Recreate Over 100 of the Best British Indian Restaurant

Dan Toombs (aka The Curry Guy) has perfected the art of replicating British Indian Restaurant (BIR) cooking after travelling around the UK, sampling dishes, learning the curry house kitchen secrets and refining those recipes at home. In other words, Dan makes homemade curries that taste just like a takeaway from your favourite local but in less time and for less money. Dan has learnt through the comments left on his blog and social media feeds that people are terribly let down when they make a chicken korma or a prawn bhuna from other cookbooks and it taste nothing like the dish they experience when they visit a curry house…but they thank him for getting it right.

The Curry Guy shows all BIR food lovers around the world how to make their favourite dishes at home. Each of the classic curry sauces are given, including tikka masala, korma, dopiazza, pasanda, madras, dhansak, rogan josh, vindaloo, karai, jalfrezi, bhuna and keema. Popular vegetable and sides dishes are there as accompaniments, aloo gobi, saag aloo and tarka dhal, plus samosas, pakoras, bhaji, and pickles, chutneys and raitas. Of course, no curry is complete without rice or naan. Dan shows you how to cook perfect pilau rice or soft pillowy naan every time.

£6 for a paperback book with all recipes available online for free - seems steep!

It is a fantastic book. Just cooking up a large batch of precooked chicken.
If you have a Kashmiri Supermarket nearby, the spices and meats are really cheap and far better quality than regular supermarkets. Bought 5 massive chicken breasts (3.75kg) for around £7.50, Spices 60p-70p for 100g rather than £2.50+ for small jars from Supermarket.

Check out Julian Voight on youtube. When I bought a tandoor I used his recipes. Very restaurant like.

Ordered. Thanks OP

Ive got this book and for £6 its a steal.

Have some! Nice one, OP.

The Curry Secret by Kris Dhillon is a great book too, only short with no pictures but contains all the classics. You can pick it up really cheap secondhand. Checkout the tip of using mint sauce in onion salad/raita.

Ordered as an extra last minute Father's Day pressie - thanks OP

purchased thanks op

See you are spreading the word on here as well as slagging off the book on Amazon. Quite frankly, your review was not worth the time it took me to read it - utterly pointless.

Thanks OP - heat and ordered.
Perfect for those of us who don't own a tandoor ......

This book is brilliant, the initial cook seems daunting having to cook up a batch of base curry and boiled Chicken or lamb. But it isn't as bad as it reads and the results are brilliant. Consistently good curry and as OP said, Dan, is a great guy if you have questions about any of the recipes or ingredients. Cooked his Tandoori chicken on the BBQ last night for the second time and it was amazing!

Yes, you can get some of the recipes for free on his website, but he's worked hard so why not support him. Sometimes this site should be called wanteverythingforfree.com!
