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.
We went out and bought all the right spices, excited to make some tasty, healthy Indian food, but were disappointed with the outcome of the recipes so far. Even though we have followed the recipes directly the meals lack flavour. Although the book quality itself is good.
It's a beautiful object, but not great as a cookbook for anyone already experienced in Indian cuisine. Nor is it authentic Indian cuisine...there are many websites for that. I bought it as a gift for someone who has recently become a vegetarian, and they were thrilled.
I bought this because I liked East so much. The recipes are good but are tailored to living in the UK and having access to those vegetables. I live overseas so can’t get hold of a lot of the fresh ingredients.
This gets a 3 for quality of actual book but to be honest I spent 3 weeks in India and as a vegetarian ate the most wonderful meals that I had expected to also be in the book but so sad to see no...they aren't!!! Recipes are ok but haven't had me running to the kitchen to fire up the stove in fact got my favourite recipes from the internet after being disappointed with the book..so yes it covers some foods but if you have been to India don't bother..do some research and find a better recipe book
