Here is what some readers all across the world are saying about American Khichdi:


One of my friends told me about this book. I picked it up last week and read it on my flight to France. And I am glad I did! It is a very well written book and extremely engrossing. I highly recommend it.

Great book. A khichdi is what it claims to be, and a delicious treat it is! The author covers many different topics, and does each of them justice. I loved the chapter on NRI confessions its nice to finally know the truth about our NRI friends!

Excellent read! Although there were some parts that I could not relate to since they were typically Indian, most of the book has universal appeal. I thorougly enjoyed the writing style and the passion. The chapter on giving birth is funny as hell! My husband and I laughed hysterically as we read the author's descriptions of some of the nuttiness that goes on with pregnancy and giving birth. I am recommending it to all my friends and we are reading it for our next book club meeting!

I must say I have never read a juicier description of Indian mangoes anywhere else!! Took me back to my days in India and made me nostalgic about so many different things that I had almost forgotten about.

After a really long time, I have come across an Indian book that does not talk about weddings - thank goodness! A really intelligent book that makes you think, makes you laugh, and makes you wonder. Very thoughtful, very funny. Five stars!
