One of the best aspects of the book is that it always seems to have a recipe that deals imaginatively with whatever it is you have too much of in the fridge - just look it up in the (excellent) index - there's usually a recipe you can adapt for it.
I am particularly enjoying working my way through the many recipes that have simple main ingredients that are then transformed into original and exciting dishes. It is often said that superb food doesn't need to be complicated, and there are numerous dishes in this book that bear this out. Two of my favourites are "Mushroom and Coriander Curry", and a simple sweetcorn with fresh herbs and lemon juice dish.
If you're seeking to impress with a real extravaganza, there are plenty of sophisticated recipes to meet any need. But my strong advice is to try the many more straightforward recipes and re-connect with quick, delicious meals from simple ingredients. If anything, they deliver more 'wow' factor by appearing to be simple, and so are great for when you are trying to impress or simply looking for delicious, everyday soul food. This is certainly far more than a book for special occasions - I cook from it at least twice a week and have never yet been disappointed by it.Read more ›
It's all in this book. From what the spices are to how to handle them. The origins and history of the recipes is an absolute bonus. Everything I've tried has worked really well. Curries, sauces, pastes and powders. I've learned and enjoyed so much. Delicious......
Simply can't praise this book high enough.
If you enjoy using and eating spices this is THE one to get.
My household is frequently visited by gests from West , and for them Indian/Pakistani food are amazing, shocking, pleasing and a discovery. With this book one can really make the meal times and guest times a great cutltural experience. I am glad that it is not one of those dumb cook books which dumps the recepie and never gives any history or cultural insignts whereas food is a significant part of any cutlture and traditon.
Many thanks Madhur for this book.
This is where I first went wrong, English curries are NOT authentic Indian curries, if you are looking for all of your local favs this book is certainly not for you. However if you are looking for a book of authentic family recipes from around the world, there is nothing better.
Of the many recipes in this book, I have cooked around 10, all of which have been stunningly good. The selection of Kenyan recipes have been enlightening to my pallet and the Vietnamese cuisine has also been a revelation. This truly is my most used and adored cookery book.
A brief history of the curry story has been included at the beginning of this book (brief compared to the whole story!) and can really increase your eating pleasure by making you aware of the similarities between the different styles and how they came to be.
As a quick footnote, I first used The Curry Secret as my go to for curries, I as many others are, was not impressed and making big batches of the curry base was inconvenient. This book knocks the socks off it and most of the recipes are a lot less effort and a lot more flavoursome!
