This recipe is adapted from Madhur Jaffrey's World Vegetarian. I refer to this cookbook often, especially when I'm looking for new ideas as the book features over 650 recipes for various beans, vegetables, grains, and dairy. Madhur Jaffery is a renowned specialist in Indian cuisine, and accordingly her book contains an ample number of Asian recipes, though a wide range of regions and foods are represented. The ingredients used are readily available, the instructions easy to follow, and the majority of the recipes are quite simple to prepare, although there are plenty of ideas for special occasions.
Ordinarily I prefer cookbooks with lots of pictures, but the small insert of photos in the center of the book is more than compensated by the descriptions preceding each section and recipe, which includes serving and preparation hints, along with information concerning the origins and traditions of the dishes.
