Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Marina's onion bhajias

    • Ganga108 on January 10, 2021

      This should be "Marina's Onion Bhajias". Very delicious!

  • Pumpkin flowers with cheese

    • Ganga108 on January 10, 2021

      Christine notes that zucchini flowers and nasturtium flowers can be used. Fresh mozzarella, feta, cottage cheese or ricotta can be used to stuff, and I imagine that freshly made paneer could also be used.

  • Sweet & sour tomatoes

    • kmattingly on November 21, 2012

      Extremely easy and one of the tastiest dishes in this book.

  • Black pepper chicken fry

    • Melanie on May 31, 2014

      Great heat and flavour.

  • Masala eggs (Mutta kakkathil)

    • Melanie on May 31, 2014

      Flavours were nice but I wasn't a big enough fan of this to repeat.

  • Andhra curry-leaf chicken

    • debkellie on July 02, 2013

      Really easy, really tasty, really quick!

  • Pumpkin curry

    • debkellie on June 16, 2015

      This was excellent: I subbed in packaged moist flaked coconut in place of fresh coconut flesh..certainly didn't detract from the dish.

  • Egg curry with potatoes

    • Debkelliemember on February 18, 2014

      Having a glut of eggs, decided to try this one (despite bad memories of school meals and egg curry). A flavoursome sauce, with a nice texture from just softer than hard-boiled organic eggs from our free range girls. I dropped chillies back to 2 and it was still pretty fiery (personal learning curve with chillies). But way better than school meals recollections of "egg curry", but not sure it's a repeat recipe.

  • Gujarati spicy dal

    • Melanie on May 31, 2014

      Really good flavours and fairly simple to make.
