    This review is from: Curries and Bugles: A Memoir & Cookbook of the British Raj (Paperback)

    If you want a book on Indian cuisine that is unlike any other, do not hesitate to get this book. It is a treasure. It earned an IACP award in 1990. Fascinating to read from cover to cover for its stories on the British Raj and full of receipes that are intriguing and delightful. These are not the same receipes that you will find in Madhur Jaffrey’s books since they are derived from British influences on the traditional indian dishes, such as tea-time and weddings and club dinners. A must have for anyone who is fascinated with India and Indian cuisine.
