Indian Vegetarian Cooking, by Sunetra Humbad and Amy Schafer Boger, M.D., is a good "starter" Indian cookbook because most of the recipes fill just one page. As many Indian cookbooks have very long, involved directions, I think this book's layout is less intimidating and easier to follow than most. It also has a few recipes I've never seen in other Indian cookbooks, such as Corn Chapati. Chapati are Indian flatbreads traditionally made with wheat flour. It was fun to try a corn variation for a change. The breads reminded me of Southern corn cakes, with a slightly more bitter flavor.
