Details: Product Description Madhur Jaffrey is the authority on Indian food and is known and loved for her knowledgeable yet accessible writing on the subject. The Essential Madhur Jaffrey contains all her most popular recipes in one volume, including everything from delicious meat and fish curries to vegetarian meals and recipes for chutneys and pickles. Based on a broad range of regional Indian cuisines, the recipes have been selected to provide meal ideas for all kinds of occasions, from quick after-work meals to more elaborate dishes for entertaining. Informative introductions and notes on ingredients and equipment give fascinating background information. This is a classic collection of Indian recipes from the world's leading authority on Indian cooking. Amazon Review Is Madhur Jaffrey essential? The answer to that must be "yes". Few writers can have contributed so comprehensively to a transformation in public eating habits and expectations. Madhur Jaffrey has done much to encourage discrimination where Indian food is concerned, in a career spanning 25 years, all the way back to her ground-breaking Invitation to Indian Cooking of 1974. There was a time when, outside Indian restaurants, what was passed off as curry was a terrible undifferentiated molten brown slurry, infested with rags of meat and harsh with the scent of cheap, stale curry powder (let us not speak of the sins that were committed in the restaurants). Maybe in places it still is, but at least there is now no excuse. The Essential Madhur Jaffrey is a generous compilation of about 200 recipes from throughout her career-- her favourites, she says. They certainly deserve to become anyone's favourites. Soups (not really Indian, these, but Anglo-Indian), snacks and starters, meat and fish curries, vegetables and dals, together with all the accompaniments of bread, rice, pickles, chutneys and relishes, and a choice selection of sweet dishes such as halvas, make up a wonderfully varied collection, presented with Madhur Jaffrey's customary precision and enthusiasm. As always, her food is an absolute delight to cook and eat. The current edition is one of a series of elegant, practical and durable paperback reissues from the Ebury Press: very handy indeed in the kitchen. It deserves to become battered and stained with much use. -- Robin Davidson Review "Her name is spoken in reverential tones wherever good food is enjoyed" ( Daily Telegraph) "Madhur Jaffrey's style of writing simply gets you excited about cooking" ( Tandoori Magazine) About the Author Now regarded by many as the world authority on Indian food, Madhur Jaffrey is an award-winning actress and bestselling cookery author. Her first book, An Invitation to Indian Cookery, was published in 1973 and her series for BBC television Madhur Jaffrey's Indian Cookery made her a household name. She has appeared in over 20 films, including Merchant Ivory's Heat and Dust, and written over 15 cookery books, including Madhur Jaffrey's Ultimate Curry Bible (2003), published by Ebury Press.
