Product description

India: The Cookbook is the definitive guide to the rich and varied cooking of India. Doing for India what The Silver Spoon did for Italy and 1080 Recipes did for Spain, it contains 1,000 easy-to-follow, authentic recipes covering the length and breadth of India, including starter salads and kebabs; fish, vegetarian and meat main courses; breads and snacks; pickles and side dishes; and desserts and drinks. It also provides a wealth of information on the different regional cooking styles, the food philosophies of India, and guides to cooking equipment and ingredients. The recipes have been extensively researched, tested and collected from all regions of India by Professor Pushpesh Pant, author of several Indian cookbooks and an expert on Indian cuisine. They have been fully updated for western kitchens, retaining all the colours, flavours and textures of this fascinating and mouthwatering cuisine.

By marna hatton 02 Nov 2011 2

I fell in love with the look of this book, and was very excited to start trying recipes immediately. I lived in northern India for a year, and was keen to be able to recreate the delicious food I had while I was there. I was so disappointed... I've tried about 20 recipes and the measurements in every single one appears to be completely off. I really didn't find the recipes to be particularly tasty and have given up on cooking any more dishes from it. I followed all to a t but found I ended up having to try to rescue every single one.
Photography is beautiful, design and layout is also very well done, but all style no substance I'm afraid.
