To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Don't want to comment on how good or bad the book is - because I'm not an authority in the cookbook domain. What I definitely have a grouse with is the title of the book and the blurb or synopsis provided which is misleading.
When I purchase a book titled 'Everyone can cook' what I'm expecting is some variant of Cooking for Dummies. That, this Vikas Khanna work is definitely not. Most of the recipes given are highly esoteric dishes which you'd only be able to order in a gourmet restaurant or a 5 star hotel. Most of them would also involve ingredients which would be extremely difficult to source as well for an Indian audience. It is very difficult to make these in a normal Indian kitchen unless you're preparing for Masterchef auditions. In fact they should have titled this something like 'Pre-Masterchef must do's'!
Also,putting it out there for future potential buyers - not too many Indian recipes. Plenty of recipes involving the meats which are generally not available/ eaten in India as well.
