ISO Indian Cuisine cookbooks

I love Indian food. I love the aromas that permeate the whole house. I love the complexities and merging of the varied flavors.

I need a a cookbook. Optimally, it would be a book available on Kindle. Or two books, or three. I want to explore the cuisine, but I need a map! I can already do the basics; chicken tikka masala, sag paneer, even naan (although I nearly burned the house down with that one!).

Dance like no one’s watching, sing like no one’s listening, but cook like EVERYONE is eating!

Madhur Jaffrey is the Queen of Indian cooking. Her recipes are pretty approachable. She has written many books.

Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.

India - The Cookbook

It's a comprehensive doorstop of a book with great technique tips and pics.
Forget love... I'd rather fall in chocolate!

In 2011, I bought a book called "50 Great Curries of India," and decided I would make one recipe from the book every week for an entire year. All told, I think ended up making something like 38 of them (there were a few I made more than once), and ended up learning a lot about Indian cooking and the different regions in the process. It's still one of my favorite cookbooks.
