My Kitchen Table, Madhur Jaffrey 100 Essential Curries
Madhur Jaffrey is the world's best-selling author of Indian cookery books. Here, she has collected 100 curry recipes from dals to biryanis, vegetarian to meat, simple and elaborate. Everybody loves a curry - and this book has a recipe to suit every taste.
Another book from the My Kitchen Table series (see previous post). This one is written by Madhur Jaffrey and is 100 essential curries. The book is split into eight sections: starters, soups and snacks; fish and seafood; eggs and poultry; lamb, pork and beef; vegetables and vegetarian dishes; Dal; Rice, breads and other grains; and, Relishes, chutneys and accompaniments.
Each section contains a number of recipes, all accompanied by superb, colour photographs. Each recipe has a brief introduction, which includes a brief history or serving instructions. The recipes includes the servings per recipe, a comprehensive and complete ingredient list. The recipe is split into up to five easy steps.
There are a wide range of recipes included in the book, many of which I hope to try - fritters, rice dishes and relishes and many curries which I am sure my husband will be trying.
This book is great for curry lovers everywhere, a quick dip recipe book to make a true Indian meal complete.
Thank you to Ebury Publishing for sending me this book to review.
