Jasmine In Her Hair by Huma Siddiqui is so much more than a cookbook. It is also a cultural lesson and an art book. A proud and loving Siddiqui pays homage to family, culture and cuisine in this stunning book filled with sumptuous recipes and grand tour of the author's beloved Pakistan.

If you love to try new foods and enjoy cooking, Jasmine In Her Hair is the cookbook to try. And vegetarians will enjoy the selection of meatless meals. You may not keep this book in the kitchen but display it proudly on your coffee table for everyone to enjoy.

Some of the recipes I read and/or tried that were especially appealing are:

- Potato Patties (Yummy!
- Aloo, Gobi aur Matar ki Sabzi (Potatoes, Cauliflower and Peas Curry
- Aloo Keema (Ground Beef with Potatoes) Can you tell I love potatoes yet
- Cholay (Spicy Chickpeas
- Matar Oykai (Rice with Peas
- Masala Chai (Spice tea) Ah, this is so fine
- Shahi Tukra (Pakistani Bread Pudding) This is my favorite!!
