2.0 out of 5 stars Not as expected, 6 Jan. 2011
By 
This review is from: Easy Indian Cookbook (Easy Cookbooks) (Paperback)
Although i find this book very good for its variety and it includes your traditional dishes such as korma and tikka masala i was still disapointed.
I decided try the tikka masala for my boyfriend and sister. It was an easy to follow recipe with many herbs and spices included. It looked the part and smelt just how it should do but upon taste it was rather hot and bland which i didnt expect after using 11 differnt spices for the curry and rice. After looking how to make it again in my good housekeeping book which i can highly recommend, they used a tikka masala paste, which next time i think i will try.
Overall nice book, easy to follow but recipes didnt really work.

Two things you can try - cook your spices in some oil - but be careful not to burn them - this will give them a 'smoother' taste rather than that raw flavour if you get just adding eveything to the pot at the start. Secondly, most indian shops chilli powder is way more powerful than the supermarket stuff. So try reducing the chilli by 50%. Since Chilli was introduced to India by the Portugese arriving in Goa, you can authentically make a curry without chilli and have a ready made story to explain why you did it. Personally I hate over-hot curry and routinely reduce the chilli recipe measure by 50%.
