Overview

Many regard curry as one of the new things in cookery. This is a mistake. Curry is an old, old method of preparing meats and vegetables. Nor is it an East Indian method exclusively. In all Oriental and tropical countries foods are highly seasoned, and although the spices may differ, and although the methods of preparation may not be the same, nevertheless, generally speaking, the people of all Oriental countries freely indulge in curried food.

However, in India curry reaches its perfection. The people of India since Vedic times have eaten curry and always will. They eat it very, very hot, and Europeans who live in India soon find themselves falling into the habit of eating very hot and spicy foods.

I bought this without much expectations for $5 but it still disappointed. The first chapter has a recipe for curry powder and then several options for using the curry powder but then we leave India for a "savory dishes from other countries." How any of these recipes have a place in an Indian cookbook beats me. In addition the recipes have poor instructions like "cook in the usual way" or "add water to the proper consistency." If I new the usual way or the proper amounts of ingredients I wouldn't need a cookbook. In conclusion, it is an odd collection of recipes many of which are poorly written.
