Description: Sisters Rani King and Chandra Khan have made it their mission to bring the wonderful tastes of the Orient into our homes, by passing on their secret family recipes. Having lived in many different countries, and experienced the best cuisine in each, they are able to share with you not only sensational recipes but also a flavour of the different lands and cultures.
Rani and Chandra encourage you to fill your kitchen with the wonderful aromas of dishes like loin yum kung, a clear spicy shrimp and lemon soup with its contrasts of hot and sour flavours; char siti, roast or barbecued Chinese pork marinated in hoi sin sauce, sweet sherry and sugar; Sri Lankan beef smoore, tender meat gently braised in coconut milk; succulent Chinese jewel fish in lemon sauce, which is a feast for the eyes as well as the palate; rati djala, lacy Indonesian pancakes that visually echo the ornate mouldings found in Oriental temples; Indonesian grilled chicken with its lovely buttery crust and tantalizing spicy smell; and muscat, a Sri Lankan sweetmeat that is delicately flavoured and fragranced with rose-water and cardamom.
Whatever you choose to cook, the process should be fun and effortless.
