The classic guide to the foods of India--and a James Beard Foundation Cookbook Hall of Fame inductee--from the "godmother of Indian cooking" (The Independent on Sunday). The book that introduced the rich and fascinating cuisine of India to America and a landmark work of culinary literature, An Invitation to Indian Cooking makes clear just how extraordinarily subtle, varied, and delicious the food of the subcontinent can be. From formal recipes for parties to the leisurely making of dals, pickles, and relishes, Jaffrey's "invitation" has proved irresistible for generations of American home cooks.
“The final word on the subject . . . perhaps the best Indian cookbook available in English." —Craig Claiborne, The New York Times
