Useful Resources for the Khoji Cook

I love the internet and the public library. If it wasn’t for the internet I would have never been able to find any East African recipes (ok, i’m exaggerating). In my search for recipes, I have found that the Ismailis have the most recipes out there and their cooking is very similar to the cooking I was brought up with and they seem to have documented them well. Here are some links and books that have some great recipes. If you know of any others please do share them too. Enjoy!
