The Fresh Tastes of India’s New Cuisine: A culinary ride through India – traditional food presented for modern palates.

Pros:

  • Slim book but all the recipes are distinct. Many of these you will come back to again and again.
  • Atul presents traditional food from different parts of India so there is a large variation in flavors. Although he is a celebrity chef, he has presented recipes for the home cook.
  • Many full page color photographs.

Cons:

  • This is not a teaching cookbook. There are only a few general tips discussed.
  • This is not an introductory cookbook. While the cooking style is suitable for home cook, the number of spices he uses is large.
  • There is no indication regarding what parts of the dishes can be made ahead of time
