This is the curry book with a difference!
It gives the secret of Indian Restaurant Cooking - not the traditional cuisine practised by Indians at home - but the particularly interesting and distinctive variety that is served in Indian restaurants all over the world.
Kris Dhillon writes with the authority of an accomplished Indian restaurateur, with many years experience and thousands of satisfied customers. Most chefs guard closely the secret of their basic curry sauce, but in this book Kris Dhillon reveals all, and offers you the opportunity to reproduce that elusive taste, in your own kitchen.
Learn how to create chicken, lamb, fish and vegetable curries of mouth-watering quality as well as a wide variety of other Indian dishes.

This is the best curry book ever. I have bought so many curry cookery books and I consider myself a curry connoisseur and this book is by far the best.

 What a disappointment

I bought this after reading tons of extremely positive and exciting reviews by other readers somewhere else. I spent 3-4 hours yesterday preparing the basic sauce (the "secret"), and tonight I first cooked the chicken and then the actual curry (a Tikka Masala), always following the instructions to the letter. At first, it tasted a bit bland and quite disappointing. After a while, it tasted terribly greasy and we could not even finish it. What a disappointment!

I am not giving it less than three stars because I think it is fair give it the benefit of the doubt: a majority of readers are really happy with it and I have only cooked one of the curries. However, taking into account most of them are based on the same "secret" sauce, I would not expect much from any of the recipes. So three stars for the book, but none for the terrible Tikka Masala I spent so much time on. Definitely not worth the effort in my experience.

I had this book recommended to me over 10 years ago. Its great - particularly good if cooking for many - I cooked curry for 40 people using this - it made it all so much easier. It will impress your dinner guests. I make the sauce in big batches and freeze it in portions which makes it even easier/better.

What a revelation!!!!!!! Follow the recipes to the letter and you make authentic curries! None of this buying of expensive spices for something that tastes curry-ish.
What a find!!
