'WINNER OF THE BEST VEGETARIAN COOKBOOK 2014 (THIRD PLACE) FROM THE WORLD GOURMAND COOKBOOK ORGANISATION.’ CAMERON STAUCH - RENOWNED CHEF AND TRAVELLER says: ”On a visit to Chennai, I was fortunate enough to meet a fantastic cook and author Viji Varadarajan. She spent the afternoon with me explaining the subtle nuances of a pure vegetarian Brahmin kitchen and household. For lunch she presented a sumptuous feast of close to 20 different dishes served on a large banana leaf. There were so many standout bites but one in particular summarized her style of cooking. A simple long bean kari, accented with curry leaves, grated coconut and a few spices. It was vibrant, full of life, understated yet complex much like Viji herself.”

Not a good read in kindle app Chapters may be included so that a recipe is easily found out otherwise a good vegetarian book
I'm from Japan but I cook South Indian food everyday because my husband is a Tamilian. This morning I cooked Vendaikkai Puli Kootu from this book and it was awesome! Thanks so much, Viji!! This book will be my new Kitchen Bible!
I grew up in a traditional south indian home where my grandmother ran the kitchen. After having migrated to the US, I have craved those same dishes that I grew up eating as a child. This book is easy to follow for a novice like me with easy to follow recipes, beautiful pictures of the end product and exact measurements. I like the subtle nuances that other cookbooks don't offer including specifics on portions, what the dish is traditionally served with and exact measurements. I'm a big fan of this author and a recently converted vegetarian and I firmly believe it is a must have in every vegetarian's kitchen.
