9th Printing. From the cover: “A selection of seventy traditional recipes, introduced with a discussion of how the idea of currying food originated, of the many spices and flavourings used, and their often beneficial properties. Harvey Day points out that India’s curries are as varied as her peoples, and explodes the myth that a curry has to excoriate the palate to be good! Hot, mild or mellow, with rice or without, with bases of meat, game, fish, eggs or vegetable — the varieties of curry are almost endless. For each recipe are quoted the authentic ingredients (or acceptable substitutes for the more exotic ones) and the method in each case is here based on Sarojini Mudnani’s trial of the dish. Harvey Day gives recipes, too, for accompaniments like Indian Bread, chapattis and parrattas, and discusses the side dishes that are customarily served with curries and which most Europeans find it as hard to know what to do with as in appearance they are enticing!”
