I’ve been craving Indian food big time lately. Luckily, I live in a part of Toronto that is close to an area with many Indian residents resulting in many Indian restaurants and grocery stores so I’m planning to slowly explore them all until I find my favourites and to scour the aisles of these grocery stores picking up exotic ingredients in an effort to teach myself how to cook the dishes that I’m craving.

Which brings me to Indian cookbooks. I’ve been searching the web for suggestions on the best, authentic, Indian cookbooks (that aren’t overly complex with pages and pages and pages of intimidating recipes) and after reading some online reviews, taking a “virtual peak” into some, and flipping through one in-person at my local bookstore – I think I’ve narrowed it down to the four above. You often read that cooking Indian food can be intimidating because of the sheer amount of ingredients needed but I’m excited to at least try.

Before living in India I’d never really eaten anything more Indian than a samosa. But, obviously, living there for almost a year allowed me to try things I’d never had before. And you know what, many of it I liked. A lot. I especially loved Hakka food which I discovered there too. Actually, I can probably now say that Indian food is one of my favourite types of cuisine.

Are you a fan of Indian food? Any Indian cookbook suggestions for me? I’m all ears!

I would try to find a cooking class in your area to start out (if possible). Indian food is my favorite (!!) even after living in Korea for 5+ years (and I LOVE me some Korean food) but I felt the same way about Thai cooking. The ingredient list is a bit daunting so when I was in Thailand, I registered for a 6 course cooking class and it made me realize how easy it actually was. Just need to get all the ingredients.

This book, 500 Indian Recipes, is great because every recipe has a picture. What I’ve made has turned out tasting authentic, and they have the caloric content for each recipe. http://www.amazon.ca/500-Indian-Recipes-step—step/dp/1780190611/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1353998790&sr=8-1

I have The Food of Morocco: A journey for food lovers, and really love it. Well written, nice photos, easy to follow directions. Let us know if the Indian version is good 🙂
