Most of us are introduced to Indian food at a restaurant and this wonderful book will teach you the simple, effective and time-saving techniques used by Indian chefs. At last, you too can bring the flavour of your local curry restaurant to your home and make it your own. Unlike many cookery books, in this book Pat Chapman's straightforward instructions focus on how to create food with an infinite variety of tastes, helping you to cook delicious, hassle-free meals. There is an excellent selection of well-tested dishes combining all your restaurant favourites with a liberal sprinkling of recipes you'll find in Indian homes. With a little practice you will be able to produce snacks, meals or even banquets that will delight your family and friends and leave most Indian restaurants at the starting gate.
