Grand Ma's Old Anglo-Indian Cookery Book: This is the first book of My own family recipes. Anglo-Indian cuisine has dishes that are different from those of either India or Britain. This book with its recipes takes you back to the days of the Raj when families craved a taste of "home cooking". Recipes contained in this book are easy and practical to prepare like Pepperwater, Dry fry beef, Country Captain, Tomato Rice and many more. This is a fascinating peek into one woman's culinary heritage. Some of these recipes are old and traditional Anglo-Indian food cooked on stoves that were built with stones and mud, heated by wood and coal. I have been experimenting with them time and time again, and spent many hours converting them to suit modern cookery terms and kitchens. Many of these recipes have been handed down through generations of my family. Special Anglo-Indian dishes cooked at weekends in India and in the U.K. include Khicheree and Jhal Frezi, Kofta Ball Curry with Yellow Rice or Tomato Rice, Country Captain, Lamb Madras Curry, and Jeera Rice, Pork Vindaloo and Parathas. Soups: Chicken Mullgatwany, Mutton Bone, Pepperwater, Vegetables. Curries: Kofta-Ball Curry, Dry Fry Beef, Country Captain, Chicken , Lamb Madras, Jhal Frezi, Beef Gram Dhal, Masala Lamb, Lamb Rogan Ghosh, Lamb Do Piaza, Lamb, Pork Vindaloo, Pork, Prawn, Fish, Glassi, Mince and Peas and Chicken Stew. Side dishes: Devilled Lambs Liver, Brown Mince, Potato Chops, Prawn Masala Fry, Fried Fish, Fried King Prawns and Pepper Fry. Rice: Khicheree, Green Masala, Jeera, Tomato, Yellow, Chicken Biriyani, Sweet Pilau, Chicken Pilau, Jungli Pilau, Mutton Pilau. Chutnies: Kasundi, Tasty Tamarind Chutney, Devils Flame, Tomato Bhartha, Coconut Chutney, Kismur, Raitha, Breads, Sweets and Desserts. Christmas Fayre: Masala Tongue, Salt Beef, Cinnamon "Crumb" Chops, Roast Turkey, Mince Patties, Kul Kuls and Christmas Cake. Vegetable dishes: Dhal, Bughias and Starters.

We have known Dorothy for a couple of years and this year we bought a copy of her book Grand Ma's Old Anglo-Indian cookery which she kindly signed for us. Since we have been home we have tried about four of the recipes all of which have been excellent , so far our favourite is the Spicy Prawn Masala Fry. we have found the book very informative and easy to follow with some very good illustrations ,well done Dorothy.
NICE ONE DOTTY, WHENS THE NEXT BOOK DUE OUT??
Up to now I have had complete success and look forward to cooking and enjoying
Old Ma,s, er sorry Dorothy,s recipes.
