Yumm and easy to make recepies. I tried some and it came out really well. Thankyou Chetana for the lovely book. The Cardamom trail is on the way! One can completely trust this book for good, healthy and easy to make recepies.
I love the fact this book has such a diverse selection of dishes to try, but also that it suggest accompanying dishes that go well with one another - this gives you a lot of choice about the flavours you can put together.
Instructions are clear, ingredients are simple to get hold of in most supermarkets, and the pictures are great too.
A finely balanced indian cookbook, finally! I've been looking for something like this for ages. Follow Chetna's Youtube channel (Food with Chetna) too because she's cooking some of the dishes you see in the book.
What I love most about Chetna's recipes is that they are always full of flavour, and they are always practical to make. One of the great things about Healthy Indian, is that many of the recipes come with variations: different ways to serve staple recipes like tarka dal, or tomato curry, among many others. I also love Chetna's practical advice: don't have the exact quantities of the five lentils for dal? Well, just mix and match, the dish will taste different, but that's no reason to agonise over exact weights and not make it! The recipes all use staple ingredients of any kitchen that regularly cooks Indian food, nothing difficult to find. And most important of all, everything bursts with flavour, without the addition of a crazy amount of salt. I'm so grateful to Chetna for her hard work in making this book, and thoroughly recommend it!
This book is an excellent cookbook for those who are intrigued by Indian cooking and would like to give it a try. The book has numerous easy to follow recipes with nice picture illustrations. There’s something for everyone from vegetarian dishes, to fish dishes and chicken dishes. There’s also a section on chutneys and pickles and on Indian sweets. She also shows us how to make delicious Indian salads that are mouthwatering. I like her introductory chapter where she describes in detail what brought her into cooking in the first place. It’s very inspiring. This book is excellent value for money and is highly recommend.
I have all 3 of Chetna's books and was so excited to get my hands on this one! It has great recipes for every occasion. I made the Peppercorn and red chilli chicken tonight, my son loves it! The recipes are easy to follow too. Making the red kidney beans curry tomorrow....another family favourite!!
This book now sits as a group of 5 Indian cookbooks on my shelf. The second of Chetna's collection. Yet this is now the first I open up. So far every recipe I've tried has been a huge success, and I'm excited to keep cooking more. As someone who knows Indian food quite well, it's got the right level of difficulty to make it both accessible and different.
Really enjoying cooking from this book. Like Chetna’s other cook books the recipes are very well written, and not difficult to make. The chicken and potato in pickling spice is a particular family favourite, and so easy to make. Highly recommended, and I suggest you get her Chaat, Chai and Chutney, and The Cardamom Trail too, the Masala Chai cake is to die for.
