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!!

4.0 out of 5 stars I love Curry 23 Jan 2011
By Steve
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love curry, and have been making it since I was about 11, so its fair to say that I am quite an experienced curry cook. I was bought the book for Christmas, and made a couple of recipes, and it inspired me to buy it for someone else. The recipes are modern, and tasty, and so far, I have really liked what I have made, and she does explain some tips very well, which has improved the way I make curry.

So why only four stars then?

My only major complaint would be that the quantities are sometimes a little small especially if you don't make more than one curry. Anjum's definition of a curry is a stand alone main course dish, yet, say, the Keralan pork curry, whilst delicious, only has 100g of meat per person. My family likes to eat more, especially when it tastes so good! Some of the chicken ones seem a little small too, so when it says serves 4-5, I would say if you have 5 people, you will certainly need another curry, and even 4 hungry people would need more, certainly in my house!

Overall its a great book with good recipes, and I am glad I have it. I have done most of the meat curries and accompaniements in the book now, and have no complaints about the food, they all taste great, and it is a lot more modern than many of the curry books I have bought.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love Curry! 14 Oct 2010
This is a must have book for lovers of Indian food who are eager to keep all the flavours but eat more healthily and lightly. The book, by Anjum Anand, who has had her own television shows and concentrates on demystifying Indian food, presents the premise of a stand-alone main course eaten with rice or naan, in the style of many of our Indian restaurants. There is an excellent introductory section on the basics of making a good curry, a good spice list and a clear index that reads like the menu of an Indian take-away! There are good photographs of all the dishes.

The main section contains recipes for vegetable curries, fish and seafood, poultry and meat, plus starters and side dishes. Ones that caught my eye, with photographs making you hungry, were karahi mushrooms with pepper and peas, karari prawns, chilli chicken balti, parsi style duck with apricots, pork vindaloo and beef madras. There are some lovely light vegetable side dishes, which would also go well with non-Indian meals and a short but comprehensive guide to Indian breads.

Once you have bought your basic spices, which will serve you in good stead, you will be able to have your own Indian menu any night you choose, with much less fat or oil than found in restaurant curries and flavours that can be tweaked to exactly as you want them. A lovely book, both for beginners and experienced cooks and will save you a lot of money!
