The complete Indian housekeeper & cook; giving duties of mistress and servants, the general management of the house and practical recipes for cooking in all its branches
This guide gives a complete method for the mistress to administer her household. Staff duties are delineated clearly. The recipes, for the most part, try to transplant English culinary patterns to India, sometimes in an inadvertently funny way. For example, a recipe for macaroni states that it is "almost invariably ruined in India by being dressed with eggs."
