    i really like this book. -easy to follow direction. -appealing photos as i have observed Indian cooking all my life, there are times i feel lost when adding ? amount of spice in dishes while cooking alone. after cooking with this book for a week ,i really appreciate how simple and inviting each recipe is to a beginner. i would recommend this book to anyone who is starting out in the kitchen in America.

Publishers Text

The premise is simple: with five common spices and a few basic ingredients, home cooks can create fifty mouthwatering Indian dishes, as diverse as they are delicious. Cooking teacher Ruta Kahate has chosen easy-to-find spices--coriander, cumin, mustard, cayenne pepper, and turmeric--to create authentic, accessible Indian dishes everyone will love. Roasted Lamb with Burnt Onions uses just two spices and three steps resulting in a meltingly tender roast. Steamed Cauliflower with a Spicy Tomato Sauce and Curried Mushrooms and Peas share the same three spices, but each tastes completely different. Suggested menus offer inspiration for entire Indian dinners. For quick and easy Indian meals, keep it simple with 5 Spices, 50 Dishes.
