Cookbook Review:: The Three Sisters Quick and Easy Indian Cookbook by Kaul

The Three Sisters Quick and Easy Indian Cookbook 
Author:  Sereena, Alexa and Priya Kaul
Publisher: Simon and Schuster UK
Pages: 160
Pub Date: June 2013
Format: Paperback Cookbook

Drawing on a lifetime of passion for food, The Three Sisters have brought together a second collection of traditional recipes, tailored for quick and easy preparation

Combining speedy one-pot curries, tasty dishes, and snacks inspired by their mother's and grandmother's recipes, this beautiful cookbook also incorporated the authors' own experience of delicious Indian street food. Once readers have the sisters' recommended selection of essential spices listed in the front of the book, they can easily make a myriad of fabulous meals, delectable desserts, and fragrant treats. This collection is perfect for busy people who love cooking and do not want to compromise on authentic Indian flavors.

I've actually never had Indian food before I got this cookbook. Crazy I know. I'm living in Scotland! Indian food is the go to take away food. I'm American though and we tend to go south of the border for more Mexican foods. But, I wanted to give Indian a try.

Let me say first and foremost that this is probably the more simple and easy cookbook I have ever owned! There is a small section before all the recipes which gives you some quick tips on how to prepare your foods early and have things at the ready for a fast and easy cook time. I loved this! It made an Indian novice like myself get it done fast.

I wanted to make Street Corn-on-the-Cob {Bhuna Huva Maki}and Dry Green Beans {Sukhi Hari Rajmah} first to give the Indian spices a try to see if I even liked them. I was afraid I wouldn't, but oh boy did I! I don't think I will ever eat my vegetables plain any more. I'll be adding spices to shake things up. Both dishes were uber simple and easy to make.

I would definitely advise purchasing The Three Sisters Spice Kit that they have for sale on their website. I had to go to 2 different stores to get all the spices I needed. I would have rather just got the kit and known it has everything I will need to make anything in the cookbook. It is worth it.
