For consideration: Sri Lankan curry recipes written in Thai by a non-native speaker, translated to Russian via intercepted semaphore, and then printed in English by the lowest Chinese bidder? Not predictable in terms of volume or result. And it doesn't help when you learn mid-cooking that you have no rice. Tasty, though.
