My husband brought this book back from a shop in Lahore called Ferozson's a few years ago. I looked through it and the recipes didn't appeal to me at the time. I recently picked it up again and some of the recipes had me intrigued.
The recipe I picked for her was Russian Salad (a version by the same author is here). This cheered her up no end. She found all of the ingredients, made the dressing, peeled the veg and once I'd boiled the carrots and potatoes and helped with chopping, mixed everything together.
While she cooked, I used this recipe to make a Chicken Jalfrezi. Everyone loved it.
Little Lady's dad loved her Russian Salad, so much in fact that he gave her £5. You can bet she wasn't grumpy after that.
