ANGLO-INDIAN DELICACIES - VINTAGE AND CONTEMPORY CUISINE FROM COLONIAL INDIA - REVISED EDITION


EBOOK VERSION CAN BE ORDERED FROM AMAZON.COM
 
It gives me great pleasure to bring out this revised version of ANGLO-INDIAN DELICACIES. The immense support and encouragement that I received from people all over the world has encouraged me to bring out these Recipe Books of  typical authentic Anglo-Indian Dishes.
ANGLO-INDIAN DELICACIES' is an interesting assortment of easy- to- follow Recipes of popular vintage and contemporary Cuisine of Colonial Anglo India. It covers a wide spectrum, ranging from typical English Roasts and Pasties to mouth watering Gravies and Curries, Pepper Water, Fries, Pulaos, Savouries, Sweets, Christmas treats, etc. picking up plenty of hybrids along the way. A few home brewed wines are also included to round off the extensive flavours and tastes.
 
In this book I’ve endeavoured to cover some of the old typical dishes that were popular in Calcutta, and other parts of Bengal besides Central and Eastern India. Dishes such as Pork Bhooni, Chicken / Meat Jal Frezie, Devil Pork Curry, Calcutta Cutlets (Kobhiraji Cutlet), Fish Kedegeree, Double Onions Meat Curry (Do Piaza), Meat  Glassey (Glazzie ) or Fruity meat Curry, Meat and Spinach Curry, Duck Dumpoke, etc, are some of the old favourites featured here. I’ve also included some recipes for dishes that were popular during World War II and were served in the Army camps and Officer’s Mess, such as the Army Camp Soup, Brown Windsor Soup, The Bengal Lancers Shrimp Curry, Veal Country Captain (Cold Meat Curry), Bubble and Squeak, One Eyed Jack, Colonel Sandhurst’s Beef Curry, Salted Tongue, Salted Beef, Corned Beef, Kalkals, Rose Cookies, Dhol Dhol, Beef Panthras, Potato Chops etc have been given a new lease of life, besides a host of other assorted dishes and preparations.
This Recipe Book ANGLO-INDIAN DELICACIES is an easy and unpretentious guide to delectable Anglo-Indian Cuisine. The easy-to-follow directions make cooking these delicacies, simple, enjoyable and problem-free. Anyone who follows these recipes will turn out dishes that will truly be a gastronomic delight besides having a rendezvous with History.  As with my earlier books, this Recipe Book will make a useful addition to a personal Anglo-Indian Recipe Collection
The recipes in this book are simple and easy to follow and only easily available ingredients have been suggested. The easy-to-follow directions for preparing these old, popular, sumptuous dishes make cooking simple, enjoyable and problem-free. The pungency of the dishes can be reduced according to individual taste by reducing the amount of chillie powder, spices or pepper powder suggested in each recipe. 
All the recipes in this Book are for 6 generous servings. If cooking for a smaller or larger number, the quantities should be adjusted accordingly.
The word “Everlasting” means ‘something, that once created, endures through time and never ceases to exist’. Anglo-Indian Cuisine is “EVERLASTING” and will endure forever and ever.
