At last, I can cook a curry!,
This review is from: The New Curry Bible: The Ultimate Modern Curry House Recipe Book (Curry Club) (Paperback)
In the past I'd tried curry recipes from a handful of other books but never managed to get a result I was happy with. So far, I haven't had a dud using Pat Chapman's recipes (even though I have sometimes cheated and used commercial Masala mixes instead of making the Masala as he recommends). The only downsides are that you need an extensive collection of spices and a fair amount of time.
I have also really appreciated the different variations he gives for each type of curry, and his explanations of how curry is made in restaurants. This has given me a better understanding of the techniques and given me the confidence to start experimenting a little.
