Surprisingly, it’s all incredibly simple and even the fist-time home cook can make anything in the book with relative ease” said Shabu. “People are moving away from pre-packaged foods, rolling up their sleeves and getting back to the home cooking traditions we haven’t seen for two generations. I know that authentic Indian cuisine is something most people want to try, but have nowhere to turn to for guidance. This book gives them all they need to bring their favourite Indian restaurant dishes into their own house.”
