Product Description

From the Back Cover

Curry is the gateway to Indian cooking. It is the backbone of Indian cooking, it's the glory of Indian cooking. Curry has nothing to do with powder in a can and everything to do with amazing flavors. Curry is the dazzling layering of spices and ingredients, the familiar made new and the exotic made accessible. Not to mention all that tasty sauce to mop up with rice or bread.
"660 Curries" is Salmon with Garlic and Turmeric, Grilled Chicken with Cashew-Tomato Sauce, Lamb Shanks Braised in a Fennel and Cumin-Kissed Broth, Toasted Tamarind-Rubbed Shrimp, Pork Ribs with a Sweet-Sour Glaze. "660 Curries" is traditional, contemporary, extraordinary, and it's jam-packed with easy one-dish dinners that dance on the palate, in recipes created for the home kitchen.

Format: Paperback
I am not prone to writing reviews unless the book in question is either remarkably poor or spectacularly good, this book is the latter.

A superb collection of curries (and by curry I mean anything with some combination of Indian spices) from across the width and breadth of India. If this is the one book on Indian cuisine that you buy you will not be disappointed.

Pros:
Excellent vegetarian options
Excellent instructions: I have cooked 30+ recipes without fail
Something for everyone.
Good portion estimates.
Good education in strategy and description of each stage within a recipe.
Excellent individual recipes and combination recommendations.
Excellent collection of home recipes and associated anecdotes.

Cons:
No estimated cooking time.

Buy it.

I purchased this book after reading a review from a cookery website. I bought this particular book because I had been looking for some good vegetarian recipes, while I am not a vegetarian I was looking to make some new healthier curries. I wasn't disappointed with the results. If like me, you have a passion for curries and love to read about anything curry I'm sure you will enjoy this book. If you are expecting to re-create a curry similar to a takeaway/restaurant curry then I think you will be disappointed.
I have owned this book for just over a month now and have made quite a few curries from it and they have all turned out nice. Raghavan Iyer is an American Indian and as such the recipes in the book are americanised, so you may have to translate some of the ingredients. My wife doesn't enjoy the book as much as I do because there are no illustrations other than the first few pages. If you are expecting to see pictures of the curries that you will be making there aren't any, although that isn't such a bad thing, as I have found most of the glossy curry books show lovely pictures of the finished product, but when you try to re-create the same curry they never look the same.
Overall, its a great purchase, which I'm sure I will keep referring to again and again.

Wow! AWESOME curry recipes that really help one to understand how to use an enormous array of spices in different combinations. However the simplest of dishes can often be made with just two or three - genius!

Delicious.

You may question the author's definition of a curry but you cannot criticise the range of the dishes on offer in this book and the research that has gone into it. This is a superb book for people interested in Indian Cuisine and all the recipes I have cooked from it have turned out brilliantly. Prepare to enjoy your food more as you cook from this book!

The preparations are simple. The ingredients are easy to get. Easy to follow even for a dummy. The curries are fantastically delicious. Besides the recipies and tips on cooking, the information on health benefits etc are very helpful and enlightening. A worthwhile investment that brings benefit for a lifetime.
