  1. Thank you Suvir, I have had a look round some of the site and there is so much to see that I could spend hours here!! Have you seen the Spice is Right cookbook Suvir? I just wondered what you think of it?
  2. My favourite is garam masala and sour cream chicken bake with tandoori naan mmmmmmmmmmmm The bread did take me a couple of tries to get it right but that was my fault for rushing! Thanks for the welcome Suvir. I'm afraid I don't have a link, the magazine changes their reviews every month so I don't think it's there anymore. They do a lot of cookbook reviews though so if anybody wants one done, I can get to keep the book LOL I grew up in UK, and Indian food is actually the most popular food there. The closest Indian restaurant to me in USA is actually 6 hours drive away so I had to learn how to cook it myself and this book was my first attempt. My favourite food growing up was chicken tikka masala and popodoms. Some of the recipes I've tried from the Spice is Right are: Jhinga Curry Corn and Rice Pilaf Onion Toast Spicy Cakes Stuffed papad Indian chex Mex Indian bread stuffed with cawliflower Yogurt curry with lentil dumplings I've tried more but there are just so many in there that I still have lots to do. I think the fact that the book has a section explaining all the spices and herbs used in each recipe was a big help. Some of the names of the recipes differ slightly from what I knew them as but this section helped me to "feel" the taste. My kids missed Indian food too and the best part of cooking from this book was to be told by them (in amazed voices!) that it tasted "just like home!"
  3. Hi. I was lucky enough to be asked to review Monica's Spice is Right Cookbook for the magazine internationalwoman.net and I found it very easy to follow, even for a novice like me! I grew up eating Indian food but it's not available where I live now, so this was a new thing for me to try but all the dishes turned out authentic. My question for Monica is....when are you bringing out your next book?
