Yes, another of those books with numbers in the tile. From a series of books by well-known chefs. What I don't like about this book is that it looks like there's nothing new here -- all the recipes are repeats from other Jaffrey books. Which would be OK if the source were indicated on each recipe. Even a list of source books in the back would be better than nothing.

There are *only* recipes. None of the extra information about ingredients or techniques that you might like to have is there.

But it seems to be a good selection of recipes, at least I recognize a number of favorites from my other Jaffrey books. I feel a bit cheated, but if you had to have only one Indian cookbook, this might be a good choice. Maybe.
