Tantalizing, exquisite, and remarkably original dishes from a talented and imaginative master chef.
Ismail Merchant draws on is childhood memories of exquisite Indian food to create quick, delicious meals. Included here are tasty, fast-coking meals delivered in clear, easy-to-follow recipes, along with Ismail's insider anecdotes about films and stars. A wonderful book by a brilliant and passionate cook.
It is an exemplary work and one of the most original departures from what you normally expect a book on Indian cooking to be. It is not national. It does not deal with traditional concepts. And it is not regional. It is simply one man's inspired notion of what his native land's food should taste like. It is tailored to his own sophisticated and remarkably original palate. And e recipes are easy to follow. - Craig Claiborne
