Here’s some reviews about Quick Vegetarian Dishes, from the experts:

“The great cuisines of the world, many of which are largely vegetarian, are the basis for Kurma Dasa’s latest collection of recipes, presented in a clear, concise style and appealingly illustrated with lots of color photography. Quick Vegetarian Dishes is colorful, healthy (and easy-to-prepare) food that’s perfect for everyday cooking – even if you’re not a vegetarian.”
(Australian Gourmet Traveler, February 2001)

“While Kurma may be the high priest of vegetarian cuisine, you don’t have to be a vegetarian to enjoy his cooking. Quick Vegetarian Dishes is fresh, original and delicious! This book, Kurma’s third, offers an eclectic and exotic assortment of inspiring, easy to prepare vegetarian dishes, as well as some scrumptious fruit-based recipes and desserts. A delight for the gourmet.”
(The Canberra Chronicle, December 2000)

“I really enjoy Kurma’s no-frills, no gimmicks television show. His enthusiasm for vegetarian food is infectious. He has already written many successful books, but, as the name implies, the emphasis here is on making quick and easy meals. Quick Vegetarian Dishes is packed with color photographs of virtually every dish. Highly recommended.”
(Brisbane Courier Mail, December 2000)

“The recipes in Quick Vegetarian Dishes were collected with busy people in mind, and they really are dishes that can be prepared in a hurry. And the selection – and presentation – is enough to sway any meat-lover.”
(Noosa Daily News, Feb 2001)

“Kurma Dasa is one of the world’s most high profile vegetarians. . . In Vegetarian World Food, by Kurma Dasa, vegie fans will find recipes from Asia, the Middle East, Europe, the Mediterranean and the Americas.”
(04/08/02 Sunday Territorian)

“Through his classes at Drysdale Tafe Tasmania I’ve formed a much greater appreciation of Kurma Dasa than I ever did on TV (must be something to do with actually tasting the food). Best known for his Indian cooking, in Vegetarian World Food Kurma collects favourites from all over the world – the Mediterranean, Middle East, South-East Asia, the Americas and some from the rest, with India most represented. The flavours are strong and varied. In a Kurma Dasa spread, there’s no sense of something lacking. I’ve tried the Panir, home-made cheese (use Pyengana Real milk for best results) and the Deep-fried Milk Fudge Balls in Rose Syrup, so feel safe in assuming the rest are as good as they look. Confirmed vegetarians will love this, and so will those trying to have more meat-free days or to eat more vegetables.”
