I received this book, written by Raghavan Iyer, a few years ago as a gift when I was just starting to know Indian food. It is very good and calls for no convenience products, in spite of what the title might lead you to think. I often make the pakoras, and my friend whose parents are Indian says they are better than his mom's (!!!). I often make the mulligatawny and bring it to work for lunch, where a lady I work with who immigrated from India says the soup is perfect. And don't get me started in the recipe for saag paneer.
Has anyone else tried this book? What do you think?
