for Christmas this year, this is probably the book that's gonna end up in your stocking.As cookbooks go, this one is an absolute delight for the eyes. It is full of exceptional 'how to' photographs. Heck, this book is just one wonderful page of appropriate and helpful photographs after the next. Check out pages 56 and 57 where Shubhra walks you through the process of making dosa.First section I started working from when I got my copy was the section on breads. She answered so many questions in this book about the best ways to make Indian breads in the home kitchen. Chapati. Naan. Besan Ki Roti. Aloo Ka Paratha. Poori. And my favorite: the puffed up 'beignet' of Indian breads, the bhatura. Again, spectacular photographs, making this my default grab-this-off-the-shelf-first book on Indian cooking.Yeah, the sub-heading of this book is 'Easy Indian Recipes for Busy People'. And the book stays true to that theme. She has done a first rate job of understanding the logic of how these dishes come together and communicating the preparation of the dishes in steps that are easy to follow and fairly fool-proof. One of the very nice touches is that most of the recipes come with recommendations on pairing with breads or other recipes in the book.Page 33: Lentils. Photos of the 7 most common lentils with descriptive info.
