Bought Monica Bhide's Everything Indian and Suvir Saran's Indian Home Cooking today.
More later, when books get delivered.
The books arrived!
And the cover of Indian Home Cooking is even better look then what you see on amazon.com.
The colors are just so fresh and indian and also have good feel and look. Book looks more like table top book for design accent. I know gf will want to decorate side table with the book. I have quickly read through book. Could not stop myself from wanting to see all photographs. One more better than the previous. It beats Methome actually, I hope I do not get Suvir into trouble with editors there. Both very different really. Book is competing at same level as the bigger name chef books, I am sure Suvir pay more money for photograph then he makes from book. It will make big difference. I showed my neighbor the book and he could not believe this was Indian food. So different from restaurant and other book stuff he said. And yes so true.
Monica, thanks for so many recipes. I will give your book to colleague that want to see the books I rave about. I get into trouble with gf if I give away both books. I know she wants to see them too. Methome story has made us very proud. Thanks.
Will cook from books and say more later. You all make us proud.
Suvir, your book will have us hungry, you write well (with Stephanie) and share good stories about your dishes. And your food is like home food we eat as my family traveled all across India and Middle East. Thanks.
