The author sums it up:
“I eat Indian food often. As someone who worries about where my food comes from and tries to avoid GMO produce, this comprehensive an approach to healthy ingredients in Indian Cuisine, is a delight as well as a relief. If you haven’t been to Lotus in awhile, or have never been, it’s a must-try.”
