Feel sorry for anyone who owns it (including me)

The photos are god-awful. The book is peppered with spelling errors and the only thing that is nice, is the foreword. I wish more attention had been paid to ther recipes, because some of the measurements are inaccurate. I really feel sorry for anyone who has bought the book or owns it (including me)

A good, practical book with several unusual recipes

I have made several of the dishes in this book and most have turned out well. But this book is not for beginners. Though the author gives detailed instructions, many times I modified the methods as I found his methods quite tedious. Overall, if you are an experienced cook and want to try some uncommon dishes from all over India, this is a good book to buy.

The introduction takes you through the various stages of Aditya’s life and how he ended up being a chef. Then the Indian pantry is very well explained with different ingredients being grouped as aromatics, souring agents,etc and the method of using these are clearly mentioned. The basic cookin...
