Indian cookbook recommendations

illus | Mar 2, 2009 02:24 PM

I'm looking for a good Indian cookbook - anyone got any special recommendations? I've had Madhur Jaffrey's "Indian Cooking" for a couple of years, and I think it's OK, but not great. I've found the spices and seasoning in a few of the recipes often didn't blend as well as I'd like, and that the recipes didn't really "come together" as I'd expect from someone who's regarded widely as an authority.

I'm not fussy about a specific regional cuisine either - a book which features nothing but Bengali food but has consistently good recipes would be far more useful to me than one that tries to cover the full diversity of Indian food and is patchy.

So, opinions?
