Review

This is an absolute boon for thrifty cooks. Covering curries from near and far, it brings the Bikers' love of good food to one of Britain's favourite cuisines. Whether you favour a delicately spiced korma or crave the chilli hit of a vindaloo, this is a curry-eaters delight (BBC GOOD FOOD)

Si and Dave have thought of everything, with recipes for obscure Afghan aubergines alongside crowd-pleasers like lamb pasanda and Thai green curry, as well as simple side dishes and accompaniments, such as mango chutney, lime pickle and chapatis (GREAT BRITISH FOOD MAGAZINE)

If you love tucking into a good curry this book is for you. The Hairy Bikers show us that a curry should be an exquisitely fragrant dish, with delicate flavours that surprise and titillate your taste buds (FOOD & WINE MAGAZINE)

The Hairy Bikers have added their magic to curries in their latest book, The Hairy Bikers' Great Curries. The book is overflowing with enticing recipes for all sorts of curries - some familiar, some not. There are recipes for a vast array of accompaniments as well in this really enjoyable book (CHOICE)

Ranging from simple midweek meals to fantastic weekend treats, all of these curries are fragrant, delicious and made from easy-to-find ingredients (EASY FOOD)

a selection of mouthwatering curries - from India, Thailand and Vietnam to Jamaica and Japan - cover everything from simple midweek family meals to fantastic weekend celebrations. This one-stop cookbook demystifies curry for the home cook (WOMAN & HOME FEEL GOOD FOOD)

the real deal... you'll find all the recipes and tips you need to make some mouthwatering meals, with everything from starters to pickles and chutneys (TASTY)

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.

Now don't get me wrong, I only paid £5 for this book, but although it is beautifully produced, I still feel disappointed in this book. It doesn't, for me, have the appeal of their Asian book.
Several things contribute to this. Their inclusion of ready made pastes. Of course if you get home from work tired you won't be up for making your own paste, but it is easy enough to do abit of chopping/ mixing/toasting for a couple of hours a month and freeze your results.(This is where Rick Stein's excellent books score points) And once you've made your own pastes and curry powder, you won't go back to the ready made stuff.
Yes they give a recipe for garam masala, but their over reliance on it in recipes as one of the main ingredients, instead of a condiment is just lazy.
There is no mention either of cooking out the masala until the oil separates, which is essential to the taste of the spices.
If you are looking for authentic Indian/Asian fare, then I would stick to Rick Stein, Madhur Jaffrey, both of who write for enthusiasts, this book I would say is more suited to those who are just begining to tip their toes into Far Eastern cuisine.

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

I love this book. It has many, easy to follow, recipes.
The photos are lovely and the Bikers give some very good tips.

I have made a few of the recipes now, and they were delicious.

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.

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.
