Inspired by a train journey between her parents' home towns of Kolkata and Chennai, India Express is a collection of 75 south Indian and Bengali recipes, and Rukmini Iyer's seventh book. The first thing I made from it was Chingri Macher Malai, spiced prawns in coconut milk, which took minutes to prep, simmered quietly for just under half an hour, and was perfect on buttered white rice. Semolina pancakes were similarly successful. This collection follows Iyer's wildly successful roasting tin series, rightly considered cookbooks for our times. What was it about them? Accessibility? Minimum fuss/maximum flavour? Layout? Trust in the likable, reassuring person who guided you through? All of the above - which, together with more personal material than her previous work, makes India Express a must-have. - Rachel Roddy, The Guardian 'Best Books of 2022'

I am a huge fan of Rukmini Iyer's Roasting Tin cookery books, but her new one, India Express, is my favourite yet... an absolute joy of a book - India Knight, Sunday Times

The most delicious things I ate this year were 'chop' from [Rukmini Iyer's] India Express ... The book is a practical and inspiring delight. Iyer brings her trademark clarity and fuss-free instruction to some of the South Indian and Bengali recipes she ate growing up. It's veg-leaning and full of flavour. I have used the book a great deal and am keeping it in the kitchen because this is the kind of food I want to make after Christmas indulgence. - Niki Segnit, author of 'The Flavour Thesaurus' and 'Lateral Cooking'

An instant classic - Felicity Cloake, author of 'Red Sauce, Brown Sauce'

It's beautiful, remaining true to Rukmini's accessible, flavourful and innovative style - Alice Slater, author of 'Death of a Bookseller'

Effortless innovative cooking and banging flavours - Angela Hui, author of 'Takeaway'

Full of realistic, delicious recipes - Bethany Rutter, author of 'Welcome To Your Life'

Beautiful and mouth-watering - Robert Elms, BBC Radio

Amazing, simple but really flavoursome curry recipes - Trish Halpin, 'Postcards from Midlife' podcast

Packed with great ideas for quick-to-prepare dishes with some punchy flavours - Madeleine Morrow, London Unattached

Absolutely brilliant - clever, speedy, manageable - India Knight, author of 'Darling'

This is Rukmini's best book yet - Stuart Heritage, author of 'Don't be a Dick, Pete'

There are plenty of punchy flavours here and the beauty of this kind of cooking is that it requires so little preparation. - Constance Craig Smith, Daily Mail, for ‘The Green Roasting Tin’
