Then one day I found this book. I realised in the first few pages this was what I needed. A book that would turn my kitchen into the Moghul Tandoori Palace.
And it did. the book doesn't tell you to make what someone's Grandma cooked in Delhi. The book doesn't have 'dream' recipes banged out without testing by a TV-personality to fulfil a contract. The book does tell you exactly how to cook the things you love on your local curryhouse menu.
The detail is excellent, Pat Chapman writes concisely, he explains everything in ways the beginner will understand. No real technical cookery jargon, when Pat says 'cook until it goes chup-chup' you know exactly what he means. The book makes you think like a restaurant cook. The recipes in the book are so good you end up liking the things you cook better than you get in your local tandoori.
There's all the usual curries you'd expect, and a lot of 'specialities'. A lot of the recipes are taken directly from named restaurants, although the more common ones are a blend of the recipes he's encountered.
The best recommendation for the book is the food itself. I emailed a chap I know in the US a recipe for Chicken Madras. His comment this morning was
"Best dang curry I've ever tasted, anywhere, any time!!! ... If I wasn't dieting, I'd still be eating"
And that says it all. I agree with him 100%. If you are just going to have one curry recipe book, this should be it.
Well written by Pat Chapman and the recipes are easy to follow and taste wonderful.
It's just one of those traditional curry books that is a must have.
I haven't tried all the recipes yet, but the ones I have are a hit with friends and family.
It includes how to make all the pastes and powders from scratch with whole spices, and once made can be kept to use over and over again to make endless different curries. It is a must for curry cooking lovers....

I have been searching for this book for months. It arrived quickly and was still in a good condition considering it was a second hand book.Published on 20 Jun. 2014 by Twixmars
Book was water damaged with ripped pages & pages stuck together causing more damage to unstick them. In my opinion was not of saleable quality.Published on 29 April 2013 by David Flewitt
