More About the Author


Two years ago Dan Toombs decided to take his family and a culinary journey. He decided to cook and eat only Indian food for a full year and to date hasn't stopped! Together Dan, his wife Caroline and their three children have worked together cooking both authentic and British Indian restaurant (BIR) meals each and every day.

Dan started posting his recipes and food pictures on his blog and before long was receiving invitations from top Indian chefs to visit their kitchens and to learn first hand their amazing recipes.

He has also been invited to speak and do cooking demonstrations at many of the most popular UK food shows including The World Curry Festival along side many of today's top celebrity chefs. Dan and his family have also been featured in The Daily Mail, The Mirror and The People.

In Dan's first book, 'How To Make British Indian Restaurant (BIR) Style Meals' you will be introduced to all of the curry house favourites. From chicken tikka masala to Chicken korma, Lamb vindaloo to lamb rogan josh, you'll find them all. These are all home tested recipes that taste fantastic!

Dan is currently working on his second Indian cookbook that will feature all of his favourite Indian seafood recipes. Feel free to ask Dan any recipe questions on Twitter.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Great Indian Cookbook bt The Curry Guy 9 Sep 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have been following Dan Toombs - AKA The Curry Guy - for just over a year on Twitter and have been eagerly waiting for this book. He finally published it! I think I might have even been the first to purchase it.

I love following Dan's curry blog and have already cooked many of his recipes. This book is a collection of his most popular British Indian Restaurant styles curries. Many of the recipes are on his blog though I've noticed some have been tweaked a bit. I made the chicken tikka masala, the chicken jalfrezi and the lamb rogan josh last night and they were all fantastic.

All of the recipes are well written and easy to follow. I love the way Dan encourages the reader to contact him via Twitter and Facebook if they have any questions about his recipes. I know from experience that Dan does answer questions regularly on Twitter.

This is not a book of traditional Indian recipes like so many other cookbooks. These are the recipes that so many of us know and love from restaurants and takeaways. Most of the recipes are backed with really nice pictures so that you can see what you are going to make.

So what are the negatives?

There aren't many. I think it would have been great if Dan had photographed every recipe. I think he photographed about 90% though the missing pictures are on his blog. A section on cooking utensils might have been good too though my standard pots and pans work just fine with the recipes I've made.

Now for the positives...

Great recipes that taste better than my favourite takeaway!

The book is nicely written and obviously well thought out.

The pictures make you want to try these recipes.

I highly recommend this book.

Excellent instructions and not requiring exotic spices, laborious techniques etc. The base curry sauce does take a little while to make a large batch, but you could comfortably get 10 or more curries from it.

After that, it's about as fast as throwing together a stir fry, but would be very difficult to tell the difference from a good takeaway (except that it contains a great deal less fat/oil).

Great money and time saver, with all the recipes you need to make everyone happy, from the mildest to the hottest tastebuds!

I have been married to a south asian for 40 plus years and have become well known and praised for my cooking. I have high standards and i have to say Dan's book is just an excellent example of how curries should be done. Dont hesitate to buy this book, i think its a must have book for amatures and even proffessionals looking to vary or improve their skills.
