I was so happy to read that the blogger Diva on A Diet enjoyed Modern Spice and loved the "Hot, Hotter, Hottest Shrimp" recipe. Click to read.

An excerpt:

"Last night I dreamt of Chaat Masala. Really. And yet, its not quite as odd as it seems. You see, I've spent the better part of this weekend devouring Monica Bhide's wonderful new cookbook – Modern Spice. I'm reading it cover to cover and enjoying every blessed word. Modern Spice has been making its way around more than a few blogs this past week and the attention is well-deserved. Its charming, informative and altogether delicious."
