Title: The Glasgow Indian Takeaway Recipe Book by Alex Wilkie
Post by: Panpot on September 13, 2015, 05:24 PM
Hi been a good few years since I was on the site. Delighted to see it still going strong. I put a good 30 years into searching for the Glasgow Curry taste and between this wonderful place and my visit to the Ashoka and the recipes I gathered there (posted on here)I found it. The secrets I Found were the bunjarra and the fried garlic ginger paste with turmeric. These added the moorish thing that was missing in all other attempts. So I had no need to return and just got on with it. Now out of curiosity I came on today and found the Glasgow base which I have made and it tastes rather nice so hopefull of it blending in well. I have attempted to find the eBook by Alex Wilkie to add to my collection but can't find it anywhere. Can anyone help? I will be most grateful. Keep up the great work one and all, thanks

Nice to see you're back here, Panpot! :)

I, for one, still rate your Ashoka recipes and your Jaipuri, along with the G/G paste and bunjarra, are still very much regulars in this house.

Can't help you with the ebook, sadly. Alex seems to go by a variety of aliases and he's put a lot of his recipes up on this forum and on YouTube. There may be a link to his ebook on YouTube.

Welcome back, PP -- you have been much missed.  Regarding Alex Wilkie's e-book, I am informed by "sources close to the author" that "You can get the current PDF version directly from Martin (whynot) for £2.50 via PayPal. He can be contacted using the following address: [email protected]".

Received my copy of the book this morning. Only had a quick glance, but looks very interesting with a lot of techniques that make sense. Got high hopes - can't wait to try some this weekend :)

The book is fantastic, it produces a very good Glasgow curry, the base is basic and very easy to make, just follow the recipes to the letter and you cannot go wrong

Looking forward to it. Although I grew up as a kid/teen in Glasgow/Edinburgh, my parents were never into "spicey food" (and still stubbornly refuse to even try an korma as they "know" they won't like it!) so I've never tasted the Glasgow version. Will be intrigued to see how it varies from round here (Leeds/Bradford) and my fairly generic "national" style ones that I currently make which are probably based on bits of recipe from all over :)

Hi DhoklaFan,
I can help you here, Martin informed me the book was donated to the Administrator of another, more recent curry forum. I had to donate 5.00 Australia dollars to a chap called Leslie Jones.

I am currently working my way through this book and I must say the curries have turned out wonderful. It seems less is more with this method.

Let me know if I can help.
