Quick Meals from The Curry House is the latest book from David Smith, author of The Curry House Cookery Book and The Curry House website. The book contains over 50 recipes for making Indian restaurant-style meals at home. Most of the recipes can be made from scratch in under an hour.
Thanks to everyone who has bought my book this year. I really hope you enjoyed making the recipes and eating the curries.
I am pleased to announce that I am in the process of wrtitng a new book which should be published in the middle of 2017. Keep an eye out here for more announcements.
Wishing you all a Happy New Year
one hour recipes
Nearly all the recipes can be made from scratch in under an hour. The exceptions are the tandoori-style dishes and the breads but even they don't take up anywhere near an hour of your time. The tandoori-style dishes need a few hours for the meat to marinate and the breads need time for the dough to rise.
The book is written for people who want to make a restaurant-style meal in a reasonable amount of time and you'll be able to make a main dish with rice in under an hour.
what's in the book
The book has six chapters of recipes - House Specials, Curry House Favourites, Tandoori-style Dishes, Vegetable Bhajis, Rice & Breads and Dips & Relishes - containing over 50 recipes.
The recipes make dishes that bridge the gap between restaurant meals and supermarket ready-meals.
The book has other useful chapters with extensive cooking notes, advice on ingredients and what kitchen equipment you'll need (answer - nothing special).
Many of the House Specials and Curry House Favourites are made with chicken but there is a chapter with easy instructions on how to make the recipes with lamb, prawns or a vegetarian alternative.
choose your edition
If you like the sound of the book, which version should you choose?
The paperback edition is a traditional cookbook which you can read at your leisure or keep next to you as you cook. Although the paperback book does not contain pictures of the dishes, other than the cover photos, it does include a link to an exclusive area of The Curry House where you can view online pictures of every single recipe and get help if you need it.
The Digital Edition is downloadable as 10 handy digests in PDF format. Download all the digests or just the one you need at the time - you can always go back later and download the rest. You can print each recipe as you want to cook it (and re-print it when the first copy has cooking stains all over it!). Every recipe includes a picture of the finished dish showing exactly how it turned out for me.
