Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Chicken chasni

      One of my family's favourites. I've made it many times.

  • Naans

    • angrygreycat on July 10, 2018

      Makes too much for a small family, so I cut the dough into individual size portions, wrap it in cling wrap and put it in the freezer. Anytime I want Naan, I take out 1 or 2 portions and defrost them on the counter for a little bit and they are good to go. Super easy recipe. Tastes great.

Publishers Text

Dan Toombs (aka The Curry Guy) has perfected the art of replicating Indian Restaurant cooking after traveling 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 takeout from your favorite restaurant but in less time and for less money. Dan has learned 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.

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, and 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.
