Did you wonder when I would ever get to this book? It is the last in my collection. It originally belonged to my daughter, who was not using it. So she let me take it.
It was the title that got to me. When I first began cooking seriously, I started with a cookbook called Easy Gourmet Cooking in 30 minutes. I wish I still had that book. I would certainly not have tried Indian cooking without the promise that it could be done quickly.
In this book, the editor, Neeta Datta, has gathered 70 recipes from 10 master chefs of India. “This collection of quick and easy recipes” she promises “will enable even the laziest cook to prepare a lip-smacking Indian dish in less than 30 minutes and even turn a reluctant and timid cook into an amateur chef.”
