The Spice Is Right

Contributed by: Jennifer Wickes

Book Review: "The Spice Is Right: Easy Indian Cooking For Today" by Monica Bhide.

The Spice is Right
In "The Spice Is Right," you will find traditional Indian dishes, as well as Western dishes with an Indian influence. There are healthier versions provided, as well as sample menus and tips. This book is excellent to the beginner cook in Indian cuisine.

I found that the recipes were easy-to-understand and the ingredients were easy-to-find. Ms. Bhide also provided a list of sources in case you live in an area where you cannot find the ingredients. She also provides a substitution guide. For example, if you cannot find amchoor (mango powder), then you can use lemon juice instead!

There is also a section on the description of common herbs and spices used in Indian cuisine, as well as what types of food are found in each part of India and who influenced them. I found this very interesting.

Delicious recipes you will find in this cookbook are: Peppered Cauliflower Florets, Dry Chile Chicken, Fiery Pork, Coriander Layered Potatoes, Saffron Fruit Custard and Watermelon Juice.

With over 150 recipes to choose from, the list of resources to find your ingredients, sample menus, healthy alternatives and much more, who could refuse to learn more about Indian cooking with Monica Bhide's cookbook!
