Product Description

Book Description

According to the Food Standards Agency, Indian food is the UK's favourite cuisine. In the latest keynote survey, retail sales accounted for 42% of total sales of ethnic foods and was valued at GBP250 million. It also found that the Indian food industry in the UK is worth GBP3.2 billion, accounting for two-thirds of all eating out, with about 2.5 million customers served every week. The latest keynote survey reported that curry fans spent GBP480 per minute in supermarkets and a leading supermarket sells 1.1 million packets of chicken tikka masala each year. Sunil Vijayakar's Fresh Indian, published by Hamlyn, has sold over 50,000 copies worldwide.

Two hundred tasty curry recipes in a handy compact book. Great for both beginners and more experienced cooks. I love the wipe clean cover because I am a messy cook! It also includes an excellent vegetarian section. All the recipes I have tried so far have been delicious. Favourites in this house are the Creamy Tandoori Chicken Kebabs and the Chicken & Baby Spinach Curry.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I am a big big fan of curries and to my shame have only ever home cooked curries from sauces produced by the likes of Sharwoods, so it was nice to see such an accessible and economic cookbook. This volume in the excellent Hamlyn '200' series features recipes for side dishes, starters and curries arranged in sections based on the main ingredient i.e. poultry, pork, beef, lamb, fish and seafood, and vegetarian. This is my first bone of contention as I would have much prefered to see a book arranged by geography i.e. India, Pakistan, Thailand, Malayasia etc. which aligns itself more with my experiences dining out - in some cases I am unsure where the curry originates from in the absence of any introductory text. I'm not asking for a Rough Guide, just a clue! I will note that some curries are described as Vietnemese or Carribean but the reader cannot assume where no such description occurs that they are Indian (the - perhaps debatable- spiritual home of the curry?). I said 'first bone of contention' only because I liked the sound of it, in fact there is very little else to fault with this compact collection given the price tag. If I was clutching at straws I would suggest that perhaps some of the ingredients might be hard to find and that using thai pastes is a bit of a cop-out - I know how complicated some of these pastes can get but you would expect a cookbook to be showing how to make the base pastes from scratch just for the record (even if you then rely on pastes). Yes that is hypocritical of me I guess, given my opening sentence, but my whole excitement of owning a curry cookbook was slightly dampened when I saw pastes were being used in some of the recipes.

I have an ever-expanding collection of these Hamlyn books which I find very useful for quick after-work meals. That is perhaps less true of this book as the cooking times for some dishes can be lengthy. Recipes are drawn from around Asia.

After a brief but good introduction which describes the various ingredients including spices, aromatics & pastes, the book begins with a small selection of starters, including light salad-type dishes as well as samosas, etc.. There is a lovely recipe for spiced courgette fritters which can be prepared quickly, or pea & potato tikkis which will take about 50 minutes to prepare & cook, or very quick tandoori chicken kebabs (though they won't have the proper flavour as they are grilled).

For main courses, one chapter covers chicken, many of the recipes being for commonplace dishes although there is an interesting Swahili recipe (total cooking & prep time about 2 hours although this is mainly oven-cooked so you aren't standing over the pan all the while). Another recipe which takes a while is the aromatic pork belly curry but this again is mainly slow cooked in a low oven. Another chapter covers lamb, again including commonplace dishes like rogan josh but also a Caribbean lamb dish and Malaysian rendang lamb using a butterflied leg of lamb.

Fish & seafood are covered too with offerings such as spiced mussel curry, spiced halibut curry or Keralan prawns. Vegetarians will find plenty of recipes, for example, okra & coconut curry, baby aubergines with chilli, creamy spiced mushrooms, curried tofu with vegetables or Thai pumpkin curry. There is also a range of accompaniments including probably eight or ten rice dishes, a few noodle recipes and several breads such as naan and paratha, finishing off with a few chutneys & pickles.

Format: Paperback
I very simple to follow cookery book. Brilliant explanations, the curries always turn out how they look in the book.
The only thing I would say is that make sure you read the preperation details first as I have been caught out by some ingrediants needing to be marinated for quite a few hours. All in all very good.

I have a whole series of Hamlyn cookery books and I think they're excellent value for money. They're packed with useful information and ideas with no wasted space. I'm particularly impressed with the amount of colour photographs, one for each recipe, and that's vital for me. I have to have an idea of how the final dish will look and I enjoy seeing how the food should be properly presented.

The book is broken up into 7 sections:-

starters
poultry
pork & beef
lamb
fish & seafood
vegeterian
side dishes

plus; a useful introduction into the more obscure ingredients, for example:- white poppy seeds, kecap and amchoor.

There's something here for everyone, whether you're an experienced cook or a beginner. There's a huge mix of recipes from simple (spicy pork patties) to complex (coconut clam curry). The recipes, ingredients and methods are set out in a way that's incredibly easy to follow but; some of the ingredients aren't available in the usual supermarkets and it's a good idea to source them before you decide to cook (palm sugar, Burmese fish paste, black mustard seeds, Thai basil, banana leaf, nigella seeds, white poppy seeds, fishballs, kecap asin, pea aubergines, brown mustard seeds, belacan, asafoetida). You don't need to rush out and buy them all, they only feature in some of the recipes, but just be aware that you they do crop up from time to time.

One of my favourite recipes is marinated lamb chops, not very original, but this particular marinade in gorgeous. We also enjoy chicken and baby spinach curry and chicken makhani which is hot, spicy and rich. Fabulous little book and it just goes to show you don't always need a celebrity chef to endorse a product.
