The unsurpassed Queen of the Curries, Madhur Jaffrey, presents over 175 new quick and easy curry recipes

In this delicious collection of new recipes, Madhur Jaffrey shows us that Indian food need not be complicated or involve hours in the kitchen. Take a few well chosen spices and readily available ingredients, and in a few easy steps you can make succulent chicken and potato curry from Lucknow; delicious prawn stir fry from Behghal; creamy cauliflower curry with ginger and chard; delicious Sri Lankan beef with coconut miles; tasty potatoes with cumin and mustard seeds; a spicy dip with beans (canned of course) cumin seeds, chillies and lime juice. Here are over 150 recipes, together with Madhur's top tips, shortcuts and store cupboard essentials. As beautifully written as her bestselling Ultimate Curry Bible, this superb book is fully illustrated through with gorgeous colour photography, taken in Madhur's country home in upstate New York.

Whether you are cooking curry for the first time, or have plenty of culinary experience and are looking for quick and easy ideas, this mouth-watering collection of clear, simple and accessible recipes brings you all the tastes of India with the minimum of work.


A handsome book, clearly laid out and easy to follow. Classic Jaffrey, and a steal at the price
