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.

Hi Everyone,

Just to let you know, I had long since stopped selling the ebook with Alex (who is now big into Chinese food and has a successful You Tube channel).  Alex and I were once thought to be one and the same but I can assure you we live in different parts of the UK, although I have met him once in Glasgow when I travelled up from Shropshire.  It was me that wrote the book, with Alex's input.  We will hopefully be putting out something similar for Chinese food, but that's another story.
I had indeed donated the ebook to Les, to sell as proceeds were going to charity, however he wasn't getting much from it so didn't hang on to it.  At that point I thought the whole thing was done, but I still get the very occasional request.

Now, in 2020, I still make the curries and enjoy them greatly.  I also loved Panpot's recipes and yearn for more!  I now use a 45kw gas burner and having high heat output has changed my results for the better (I got it mostly for Chinese cooking but clearly it works well for Indian curries too). 

Nice to see the forum is still going, good luck to everyone using the ebook! :)

Martin

Not I.  I believe that at least one forum member has a copy, but whether he or she might be willing to share it I have no idea.
