Review quote

A new edition of an old book, the bestselling Illustrated Indian Cookery, revised and updated with new photographs and a larger format. The old version soon established itself as the best single volume guide to Indian cuisine, covering many recipes from the familiar Rogan Josh, Tandoori Chicken and Naan Bread to the more unusual Salmon Steamed with Mustard Seeds and Tomato and Drunken Orange Slices. There is also a huge amount of information about ingredients, equipment and specialist preparation techniques. Owners of this book's previous incarnation will not be able to resist replacing their old, presumably well-thumbed copies. Readers new to Indian cookery have a treat in store.
