Reviews - What do customers think about Indian in 6: 100 Irresistible Recipes That Use 6 Ingredients or Less?
Wonderful Book Jan 9, 2007
Recipes are easy to follow and just as easy to make. Gave it to my husband as a Christmas gift and he loved it, since he does most of the cooking anyway.
Indian in 6 gets a one from me. Here's why.... Jul 23, 2006
I am not the most perfect person in the world but I believe in integrity. If you say that a book is whatever it is, that is what I expect and why I spent my money for it. This book is a dissappointment because the title is misleading...in fact, the whole premise of the book is untruthful. The book raves about the fact that it has no less than 100 recipes that have SIX ingredients or less. The truth is that the vast majority of recipes have 8 ingredients or MORE. I tried very hard to reconcile the title with what I was seeing. I thought to myself, "Well, it's an interesting book...a beautiful book...the recipes are nice..." I also tried to examine the recipes for some reason as to why most of the recipes were more than 6 ingredients. "Maybe she doesn't consider salt an ingredient....maybe she only means spices." No dice.
What I realized is that I'd purchased a book that was deceitfully misguiding me into believing that I would be able to produce Indian dishes in 6 ingredients or less than blatantly defied it's own premise.
As for the actual content, I think the book is nice enough although there are better books with better recipes, more variety of recipes and greater variety of options within each recipe catagory. I already several books on Indian cooking that far exceed the quality, both in design and content, of this book and there are others that I have not yet purchased but reviewed that are better still. Therefore, my only reason for buying it is the reason I will be returning it. I bought Indian in 6 because the book promised 100 or so recipes with 6 ingredients or less. To date, I have only found 5 recipes (although there may be more) that meet this claim and I feel betrayed. So back it goes. Very simply.
Nice book for the shelf Feb 1, 2006
Ttile of the book is "Indian in 6-100 irrestible recipes that use 6 ingredients or less". Most recipes require more than 6 ingredients and for me living in the northeast -most of the unusual ingredients are impossible to find. Saw author on morning TV news show promoting book and she cooked a delciious vegitarian chickpea dish. I cannot find that recipe in the book. Aside-the book is beautiful and will look nice on my shelf. I will try the vegetarian lentil dishes-they look good.
