Sadly lost: Madhur Jaffrey Indian cookbook

rebecca18, Feb 8, 12:34am
I have owned a wonderful Indian cookbook by Madhur Jaffrey for many years, it is very well used, very stained and now has gone walkabout? Despite the fact that I have used the book so often and love it to bits, I cannot remember the title and am hoping that some kind cook out there can prod my memory. It is a medium-sized soft cover book with a photograph of the author on the cover, she is holding a large paper bag, like the old supermarket bags, full of various vegetables. If you know the name or, even better, have a copy that you would like to sell, I would be forever grateful for your assistance

No takers? Really, I can't believe I'm the only one who has been using this marvellous cookbook. I challenge you to look on your bookshelf and see if it is hidden away gathering dust. It definitely does not deserve to be gathering dust or to be lost.

google/google images if you you really want it :)There are a few that come up and I don't know which one you are after :)

I remember watching her cooking prgamme on Sky - was one of my favourites! !

Good luck finding the book :)

I have these three titles: M J's Indian cookery (1982); Eastern vegetarian cooking (1983) and A taste of India (1985). None of them have a picture on the cover like you describe, sorry.

That's the one I have - same ISBN, different cover illustration though. I am happy to list it if you are sure it's the one you want.

Wonders will never cease, someone I thought I may have loaned the book to, but who said she hadn't borrowed it, decided to look on her bookshelf. What do you know? It was there, so I am absolutely delighted and obviously in no need of further help from you kind people. I would delete the entire thread if I knew how but alas I do not. Thank you anyway.

By the way cloudberryIt was the 1982 version, so it sounds as though your book is the same but with a different cover. Can I suggest that you do not sell it, use it instead, it is a fabulous book, truly. It is very easy to follow despite the fact that the recipes often have a lot of different ingredients and take some time to make. Thank you again everyone, I really appreciate your efforts :)

I used to use it heaps in the 80s, then for some reason I stopped using it. I agree it has some great recipes in it and thank you for reminding me that I own it! I might start using it again.
