This book has a list of almost everything I can think of that is made in India. Right from making different varieties of spices to all the preparations from north to south of India.
The book is divided into various sections for vegetarian, meat, fish, sweet dishes, etc.
I use this book a lot for making curries new to me and they turn out to be absolute yummy !
Even my mate - who is British makes great food with that book !
In short this book is highly recommended and should be a part of every food lover's kitchen...
I actually made two yesterday (pea dopazia) and (sweet and sour keema) there was no where NEAR enough spices in them to even create a gentle flavour. The dopazia one just smelled like yoghurt and onions. I followed the recipe exactly and had to add tons more spices and curry paste to make them remotely flavourful.
It just puts me off the recipes now...hmm.
The only reason I haven't given it 5 stars is because the book (or at least my copy) isn't particularly well bound. Mine's falling apart after less than a year. I guess at £6.29 something's got to give, but buy it anyway and look after it.
My only issue with this book is that there are no photos and a lot of the recipes are actually repeated or indeed very, very similar.
When learning to cook "curry", it is important to learn from many different sources, as there are so many variations of each dish and cooking techniques can vary greatly.
The curry we usually make here generally doesn't even exist in India, but it is possible to make dishes that will blow you away using a mixture of traditionally Indian and non-traditionally Indian techniques.
Also check out the kindle book "Chilli Man's Spicy Cookbook - Indian" if you are interested in cooking good curries.
great service - good price
