    Nice compialtion of recipes

    This is a good compilation of traditional Indo-French recipes from Pondicherry. Although the recipes are more southern Indian in nature however they are unique. The book is simply laid out without too many complicated instructions. Anyone can try out these recipes. The pictures could be of better quality though, they seem to be clicked by an amateur. Good attempt to preserve these recipes for future generations. Definitely a collectors book.
