The Noon Book of Authentic Indian Cookery is a highly illustrated culinary journey around the great continent of India.
'Curry' is popular in many countries in the world – the classic dishes on offer, such as chicken tikka, chicken biryani, mutton roganjosh, are legacies of the Great Moghul emperors who ruled India for 300 years from the early part of the 16th century. The lavish patronage of these magnificent monarchs gave cooks the leisure and incentive to perfect their skills and raised cuisine to an art form. Creamy kormas, tender kebabs and spicy pilaus first created in the imperial kitchens have now become an international taste.
The recipes in The Noon Book of Authentic Indian Cookery are quick and easy versions of these great dishes, as well as those dishes that have evolved or been invented since.
In the north of India the Moghul influence is evident, with meat and chicken being popular ingredients. To the east, where rivers and seas abound, fish is plentiful, mustard plants are grown and rice is cultivated;. further south the country becomes more tropical – the Portuguese brought Catholic influences to bear here, and vegetarian dishes are popular.
Illustrated throughout with evocative photographs taken in India, and with photographs of the dishes themselves, The Noon Book of Authentic Indian Cookery is a celebration of the varied and sumptuous cuisine of a fascinating country.
