Product Description

In search of the perfect curry - the very best recipes that India has to offer.

Whenever I hear the word curry, I'm filled with a longing for spicy hot food with the fragrance of cumin, cloves and cinnamon. I see deep red colours from lots of Kashmiri chillis, tinged with a suggestion of yellow from turmeric. I think of the tandoor oven, and slightly scorched naan shining with ghee and garlic.When Indians talk of their food, they talk about their life. To understand this country, you need to understand curry.

What makes a good curry? Sensual spicy aromas or thick, creamy sauces? Rich, dark dals or crispy fried street snacks? Rick journeys through India to find the answer, searching this colourful, chaotic nation in search of the truths behind our love affair with its food.

Chefs, home cooks and street vendors hold the key to unlocking the secrets of these complex and diverse flavours – and Rick's travels take him to the heart of both their long-held traditions and most modern techniques. He uncovers recipes for fragrant kormas, delicate spiced fish and slow-cooked biryanis, all the while gathering ideas and inspiration for his own take on that elusive dish – the perfect curry.

          The vegetarian section is the best I have come across in any book. I keep wanting to buy another Indian book (I have an addiction) but always come back to this, not needing another! By far his best book.

                  The authenticity of these recipes, the easy way the recipes are written, the little stories about how Rick worked with the various cooks and chefs, and the background of the recipes makes this a delightful and well constructed cookbook. Besides all that every recipe I have made since purchasing has been a success.
