Review:Meena Pathak Celebrates Indian Cooking

Meena Pathak's Complete Indian Cooking book I received somedays ago for review. I tried couple of recipes at home and must say that the book is really good. the author has covered recipes from all parts of India which I really like. Even though her family owns and runs Patak Masala (Paste ), she has many recipes which does not require you to use or you are rather not forced to buy and use their ready made masala's which I thing is a good sign as I am never happy if I am forced to use a particular brand masala or ready made masala for the curry or dish I make. I like to prepare my masala's which she explains too. She explains the whole cooking process for each dish in detail so even someone who has just started cooking can make a dish with a ease.
Overall I am very happy with the book and think the author has done a wonderful job from starter's to main entree's.
About the Author:Meena Pathak OBE was born in Mumbai, India. She trained in food technology and as a chef with the prestigious Taj hotel group. In the late 1970s, she married Kirit Pathak and they began to grow the family's spices and pickles company in England. Today, Patak's (they dropped the "h") is the UK brand leader in Indian foods, exporting to over 40 countries. A tireless ambassador for Indian cooking, Meena travels the world demonstrating authentic recipes as well as spending time in India researching new ingredients. Meena Pathak Celebrates Indian Cooking, a tribute to 50 years of Patak's, is also published by New Holland. Meena lives in Bolton, Lancashire.
Pros: Book will take you step by step in creating some mouth watering recipes
Cons: None so far
Overall: Good Book
Books can be purchased at Amazon
