Synopsis

Curry Easy by Madhur Jaffrey

In this delicious collection of new recipes, Madhur Jaffrey shows us that Indian food need not be complicated or involve hours in the kitchen. Take a few well chosen spices and readily available ingredients, and in a few easy steps you can make a delicious prawn curry from Goa; succulent chicken baked in an almond and onion sauce; hearty Sri Lankan beef with coconut milk; a creamy potato and pea curry; tasty swiss chard stir fried with ginger and garlic; and, a spicy dip with beans (canned of course), cumin, chillies and lime. With over 175 clear, simple and accessible recipes, this mouthwatering cookbook is as beautifully written as her bestselling Ultimate Curry Bible, and is fully illustrated throughout with gorgeous colour photography. Whether you are cooking curry for the first time or have plenty of culinary experience and are looking for quick and easy ideas, Madhur brings you all the tastes of India with the minimum of work.

Reviews

A handsome book, clearly laid out and easy to follow. Classic Jaffrey, and a steal at the price -- Guy Dimond * Time Out * A true classic - fresh, intelligent and simply scrumptious. Even in an unusually strong year for cookbooks, Jaffrey's quality shines through. -- Bee Wilson * Sunday Times * Transforms Indian food into something relatively speedy to prepare at home. This would be a good one for the culinary aware student. -- Carolyn Hart * Telegraph Magazine * If you have the local curry house menu by your phone, consider replacing it with a copy of this book. Madhur is totally trustworthy and these recipes use readily available ingredients to whip up delicious curries in less time than it takes to deliver. -- Sally Hughes * BBC Good Food * As readable and useable as it is beautiful. * Delicious Magazine *
