This cookbook represents a comprehensive collection of over 70 traditional vegetarian recipes. They have been handed down by indentured immigrants from India by word-of-mouth and practical example for over four generations. From delightful snacks to dinner-party specials - each recipe has been kitchen-tested and, therefore, meets a high standard of accuracy. Some of the dishes are beautifully illustrated in color to tempt your appetite.
