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
