The books covers everything you need to know, and more, including equipment, ingredients, techniques, and the recipes - as well as some excellent background information such as the history of particular dishes, regional variations and lavish photographs. If someone like me can make a tasty Lamb Keema just by following this book, so can you! :-)
No budding Curry chef should be without it!!!
The Curry Bible has pretty much every recipe you'd want - even if there is something missing, you can use this book to learn basic curry sauces and then play about with them to create whatever you want. For some dishes, like korma and pakora, it gives a more authentic version as well as a restaurant re-working. It also includes information about Indian regional cooking, spices and curries across the world.
Basically, it's really good and if you're at all interested in curries, buy it!
Great pictures, background history, spice explanations, great masalas and even shows restaurant vs authentic versions of dishes.
There are many 5/5 scores for this book for a reason - it will teach you how to make all the best curries you've ever eaten.
Once you've got your head round this and managed to work out some of the ommissions in relation to what goes in the oven and when, the actual results are very good. I've always found recipe books to be merely a guide anyway so this book is ideal for those that like to refer to cookbooks for guidance rather than stick rigidly to the recipe.
Overall, very happy with the book.
