Book Description

16 Feb 1995
130 dishes from the most popular areas of India: Delhi and the Punjab, Kerala, Gujerat and Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Bengal and Goa. Recipes include: Kashir Rezala, a Bengali Muslim dish using goat meat, lemon, milk, yoghurt and saffron; and Goan Bebinca, cardamom flavoured layered pancakes. Delight in the rich flavours of such tantalizing dishes as: Dosas (crispy rice pancakes stuffed with various fillings); Shukto (a vegetable curry made with bitter gourds and flavoured with mustard seeds, nigella, fenugreek and cumin); Appams (a dosa-style pancake with a mixture of tomatoes, onions and chillies as the topping); or Prawn Caldin (king prawns cooked in highly spiced sauce using coconut and fresh coriander). Sample the handed-down secrets of many an emperor's kitchen, the regions' experts or the ordinary villager's humble, but equally delicious, repertoire of home-cooked dishes. Readers can discover the history and culture unique to each region in this illustrated book, and savour the aromas and subtle spice blends of the Indian subcontinent in the cool comfort of their own kitchens.

5.0 out of 5 stars Take a gastronomic tour of India 27 Jan 2001
By A Customer
I absolutely love this book! I have a huge collection of Indian cookbooks and yet none as much loved and used as this one. I have yet to find another book on Indian cuisine which gives me not just the recipes but takes me on a gastronomic tour of India. This book is so readable that it is more often on my bedside table than in my kitchen. Forget all those standard curry books where most recipes come from the northern regions of India. If you want a real taste of all of India, you must buy this book! Highly recommeded!

As above I watched a repeat of a very early tv series and decided to buy this book. It is one of the best books I have. Authentic curries on every page.
