Description: Explore a new world of hot and spicy food! Curries, a four-thousand-year-old tradition of cookery with exotic spices and tropical ingredients, originated in India and spread throughout the world -- and are at last being discovered by American cooks. This varied and colorful cuisine includes the fragrant yellow curries of India's Punjab, -- the orange and green curries of Thailand, -- the incendiary red, black, and white curries of Sri Lanka, -- the powerful curries of North Africa, -- and the amber curries of the West Indies, redolent with allspice. 

Organized geographically, A World of Curries features such mouthwatering dishes as Tamarind Chicken in White Curry Sauce, Biryani from Peshawar, Red Curry Cambogee, Lamb Curry from Sumatra, Nigerian Coconut-Curry Soup, Curried Prawns in Pineapple Boats, Capetown Curried Lobster Tail, and Pork Colombo from Martinique.

In addition, there are recipes for accompanying breads, pickles, chutneys, and salads, -- instructions for grinding your own spices and making such basic ingredients as curry paste and ghee; and a list of mail order sources. Filled with food history and lore, this cookbook will take you on a guided journey of discovery into the tempting and exotic world of curries.
