It is about knowing those little tips and tricks that you discover, once you have made it a bunch of times. This cook book provides a short cut from all those failed Sunday dinners trying to recreate your favorite Indian dish.Unlike many other cook books on the subject, this one does not pretend to portray an elaborate overview of Indian cuisine but sticks to the basics.

This is done not only by providing recipes but also by explaining the most common mistakes, cooking techniques, essential ingredients etc.
