I need an instant pot! I may have to invest in one.

The paperback version of this cookbook has gone straight on my wish list too.

It starts with an introduction to “the diversity of Indian cooking: regions, spices and kitchen basics.” It includes an excellent glossary of spices, herbs, fats and oils and an in-depth guide for using an instant pot.

I do love to cook Indian food and I definitely enjoy eating it! This book has totally inspired me to try making my own pastes and I look forward to trying out some of the mouth-watering recipes featured. I’m reviewing the kindle edition and the black and white photographs look delicious so I can imagine how enticing the colour versions would be.

I have never tried traditional Indian breakfasts, but I love the sound of ‘steamed rice & lentil cakes’ and ‘cracked wheat breakfast pilaf’ to name just a couple of recipes.

I pretty much like the sound of all the recipes in this book to be honest, including the naan bread which sounds amazing.

If you love to cook and are a lover of Indian cuisine then you need to add this book to your collection.

Many thanks to the author and to Rachel @ Rachel’s Random Resources for my kindle review copy. I highly recommend.
