A profound influence on my life. I left home for university clutching this book (thanks mum) and lived on many of the various dal recipes. It was a cheap and nutritious way to eat as a student. Many years and countless trips to the subcontinent later I now own some grander, more comprehensive collections of Indian recipes but this one is still closest to my heart.

Simple, delicious Indian inspired recipes using relatively ordinary ingredients. Everyone loves the food. My copy is dog-eared and stained, and the pages stick together.

I have the original version of this book, published in 1982 - its pages are well worn and smudged with turmeric and ghee – a tribute to its enduring appeal.
Indian food no longer has the mystique it had when this was written, but the recipes are still as enjoyable to eat and fail-proof.
I lived in India for two years and this is the book I used then — and still use — for authentic curries and side dishes.

Very old, very stained, and still one of my absolute favourites.
