Reduced from £25 to £10 instore, and with the attached voucher a further £5 OFF to make it a casual fiver.

The definitive curry guide.

Queen of Curry Madhur Jaffrey offers the definitive guide to this diverse cookery form. Not just Indian curries but South East Asian, African, West Indian and anglicised versions from the UK and USA. Curry's popularity is so great that it has crossed the globe, manifesting itself in every culture imaginable. Meat-based or vegetarian its range covers every taste and appetite from mild kormas, spicy madras' and the notoriously hot vindaloos. Demonstrating its centuries old origins, Madhur leads the reader through the culinary history of Britain's number one favourite meal. Developing from when the colonials returned home and Indians themselves started to migrate around the world, so their national food followed, served up in homes, restaurants and hotels across the globe. Its appeal today is as strong as ever and its influence on other forms of cooking immense. From the Moguls to the British colonials with recipes such as the Nawab of Dhaka's family korma and even that Victorian doyenne of the kitchen, Mrs Beeton's curry sauce with tomato, Madhur offers a comprehensive range of delicious curries to cook in your own home. This is a culinary celebration of curry from one of the top Indian chefs today, lavishly illustrated, clearly explained and entertainingly written for a fascinating read. - Lucy Watson

Why would you type a question and then answer it yourself whilst you actually seem to be browsing for the voucher and typing on this website at the same time???
:w00t:

Hmmm this brings up a dilemma now. Do I go for this book, or do I get "Anjum's New Indian" Book which is also available for the same price of £5 using the voucher??

Any recommendations guys? :?

Great find to the OP. Streatham branch has no copies but nearby Balham has 17 left - hurry up quick! Heat added.

This is curry book of the year :thumbsup:

I would dispute the lavishly illustrated comment though. Many of the recipes do not have pictures.

I have both and can recommend either but this one in particular has much more content and is aimed at perhaps more advanced skills (but is not over difficult and I prefer it).Anjums is easier and has nice recipe's.

The Curry Secret (about £3 online), Rice Spice and all things nice and 50 great curries of india are also fab :)

Hope this helps :thumbsup:

didn't have it in my 'smaller' smiths. Is it a chart book?
#21
WOW - Just getting into cooking my own curries at home and this looks just the thing - What a spectacular saving for what looks like a great book. I am also interested in the Anjums New Indian one mentioned elsewhere. No dillema for me either about which one to buy - at a fiver a piece I will take both!!

Thanks so much for posting this! You are welcome to pop over and enjoy the fruits of my labours as a thank you too! :thumbsup:
#22
Anyone used the last voucher more than once? Just confused about voucher not being transferable in the T&C's. Thanks.
#23
Just been and used two vouchers - One to get this book, the other for Anjums New Indian - £45 worth of curry books for only £10, so I am well pleased.

Thanks so much for posting this. Rep added! :thumbsup:
#24
this is a cracking deal, picked my copy up today, really lovely book which was cookery book of the year when it was published,
#25
Ok. Will try to put my rupees' on Madhu Jaffrey....Dont really like Anjum! (a personal thing) Find her dishes far too easy! ;-)
Infact she is on Beeb now! cooking goan food, and talking too much as she mostly does.....Perhaps her book has far too much detail for my liking...

This is absolutely fantastic, I bought two of these recipe books, one for my partner and other for my sister. But the great thing is this £5 voucher is for any book, and there are so many on offer at the moment in WH Smith. I went in today and printed off 5 of these vouchers and ended up buying 5 books which were already discounted down to £10 each so they cost me only £5 each, absolute bargain. Even got the mother in law a encyclopedia of gardening which was £35 reduced to £10, however when I took it to the til it had been reduced further to £8.75, however this voucher is only valid for books £10 or over, but the nice man behind the counter put the price back up to £10 and then I could use the voucher, brilliant. I would recommend printing off a few of the vouchers as once you get into store you will end up buying more than you expected.

Took two visits, but finally landed my copy today! Thanks, it really is a treat at the price!
#28
I got Madur Jaffrey's, Anjum's and Ramsey's Healthy Food. Not bad for £15!

It's a really great voucher to use with all the special offers in store. Print off a few vouchers and then go and have a browse!

Curry Bible... Hmmm...

Then Jesus took the Naan bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them saying "This is my body given for you; do this is remembrance of me."

I know this is an old(er) post but as those who have posted on it are obviously into their curries, have a look at [url]www.cr0.co.uk[/url]

Yes you need to sign up but its free. I've used it for a while now and personally use the Darth Phall base sauce for all of my curries. Some of the best curries I've made so far have been off this site.

Oh and I got a copy of this book for my Christmas Present as well :)
