Here I present: Madhur Jaffrey’s मधुर जाफरी, “Step-by-Step Cooking: Over 150 dishes from India & the Far East”, 2000 a cookbook by the Indo-American Television chef.
Think of India & China as a dichotomy of two “culinary zones” (to understand this diverse collection of 150 different recipes).
1. “India zone” is: India, Thailand, Malaysia & Indonesia is a Hindu diaspora.
2. “China zone” is: Hong Kong, Vietnam, Korea, Philippines & Japan is a Buddhist diaspora.
