Hot Pink Spice Saga is subtitled "An Indian Culinary Travelogue with Recipes". And that is quite right – the book is more a hilarious recounting of Peta Mathias's gastronomad tours of India as photographed by Julie Le Clerc (who is also an accomplished cookbook writer). There are recipes too – but only about every 5-10 pages. The photography is lovely.
If you would like a bit of a laugh while learning more about India and its cuisine I recommend this book to you.
I scanned one recipe to give you an idea of what the food is like. Here it is!
