I've never been disappointed by a recipe in this book. My catering company did very well with the various samosas in here. ( )

This is a great Indian cookbook. Any recipes in this book that are not vegan can easily be veganized. Milk can be replaced with soy milk, and Paneer can be replaced with tofu, etc. ( )
