Curry enthusiasts will be delighted by TV Chef Anjum Anand’s latest book treat, I Love Curry. Amongst the 50 easy to follow curry recipes are mouth watering images – enough to tempt anyone to have a go!
If you’re a fan of Madhu Jaffrey’s fine cookery books you will find this a joy! It has an equal blend of traditional homely dishes for you to try and perfect and some new innovations – to please the experimental chef in you. True to her anyone-can-cook-a-curry style Anand makes it all, oh so simple – perfect for novices.
The cury recipes show a healthier way of eatingIndian food without compromising on taste – in all there are 25 accompanying dishes to try, some could even be served as a light lunch. I was most tempted to try the King Prawn Curry and Chilli Paneer – with satisfying results. I’ve also had a go at the Punjabi Dumpling Kadhi which is a pleasant twist on a great gujarati classic. Call me a traditionalist but I like the additions of proper home cook meals in this book, which steers away from the sort of fancy stuff you’d only order in a restaurant. Great for anyone who loves Indian food but doesn’t want to spend hours in the kitchen!
Anjum Anand is well known as the presenter of the BBC 2 series of Indian Food Made Easy. Her books accompanying the series were bestsellers. Anjum appears in newspapers and magazines promoting her light, healthy and modern take on Indian food.
