Over 150 Dishes from India and the Far East, including Thailand, Vietnam and Malaysia
Eastern cookery has never been more accessible in restaurants and for the home cook. Supermarkets now stock the key ingredients and many cooks have realised how simple yet utterly delicious food of countries such as Thailand, Vietnam and Hong Kong can be. 'Madhur Jaffrey's Step-by-Step Cookery' is an unequalled guide to the cuisines of Asia from the authority on the subject.
In a comprehensive introductory section Madhur explains the key ingredients and equipment, and demonstrates essential techniques - from de-seeding chillies to stir-frying - in step-by-step photographs. Key recipes throughout the book also feature step photographs, as well as Madhur's invaluable tips and personal anecdotes which convey her passion for the different regions and their food.
A simple dish of Potatoes with Mustard Seeds from India; Hot and Sour Prawn Soup from Thailand, fragrant with lemon grass and coriander; mushrooms stuffed with ginger and chicken, from a Japanese yakitori bar; delicate Vietnamese spring rolls with mind and crab - these are just a few of the tantalising recipes that fill these pages.
With Madhur's expert guidance, and clear step-by-step photography throughout, everyone can enjoy the same delicious results.
