Product description

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.

I was born and brought up in India. A Child of the Raj. When I came across this book by chance on Amazon I had to have it (bought three) and on trying out the recipes like Pepper water, country captain, and glassy, to name a few I was so glad I did. I had forgotten these recipes, but now I have them and all the other fabulous dishes back in my life, thanks to Mrs Dorothy Pearson. My children too have tried out dozens of these dishes, and these dishes are all just like our wonderful cook used to serve up. Ah! those were the days. I also received a wonderful Christmas card from Mrs Pearson all the way from India what a lovely touch. Thank you. I highly recommend this fabulous book to anyone who likes a milder version of Indian food that was so very cleverly adapted for the English pallet. Off to try the Kul Kuls now :-)

What a splendid cookery book - the way it is written reminds me of times gone by when grandmothers/mothers/daughters use age old recipes handed down over the years. The receipes are easy to follow and it is like "Grand Ma" Dorothy Pearson is actually helping you through ... even the slightly ambitious receipes turn out a treat. I know what I'll be buying as Christmas presents this year. Well done Dorothy Pearson a little bit of history in my kitchen.

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.

Having borrowed and read this book while on holiday in Candolim this year, I could not wait to come back to the UK and buy this book to try the cooking out for myself, I have read the book from cover to cover and am now waiting delivery so we can try the food we have read and dreamed about. We met Dorothy and she was kind enough to lend us the book, it's fasinating reading and very straight forward, i've even bought Indian cooking pots,and brought them to the UK just to experiment with these aged old recipes. Many thanks to Dorothy for opening my eyes on how easy indian cooking can be. Old traditional cooking at its very best. Best wishes and much success with this and future books, Stav... PS your garden is as colourful and lovely as ever..

This book is a delightful trip down Memory Lane, especially for those with associations with India and even for those who simply like delicious food - a good example of early fusion cuisine which reflects the exchanges and impact that Eastern and Western cultures had on each other. The instructions are clear, focussed on simplicity and well augmented by useful descriptions and colourful, mouth-watering, illustrations. The large print and thoughtfully considered layout are easy on the eye. Whether a novice cook or a seasoned chef, culinary serendipity beckons. Highly recommended!

We met Dorothy this year in Goa and bought a copy of Old Ma,s Cook Book.It looked so straight forward that I have been inspired to cook from her recipes, and this from someone who previously was a complete philistine in the kitchen.
Up to now I have had complete success and look forward to cooking and enjoying
Old Ma,s, er sorry Dorothy,s recipes.

I received this book as a gift & i love it. It's easy to follow & the dishes i've made turned out beautifully. My favorite so far is Anglo Indian tarka dhal - it's the best ever! Looking forward to any future books this lady writes.I've up rated this item as i've made a few more dishes that are so gorgeous it's rude not to!
