About the Author...
Ron Timmins, an Anglo-Indian who lives in Perth, Western Australia, was a former Detective Sergeant in the West Australian Police Force. In addition to his Police job he also ran a popular family-owned restaurant, Green Coriander, with his daughter and son-in-law where he was the main Chef. The restaurant specialized in Anglo-Indian cuisine, which is essentially a fusion of flavours from the days of the British Raj in India.
Ron was chosen to represent the Perth region in the finals of the 2015 WA Signature Dish Competition organized by the Tourism Department and Channel 7, Perth, Western Australia.
Since the sale of the restaurant, Ron has transferred his cooking skills and now produces ready-made curry pastes, pickles, chutneys and sauces. The pastes, sold under the name of Jackson's, are completely ready to use and a boon for the lazy cook or busy professional.

The evolution of the Anglo-Indian community
It is a common misconception, even amongst the Anglo-Indians, that the genesis of the Anglo-Indian was purely from British parentage; this is not necessarily the case. An Anglo-Indian was initially defined in the unabridged Oxford English dictionary as: a “domicile European”; and, also, “of mixed European and Indian Parentage”.
The First European settlers to reach the shores of India were the Portuguese in 1498, some 100 years before the British. The other Europeans to follow the Portuguese were the Dutch, the French and then the British.
The British initially came to the Indian shores in peace as merchants and traders but soon colonised the country; thus making India part of the British Empire. The British East India Company was established and the British became the most dominant European culture, as a result.
The British rule of India, which was commonly known as the “British Raj”, continued until India gained its independence on 15 August 1947. During all this time, the other Europeans existed and remained in India alongside the British. It was only inevitable then, because of the settlement of the Europeans in India, that a new community of people would emerge: the Anglo-Indian.
The Anglo-Indian was born into the dominant British culture and, as such, spoke English from birth; was educated in English at English speaking schools; were Christians – either Catholic or Anglican; and were more ‘Anglo’ than ‘Indian’ in their nature, which was illustrated in their habits, dress and thinking.
Soon enough the Anglo-Indian cuisine evolved.
