Just got my hands on this book & can't wait to make my 1st curry from it, all the reviews look good just hope the curries are good too, good to see the resturaunt style curries we are used too in it, at least it explains how to make the basic curry sauce then add to it the different ingredients you need for different curries, unlike other curry books that don't explain thing properly!… Read Full Review

Cannot recommend The Curry Secret by Kris Dhillon highly enough and have done so to family and friends - all of whom share my very high opinion. If you follow the recipes you WILL create the perfect restaurant syle curry. My book has fallen apart through overuse… Read Full Review

I would really recommend this book. Once you have made the curry sauce it is so easy to do all the recipes. One tip: when making the curry sauce try and do it in the garden on a burner because the smell lingers… Read Full Review

The basic sauce takes time but stick with it. The recipe in the book makes enough sauce for about 6 portions, depending on your appetite or how you skim it. Every curry has the same basic sauce, so don't think that when you make this sauce you have to stick to the same curry. Once you have made the sauce, if you freeze it, it then only takes about 30 mins to create a mouth-watering dish. Each time you make a curry, whether it is a balti or a dupiaza it gets better and better.
Take note of the… Read Full Review

I would like to see more recipes in the book, and the base sauce takes a while, but it is worth taking the time and effort, as this is the foundation for great curries.
I have produced curries better then you would ever get in an Indian restaurant, and all my friends have bought this book after tasting my curries. It is simple to follow, and you get some fantastic spicy flavours… Read Full Review

I think Kris Dhillon's The Curry Secret : Indian Restaurant Cookery at Home is the very best, while visiting the U.K. about 2 years ago I came across this book and never have I looked back since, and none of my friends have either, I have used this book endless times. I can not put in to words how much this book has meant to me, I have endless compliments on my cooking, and have used it for about 10 gifts to the people that like me can not get enought of the curry secret. Thanks so much for… Read Full Review
