No current Talk conversations about this book.
Bought this one many years ago and used it a couple times with pretty poor results. That said, in the intervening years I have grown a lot as a cook, so it might be worth giving this another shot. ( )
I love this book - I use the cracked pepper rice recipe a lot, and I love the dal recipes.
It's as close to encyclopedia of Indian vegetarian cooking as can be. I consult it continuously.
Much used, much loved book.

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