I never thought I could make curries that tasted and had the appearance of restaurant dishes until I bought this book. There are curries from different lands and the variety is stupendous. Well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tasty, delicious and simple to make curries 7 Mar 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Having produced a mammoth book on pies it was only a matter of time before the Hairy Bikers produced a similar book on curries, and here it is. Coming in at nigh on 400 pages this is a great book for anyone who has even the slightest interest in making delicious curries for their family and friends.

The great thing about the recipes in this book is that on the whole they stick to ingredients that you can find in your local supermarket. Some recipes do require ingredients that you may not be able to find without using an online specialist store. However, these are few and far between. I have a number of curry books and some of them call for obscure ingredients that would spend the next few years sat at the back of the cupboard gathering dust.

Each recipe comes with an accompanying photograph which means you will have some idea what the finished meal should look like. As this is a Hairy Bikers' cookbook the recipe instructions and straightforward and easy to follow and I believe that even the most amateur of cooks would have success with the recipes in this book.

The book is divided into the following chapters:

Starters & snacks
Light curries
Chicken curries
Fish & shellfish curries
Lamb, beef and pork curries
Vegetable curries
Curry for a crowd
Side dishes
Breads & rice
Pickles & chutneys
Sweet dishes
The basics
A curry and a berr
Great curry meals

Please find below a list of all of the recipes in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful curry resource for spice lovers! 1 Mar 2013
By Carole
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was very excited to receive my delivery today of The Hairy Bikers' Great Curries. I don't often pre-order books but this one has been eagerly awaited so it is great to be one of the first to get my hands on this book on publication day. It is quite a substantial book at 384 pages but is a great new resource for curry addicts.

There are two particularly good things about this new book:

It draws on curry recipes from around the world so it is a little different from the normal curry book which often only has Indian recipes. The variety is amazing, drawn from the Bikers' many travels around the world. So whether you fancy Indian, Malaysian, Thai or perhaps Vietnamese recipes they are all here.

As well as curry recipes it also includes sections on starters, breads, rice dishes and even desserts so you really can cook a complete dinner party with accompaniments from this book.

It caters for all tastes. Whether you are a die hard meat curry eater or your preference is for vegetable curries, everyone will find a recipe to suit them. I am not a vegetarian but I must admit many of the vegetable curry recipes look so delicious that I feel inspired to cook some of them. They would be a great complement to meat curries if you are cooking for a group of people anyway. The Channa Masala recipe looked fantastic it combines chick peas and tomatoes with a delicious selection of spices including ginger, cumin, paprika, garam masala and lemon juice.

There is an All-in-one Lamb Dhansak recipe. It sounds like a quite delectable combination of lamb, lentils, spices and lime juice to combine heat with an edge of sourness.

4.0 out of 5 stars Converted to Curries 18 Sep 2013
By Theo
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Usually when I get a cook book from some bloke on the TV, I'll try one recipe before letting the tome become a dustcatcher.

This one isn't. There are a wide variety of recipes, from very simple to very complicated, but all the ones I've tried have been sound. Most I tend to tweak in the making, and again on the second making, but that's to do with my personal tastes.

The thing I particularly like about this book is how accessible it is. I live in a field and have a very small local Tesco to shop in, but Curry Leaves are the only thing I haven't been able to get hold of (so far). I also like that I haven't ended up with a cupboard full of spices which aren't going to get used. So far, it's all been about the same main spices.

For somebody who wants to cook something tasty which can become part of their regular repertoire, it's perfect. It's full of food I want to cook; you can't say fairer than that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic 28 Feb 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Just taken delivery of this eagerly anticipated book and I'm in no way disappointed. It's a big, colorful book crammed with delightful sounding recipes. Starters including pakoras, samosas and (my fav) chicken tikka. Low fat section, veggie section, sweet treats etc etc Si and Dave have it all covered. Cooking for a crowd? No problem - some of these curries can feed 18 people.
Classics like chicken tikka masala, lamb rogan josh and chicken korma are in here along with a few others like Japanese Chicken Katsu curry (a la Wagamama), Lamb Vindaloo, Goan Fish curry and Chicken Jalfrezi. You've got your naans, pickles and rices too. What more do you need?
I am very excited about this book as I already have The Hairy Dieters book and the curries in there ( of which a few are also in this book) are amazing and go down a storm with my family. I can't wait to get stuck into this slice of curry heaven.
