OMG lovely curry!
on 16 September 2011
I bought this on a whim because it was cheap. I have been very impressed and have not regretted my purchase. The author explains all the basic techniques and includes information about basic equipment and all the spices needed.
I like this book mostly because it uses (almost exclusively) supermarket bought ready ground dry spices. So you don't have to spend hours and a small fortune preparing spice mixes and pastes.
So far, I have only made one curry, the chicken pasanda. It was fantastic. I love medium spiced curries and usually never bother with mild curries, but I loved this and will certainly make it again soon. Both my partner and fussy toddler loved it too. It was almost exactly like a restaurant/ takeaway version, the only difference is that I used sunflower oil ( recommended by the author for health reasons) instead of the traditional ghee. If I had used ghee, it would have been an exact replica. I will be sticking to sunflower oil as I don't want myself or my family eating ghee.
Anyway, I will update my review when we try more recipes. Buy this whilst it's cheap. I hope the author brings out a paper format that I can give to friends and family who do not use kindle.
