Already got it dear chap, its where the tandoori chicken recipe came from on the link, love the photo's of the tandoors being made.

Ditto.  I purchased it when I bought my Tandoor.  I'm yet to try the whole Tandoori Chicken.  I did buy a couple of smaller birds one time but they were used for a standard roast. I've now put it on the isolation to-do list.

Even the thought of a whole bird hanging in the tandoor makes my mouth water, it

What would your list be today, T63, with the benefit of a further 13 years' experience ?

Can you name a quality Indian cookbook or two?

For me it has to be:

  • 50 Great Curries of India by Camellia Panjabi (even with the errors)
  • Indian Cookery by Madhur Jaffrey
  • Classic Indian Cookery by Julie Sahni
  • A Taste Of Punjab by Lali Nayar
  • Tandoor by Ranjit Rai (especially with the BBQ season upon us)
  • Indian Cookery, A Practical Guide by Dharamjit Singh

(Slightly re-formatted to make it more legible as an embedded quotation).

That is a searching question. Of the books I first named only the Maddhur Jeffrey still gets extensively used. I have my original BBC paperback that is now tattered, torn and stained and that goes into the kitchen with me. A clean copy of the same book resides on the shelf, picked up seemingly unused in an oxfam shop, and I have the large glossy format with pictures released by the BBC a few years back for perusing in an armchair.
Recently I have worked through a lot of Vivek Singhs book as well as some of the more recent authors and my Indian Cookbook collection consists of 130 plus books.

I think that the above list were the special books that I really relied on back in the day but, nowadays, I have certain recipes in a number of cookbooks to fall back on depending on who is around and what is available.
