I am loving the amazing reviews of the book! “I promised myself that I was NOT going to buy this book. I already own hundreds of vegetarian and vegan cookbooks and the last thing I needed was another cookbook.
I received the book a week ago. Here are the recipes I’ve tried so far: Spicy South Indian Tofu Scramble, Street Style Tempeh Wraps, Mint Cilantro Chile Chutney, Mashed Potato Fritters (baked), Dad’s Favorite Cauliflower Potatoes, Tofu in Spinach Curry, and South Indian Chickpea Eggplant Stew. Every recipe was amazing and my husband and I were so impressed with how well the Mashed Potato Fritters turned out. The book is perfect in every way. The recipes are clear, concise, and well organized. The photographs are appetizing and inspiring. Richa gives preparation choices, always allowing you to make recipes low fat and healthy. The flavors are just fabulous. I’ve owned other vegetarian Indian cookbooks before, but have usually found that the recipes are excessively complicated or just too high fat.
Update: I have had this book for many months now and I’ve come to the conclusion that this book needs it’s own category: Cooking magic! “
The book is definitely long ingredient list category but most are spices. Individual spices are used in combination for the complex flavors. There are many regional recipes, variations and substitutions.

More from the Reviews ..” This is the most important review I will probably ever write… The pressure.
Since I bought this book I have made 20+ recipes, turned 10 or so people onto this book, vegans and meat eaters alike, all eager to try something new. But it really changes things for them. People in this country have the notion that we need meat, in order to sustain a healthy diet and lifestyle. Turns out, you don’t even need tofu! Bleh!
Beans and lentils and rice, all the veggies you could ever imagine, paired with the right spices, cooked in the right way, and your mind is blown. I was a home cook obsessed with quality before this book. Now I’m a wannabe Indian chef with a passion. I highly recommend this cookbook to anyone, whether you’ve honed your chopping skills or not. It’s NOT one of those books you flip through and decide to make a few things, only to forget about in a week. This book will enlighten you, and your taste buds.”
