Format: Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
Had a few of these little Hamlyn books and not been terribly impressed up until now, with uninspiring recipes and brown-hued photography. This curry volume is a fab addition to the range though and has raised the bar considerably. Full of gorgeous-looking pictures - a whole crab swimming in a coconutty sea, huge beef meatballs nestling on a mound of ribbon-like noodles garnished with ruby red chilli rings, and hearty curried oxtail next to a creamy pile of mash. I'd probably start with something fairly easy, like the simple fish and potato curry with it's sweet hit of palm sugar and cinnamon, or maybe the spicy courgette fritters with mango salsa. Or even the elegant Singaporean scallops, cooked in rice wine and garnished with ginger and spring onion matchsticks. In fact, I'd spend so long drooling I'd probably never get round to cooking at all. Which is a shame because I'd happily devour about 90% of the dishes in this book - and it's rare to find a cookbook were so many of the recipes appeal. One last thing - these are (relatively) healthy curries, making use of reduced fat yoghurt and coconut milk, and dry rubs for some of the meat and fish, as well as suggesting virtuous sides of shredded veg, tamarind rice and red lentils. You'd never know it though, so mouthwatering are all the pics. 240 pages of guilt free troughing. What are you waiting for?
