Format: Paperback
I used to live on Brick Lane, mecca of London Curry houses. When I ate in the restaurants I'd wonder 'How do they get that taste?' I tried a few books, but never came up with anything like a good Ruby.
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.

I love these types of recipe books Curry Club 250 Favourite Curries and Accompaniments
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.

This book is regarded as one of the best all round Indian curry books and for good reason, not over complicated and easy to follow. I lost my original so bought this one second hand, I was very pleased with the condition and the price was a fraction of a new copy.

This is my curry bible.
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....

This is worth having for his amazing tikka recipe alone. The best ever, although very complicated. The spice blend works superbly and I have delighted and surprised many a guest with this.
