Maybe it's just a question of taste, but the recipes didn't work for me. I love garlic and onions, but some of her recipes had so much of each I doubt it would have worked. One of the veggies recipe I tried, with eggplants basically, was simply horrible. After 5 hours of cooking on low (as per instructions), it was not completely cooked. So I let it cook longer, but it still tasted terrible. Definitely not worth buying in my opinion. I do not recommend.

I kept borrowing this and making some of the recipes. Copied some down, but kept wishing I had 'that other one for...' Finally broke down and bought it myself.

I'd say it's overall healthy (lots of legumes, nothing processed), not too expensive (though the meat based dishes would of course cost more than the vegetarian ones), and tasty. Many of them are easy to put together too. A couple of the recipes that I've made that use potatoes seem to need longer to cook and/or have them chopped into very small pieces.

Difficult terms and Indian names of things. Hard to understand.

The recipes I've tried have been fantastic, and my veggie-ambivalent husband agrees. Will probably buy a copy for the home library.

Only 4 1/2 stars, as I've not tried too many dishes and can't speak for a great deal of this book but the ones I've tried (2) have been wonderful - keeping my crock plugged in and at the ready. A great deal of these recipes are vegetarian, and a few restaurant favorite meat dishes have their own chapter - with meatless options offered for most of them. It's a definite if you've never tried Indian Cooking before.

So far, this is a really wonderful cookbook! I made the Punjabi Kidney Bean Curry (chili), and I was amazed that I was able to make something so delicious. The flavors were so complex, but it really was simple to throw together. I want to buy this cookbook now!

I waited several months to borrow a copy of this cookbook and really, it is worth the wait. In fact I have already sent for a copy from Amazon for my own cookbook library. AnupySingla doesn't pretend to be original in every recipe but shows us how to prepare favorite N Indian fare in the slow cooker. Some S. Indian dishes are also showcased, which as a huge fan, I really liked.
If you like Indian food and love the convenience of the slow cooker, go for this book.

Made the Butter Chicken and Cauliflower and Potatoes from this - both were fabulous - but would feed a family of 8.

Next time I will cut the recipes in half for us.

The tantalizing scent of the butter chicken had the household salivating from the moment we put the dish together to put into the crock pot.

Also made the chicken Curry and it was equally delicious!

I am going to have to buy this book!

Unlike morebooksplease, I found the recipes in The Indian Slow Cooker really tantalizing -- some very simple, straight-forward recipes but very mouth-watering. And while it's not a vegetarian cookbook, there are plenty of vegetarian dishes, which is nice.
