This is often especially true of Indian cookbooks, and is enough to prompt anyone to reach for the takeaway menu - but don't dial! Award-winning author Monisha Bharadwaj has come to the rescue with her stunning new recipe book, Indian in 6. Indian food is one of the best-loved cuisines in the world.
