Book Description

1 Oct 2010
In India, a curry is any dish whose sauce is flavoured with a harmonious blend of spices. In this deliciously spicy book, Anjum Anand, recently voted Personality of the Year at the British Curry Awards, presents an eclectic choice of her favourite curries. These include regional dishes, favourite restaurant classics and many original creations - in all, 50 great curries and 25 accompanying dishes. As with all Anjum's recipes, they are written to suit a lighter, healthier way of eating; but every dish bursts with the flavours of India. Some are hot, some are mild, although all can be adjusted to taste. Some are simple one-pot curries while others recreate the multilayered flavours of restaurant classics. Divided into chapters on Fish and Seafood, Poultry and Game, Meat and Vegetable curries, there is a final chapter featuring the usual accompaniments: vegetable side dishes, breads, rice, chutneys and raitas. This will be the essential book for all lovers of Indian food, whether they are confident cooks or novice enthusiasts.

4.0 out of 5 stars A modern day Madhur Jaffrey? 1 Nov 2010
By marmite
With two TV series and now three Indian cookery books under her belt, Anjum Anand is surely doing for this generation what Madhur did for the home cooks and curry lovers of the 80's.

Where the first two books covered curry house favourites and many Indian dishes with a British twist, I Love Curry showcases traditional dishes from regions throughout the subcontinent as well as Anjum's own light and healthy creations.

Anjum explains what makes a curry's flavour unique to its region, shares the secrets of making great curries, helps us understand how to bring spices together and demonstrates how to create an authentic Indian menu no matter what your cooking ability.

The recipes are well written, the ingredients lists manageable and each dish is accompanied by a short introduction - highlighting Anjum's own favourites, describing the region from which the dish originates, offering hints and tips on making the dish your own or providing an overview of how the dish tastes, what to serve it with and how quick or easy it is to make.

The photography really brings the book to life and what is fantastic is that there is a photograph for almost every dish. Cookery book publishers take note - we like and need plenty of photographs!

I Love Curry is a very well-conceived book and one I will be turning to time and time again for quick work night dinners and weekend feasts with family and friends.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unconfrontational Curries 11 Nov 2010
When our son was still very little, we began feeding him curry. This was for two very good reasons, as the both of us like little better than a great curry and the thought of it being off-menu because our son didn't like it, was too great a sacrifice. As a consequence and one would hope, needless to say, we had to endure some fairly uninterestingly quiet and well-behaved curries but it was worth it, as today our son is as much a curryhound as the rest of us.

So, when the opportunity came up to take a look at Anjum Anand's new book "I Love Curry", of course I jumped at the chance. I already had confidence in Anjum Anand, having seen her cook on the t.v. and having already made dishes that carried her name beside the recipe.

It's a jolly book, with recipes that fit well with the brightly coloured cover. It carries a classic layout, being divided up into sections such as meat, fish and vegetable, so no difficulties there. The photography, by Jonathan Gregson, is particularly enjoyable with most dishes depicted (except maybe the Sweet & Sour Squash, page 144) seeming to urge you to sample their flavours and textures.

One thing I will say, is that I thank goodness I live close to an ethnic shop where I can seek out some of the less well-known herbs and spices. As I read through the book, I was muttering things like "well what the heck is Chaat Masala?" or "Panch Phoran? Whaaa?", however confidence was restored when I reached page 171 where Anjum has set out a "Spices 101", giving descriptions of the majority of spices and herbs mentioned in the book. *phew* That's a relief.

Another few pages of note begin at just page 8, where Anjum sets out some of the "secrets" to making a successful curry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the takeaway!! 17 Oct 2010
A fantastic recipe book, I've got all off Anjum's books but if you're just going to buy one I would recommend this one. Once you've got the basic spices and ingredients you can cook lots of different curries, and I've yet to try one that isn't delicious. The recipes are short and simple and I promise they are better than the takeaway equivalent and much healthier. Buy this for a curry fan for Christmas they'll be chuffed!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy Recipes, Beautiful Images 18 Oct 2010
By K. Gill
I've always been pretty scared away from curries because of all the different ingredients and steps. I felt like I was cheating if I just went out and got the powders already ground instead of using whole ingredients. When this book came, I was so mesmerized by the photography (Jonathan Gregson), I couldn't resist the urge to read through and tab a recipe to try out right away. I opted for the light-scented cumin chicken curry. I had all the ingredients on hand without having to buy anything special. It took very few steps to get everything into the pot and on its way, and was pretty hands off. My kind of recipe! People more familiar with Indian recipes may say that all curries are like this. I had read many recipes before but never tried them.

Anjum's writing is clear, steps are easy to follow, and nothing is too involved.

This was the perfect book to start out with, and I think others with my same level of curry skills would find this book very approachable. I really really like it a lot.

Will be using it again this coming weekend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, easy to follow, recipes 11 Oct 2010
I am certainly not an expert on Indian Food, but I love eating a good curry and I love to try out new recipes. Anjun's 'I Love Curry' is a very easy to follow, clearly written collection of her favourite dishes, and they are neatly laid out in sections by 'Vegetable' 'Meat' 'Poultry' etc. Her introduction is very personal and I like how she describes her cooking and her preferences, particularly how one should watch the flavour come together, the spices and the colours. Most of the ingredients listed are readily available in most supermarkets so one can really pick a different recipe each time and there are a lot of photographs to accompany each dish. My first dish, Punjabi Chicken, was very successful! For people like me who want to approach the world of curry, this is an ideal way to start.
