If you love Indian Takeaway food, you'll love this!
on 17 March 2014
I have a few Madhur Jaffrey books and really enjoy cooking Indian food (her Keema recipe is amazing and VERY easy).
However I decided to try this book because I could buy it for reading on my tablet and it got such good reviews. Which are well deserved!
I made the Chicken Tikka Masala and it was properly good, would pay good money for it from a restaurant level of good. I wasn't convinced after I made the initial batch of 'base' curry sauce but by the time I had finished it off, it was gorgeous. I also made the onion bhajis (which were so much more successful that another recipe I had found online) and also the naan bread. Again, I wasn't convinced when making the naan bread as it doesn't use yeast (as Madhur Jaffrey does) but I have to say that it was lighter and less doughy for that reason.
I like the fact that once you've made your base sauce (which makes enough for about 6 meals each for 4 people), it's just a matter of adding a few more ingredients to create whichever Indian delight takes your fancy.
Almost quicker than getting in the car and driving to collect a takeaway, cheaper and tastier!
