Including some of her best recipes and tidbits, this book introduces readers, both novice and experienced cooks, to the sweet seduction of Indian culinary delights. Offering secrets that Rushina is known for, such as her Gujarati Undhiyu, Sindhi Kadhi, Curry Leaf Fish, Goan Sausage Pulao, Clove-Scented Lamb in Red Wine, and Chindian Manchurian, dishes which blend beauty and the thrill of scintillating and mouth-watering recipes to draw even the most apprehensive and novice cooks to the kitchen.

Absolutely Fantastic

I have never seen a Recipe book with such a wonderful personal touch. Its heart warming to see how much love has gone into it. Its like an autobiography of the author but incidents are replaced with some lovely simple recipes from all over. I actually read the whole book like a novel first.
a MUST have for every foodie.
