The run-off was close (Sahni 'won'), but let's do both books! Hopefully yamalam won't want to shoot me when she has to come up with the threads - and hopefully it won't be as complicated as the Vietnamese month was to do so. Yamalam, I promise to help if you want it!
The month we did Vietnamese - with two excellent books by two authors was one of the most successful months, if I recall correctly, so October should be just as great.
I think it's wonderful that we're finally doing Indian cuisine after three years of COTM. Both books seem to be readily available used on-line.
