I am a graduate student in the United States, by definitionof which, I have to economize on both, the time and themoney I spend on cooking. Besides, an important factor in keeping a cheerful countenance is tasty (!) food. This is where Ms. Jaffrey steps in.Before I started using "Madhur Jaffrey's Quick & Easy Indian Cooking," I relied on a few recipes handed down from my Mom and my sister. Some of Ms. Jaffrey's recipes are refreshing renditions of old favorites (e.g. red lentil `tarka', whole green lentils with cilantro and mint, hard boiled eggs masala,...), and some creative delicacies, like fish in green sauce, and stir fried shrimp in an aromatic tomato cream sauce, simply grilled tomatoes,... ah, the list is seemingly endless!To give a sampling of Ms. Jaffrey's creative prowess in whipping up culinary delights, it is instructive to discuss a recipe that I recently used. `Fish in Green Sauce' (p.69) is a recipe that calls for cooking a green sauce made of onion, garlic, cilantro (the "green"), tomato, ginger, and lemon juice, and then simmering the fish steaks in the sauce. I admit I was skeptical at first. I am a cilantro devotee, and the thought of mixing cilantro and fish never ever occured to me (I guess this is where her creativity comes in). I have just one thing to say about the end result--wow!I think deep down Ms. Jaffrey is a sentimentalist. Her recipes are peppered with such homey, down-earth musings about her childhood memories as, "... I remembered how much I had loved it [fresh green mango chutney] as a child.
