About the Author
Laxmi Khurana is an Indian housewife living in the UK. The recipes which she features in this book have been handed down to her through the generations.
Every recipe has been a stunner so far. We get a recommendation from someone who is on their third copy from using it multiple times a week.
A treasure of a book. If you can’t stand heat, though, be warned. After several attempts my husband went from a whole pepper, to half a pepper, to none, and it’s still plenty spicy with just the spices.
Like, the previous reviewer, I too have used and loved this recipe book for almost twenty years. And I second everything she’s written about it. It appears very simple and unassuming, but that belies the excellence of the recipes. My old book is looking a bit ragged, so I came to Amazon in hopes it was still available. Very happy to see it is, and that Laxmi Khurana has another follower.
