Great looking recipes, but I cant
on 15 September 2013
I love Anjum's tv show and the recipes in this book look very nice too. Unfortunately everything I tried to cook so far was a failure. The fish curry turned out brown grey colour and quite unpleasant taste. Since I have little experience in curries, I measured all the spices precisely and followed the recipes to the letter. Comparing recipes with the TV recordings, I have some doubts about the measurements provided. She's using a special Indian spice-spoon that appears to be quite smaller than a tsp measure. I will definitely try cooking again, perhaps using the Indian spices-spoon measure and comparing each stage of cooking to the TV recording. Her dishes do look very nice, so I hope eventually to be able to cook some of them at least.
