Indian Cuisine

If you were allowed to own only ONE cooking reference on Indian cuisine, what would it be? Warm regards,

Lori

Verry, verry tricky.

But, on consideration:

Indian Cookery by Dharamjit Singh, pub. Penguin Books, Harmondsworth, M*I*D*D*L*E*S*E*X (we are going to have to have words about this Elf), ENGLAND

Also, if you are of the alternative disposition, at 40 West 23rd Street New York, New York 100010 (USA).

Unlikely to be in print, or that the addresses are right. If you have no luck at all and wish to continue, PM me.

Regards,

I would consult Yakuta. She's enough for me.

Anytime I'm looking for for an out-of-print book, I always go to www.abebooks.com and run a search. The website acts as broker, sort of like eBay, but there aren't any auctions. You can even register a free account with them, and when the book you're looking for becomes available, you'll receive email notification. You can also keep a "want", as they call it, based on subject, or author, as well as by title.

If I've violated the TOS by posting a link to this website, please delete my post.

LOL Darkstream - there's nothing I can do about that - you were very creative though.

There are two that I would recommend:

Charmaine Solomon - Complete Asian Cookbook. It covers all the Asian cuisines and the Indian section is quite elaborate. I love that book.

Sanjeev Kapoor - Khana Khazana a clebration of Indian Cookery - He is a chef that hosts numerous Indian cooking shows for Indian audiences (so you know his recipes are authentic).

I like Madhur Jaffrey's writing style and recipes but she is not as good as the first two I suggested.

Thank you Mudbug :-) for your faith in using me as a resource. Personally I use my grandmother and mother as my resource :-) but then I have been exposed to that cooking all my life and for me the best food is one that is cooked with lots of love and labor.
