There are a variety of editions and publishers of The Complete Asian Cookbook, although it appears that the recipes for the most part are unchanged between them. Please mention the edition you are using along with the page number when you report on recipes.

We'll use this thread for general discussion, and to discuss anything from the Introduction, Equivalents & Substitutes, and Glossary chapters.

Please post reports, reviews, and discussion of recipes in the appropriate threads:

India & Pakistan

Sri Lanka

Indonesia; Malaysia; Singapore



Cambodia & Laos; Vietnam

The Philippines




The Chowhound Team has asked me to remind you that verbatim copying of recipes to the boards is a violation of the copyright of the original author. Posts with copied recipes will be removed.
