Why an "eBook"?

Check THIS for yourself
Is it cheaper for YOU!

You don't need a Book Holder to balance your `Hard Copy' Recipe book on your bench top and clutter the place up now, do you?
Think of saving those family secrets? Well, eBooks are the most convenient for storage which will be brought out just for cooking, not for `decoration on the shelf'. It IS HARDER for ME to create as one has to have a reasonable knowledge of `computer lingo'.
It is also more expensive to get printed as a "Hard Copy" just so that you can fill up your bookshelf! You don't have to find room on your bookshelf as well. to join the other "hard copy" books gathering dust. Just insert the CD/DVD into the PC, or any other device that can open the eBook.,Then all you do is select your recipe, print it (If you want to), prepare the dish and enjoy! That's all there is to it!

Check what's in EACH eBook, before you decide!

Curry Mad III is a collection of Sri Lankan dishes that have been prepared right here in Melbourne (Australia).

CM5 Spicy Vegetarian Ideas

The long awaited CurryMad `SPICY VEGETARIAN IDEAS' has arrived!
This is a collection of new and old non-dairy, non-meat, non-poultry and non-seafood ideas from this website for you to try.

A note to remember is that `Spicy' does not automatically mean `Chilly'; It is essentially a method of preparation and a different flavour using different ingredients.

It is suggested that you experiment with these ideas to come up with your own version of a `Spicy' dish.

Have fun and Good Luck.

    Ceylon is famous for its quality tea, and even though the country's name was changed from Ceylon to Sri Lanka in the 1970's, the tea is still known as "Ceylon" tea. However, you hardly hear of a "Ceylon" or "Sri Lanka" curry, even though a curry is an integral part of most meals in the country.

    There are "Sri Lankan" restaurants in most Western countries around the world these days, but, typically when one thinks of a curry, it is mostly associated with India, of which there are quite a number of restaurants around the world as well. There are quite noticeable differences between the two types of food, and there are also differences within each country's regions.
