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.

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.
No estimated cooking time.
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.
