I have to start this review with the caveat that I am a bit of a cookbook geek. I will happily spend hours on Amazon looking at all the amazing cookbooks that there are and wishing that I had them. So I came up with the brilliant idea of setting up a wish list and adding the ones that I want to it. What a list that is!

So needless to say when my birthday comes around I get a cookbook or two from my nearest and dearest and like my mum told me it is purely selfish thing as she gets to try what I make. I got Anjum’s Indian Vegetarian Feast for my birthday last October and I have not stopped making recipes from it since.

If you like Indian food and we vegetarian then you will absolutely love this book, it includes loads of gorgeous images to inspire you too. All of the recipes are well written and easy to follow, trust me I have made a lot of them. Cooking Indian food in one of my favourite things and this book has really helped me to develop my skills and work with different techniques to make the perfect curry. Keep an eye out for my Friday night curry recipe which will be coming soon, I just need to remember to take pictures instead of just eating it.

This book is an all round winner with recipes like Paneer Tikka Masala, Bengal Tiger Lentil Curry, The best Coconut Black Bean Curry ever and something I am yet to try is the Indian spiced French Toast for breakfast, pictured above, yum! Trust me if you are looking for amazing Indian food with clear easy instructions then get this book today, it will not disappoint you.
