Rekha Sharma has covered many aspects here starting from basic masala powders collected from all parts of India. She has covered bread and crepes( dosa and chilla etc), soups, and salads. Wide variety of recipes. It is a lot more than just breads and crepes. What I really liked about this book is the dishes from every part of India.
I understand that if I buy a book whose name is the Big Book of Indian Breads, it is because the main topic is Indian Breads. Since this is not the case in this book, I think they have deceived me. The book consists of 90 percent Indian cuisine and 10 percent about breads. I wouldn't buy it if what I'm interested in is learning about Indian bread. No pictures only recibes.
This is advertised as a book of Indian bread recipes. This is a lie. It's a general Indian cookbook without a lot of depth. About a fifth of it is concerned with breads. There are better, more in depth books on thesubject.
I bought this book because I love indian bread and also wanted to surprise my indian friends with my cooking skills (which really aren't that great) and they really loved it. I know they weren't lying because they actually asked for the recipe to compare it with theirs. I'm not the best cook or baker in the world but the instructions are really straight forward everything is well explained. There are a lot of recipes to choose from and not just bread-related things, the author also teaches you how to make your own ghee, yogurt, spices (absolutely love the masala ones my god). It's all very exciting for indians and non indians alike. Great gift too especially now when we can’t really go anywhere because of the covid… Anyway, a big thank you to the author for this book, and I’ll be buying the rest in the series.
