To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I love this book, I'm a vegetarian who cooks a lot of vegan food and my downfall for dairy is more often that now paneer, I can't wait to try the tofu substitute for paneer. The recipes are simple and ( as far as I have tried) very tasty with a subtle blend of spices. The baked samosa sticks are to die for as it the spinach stuffed paratha ( which my kids loved, that alone makes the book worth the money) . I don't own a slow cooker so it is helpful to have instructions on how to cook dishes without one . This is fast becoming one of my favourite recipe books and I have many!!!! My only ask for the next one is please tell me how to cut jaggery without killing myself !!!!! I have no microwave to soften it
The good: Includes some of background on the subject such as some history and a bit on commonly held misconceptions. Features entirely (as far as I know) actual Indian dishes - not just what the Western world perceives as Indian dishes. Includes basics such as making yogurt and builds up from there; nothing is assumed and so the book is suitable for novices and advanced cooks alike. Clear, easy to follow and use. Great for ideas and inspiration as well as making the actual dishes.
The bad: Simply because I try and include at least one opportunity for improvement in every review - but this really is nit-picking - only some dishes include pictures. I imagine this actually keeps printing and therefore retail cost down, so...
Fabulous cookbook for anyone who loves Indian food and wants to follow a vegan diet.The recipes are easy to follow and so far I haven't cooked anything from this book that didn't produces a delicious meal.
Ich liebe indische Küche und kann dieses Buch ohne Einschränkungen weiterempfehlen, egal ob vegan oder nicht.
Die meisten Vegetarier leben in Indien. Es sind noch etwa 40 %. Früher waren es mehr, aber durch die Globalisierung wird auch in Indien mehr Fleisch gegessen. Man kann es allerdings nicht mit Deutschland vergleichen. In Indien essen die Menschen ca. 5 kg pro Kopf pro Jahr. In Deutschland etwa 60 kg.
If you want to cook authentic (and healthy and simple!) Indian food, these books are for you!!! This book is perfect for non-vegans and vegans: a lot of Indian food is naturally vegan, so either way, you will love this book!
Anupy's books have all the staples of Indian cuisine, and she has done an amazing job at making it simple for non-Indians while keeping it authentic. Her books are really well organized, they have lots of great photos and tips, each recipe is really well explained and easy to follow, and they are all really healthy!!!
I am a Canadian married to an Indian and her books have changed my life - I now cook authentic Indian food regularly for my family, and my husband and his family couldn't be more impressed!! I have all three of her books now and we love all of her recipes.
Thank you Anupy for helping people like me and keep up the amazing work!!!
