New Cookbook-- Madur Jaffrey's World of the East Vegetarian Cooking
I just bought this cookbook from the used bookstore and its from the early 80s and I'm incredibly excited about it! I love middle eastern cooking (especially Indian) and this book is ripe with recipes that I can't wait to try. Does anyone else own this book and have any favorite recipes from it??
I just got this cookbook a couple of months ago with a borders coupon...unfortunately, I haven't made anything either...there are a lot of recipes...overwhelmingly so.
I'll admit I have a cookbook problem... I buy them, get all excited, then never use them....I promised myself I would not get anymore until I make most of the stuff from ExtraVeganZa...but this thread reminds me of my other cookbook failure...I would love to hear recommendations from this, too.
I have this and it is always the one I turn to when I am making sushi. I have also made the tempeh recipe--goreng something or other--and a couple of other things as well. I find I don't use it as much as her bigger vegetarian book but I know that everything I've made I've liked.
I have this and her World Vegetarian book but I must confess that I've not actually cooked anything from either save for a cuke salad with kalongi (little black onion seeds that I went out and bought especially for!). In my defense, my fella cannot stand the smell of Indian cooking (strange I know!) so I rarely cook it when he's around.
There are a lot of bean pancake recipes in there, which sound brilliant and I hope one day to do one of those!
