Welcome to my world of great curry recipes!
Hi – I’m Dan and I love cooking recipes from all over the Indian subcontinent and Asia.
Each of these ‘great curry recipes‘ have been written by me and with the help of my wife, Caroline we have taken step by step photographs of most of the recipes. We are still working on it and will eventually have all of the recipe instructions with step by step photos and videos. Watch this space! New recipes photos, videos and recipes are added regularly.
I am a freelance food writer/blogger and author of “The Curry Guy – Recreate over 100 of the Best British Indian Restaurant dishes at Home“. These recipes have all been tested – some hundreds of times – by me in my own home kitchen.
“The Curry Guy is a legend.” Atul Kochhar
“What makes a great curry? Passion. The Curry Guy’s love for British Indian Restaurant curry lies at the heart of this book.” Vivek Singh
“What a book! Just wonderful. Brings the very best of the curry house, into your home.” Tom Parker Bowles
I have also written three further cookbooks “The Curry Guy Easy”, “The Curry Guy Veggie” and ‘The Curry Guy Light’ and have three more cookbooks on the way in 2020 and 2021. This website is my place to test recipes and share them with you.
I first started learning to cook Indian food in my late 20s and over the past 30 years I have learned quite a lot. I hope to pass my cooking experiences on to you. I am currently writing a Thai cookbook so you can expect to see a lot of Thai recipes on the site now too.
Keep These Great Curry Recipes Great by Using the freshest Ingredients!
Do not worry too much about getting the measure exactly right. Once you begin to experiment – as I have done – and learn the flavours of the different ingredients, you will be able to create these great curry recipes without the use of a recipe.
I have been served some amazing dishes by top curry chefs around the world. No two dishes are the same. One chef’s lamb rogan josh will taste different to another chef’s lamb rogan josh.
Follow my great curry recipes and you will learn that part of the fun of cooking great Indian cuisine is putting a bit of yourself into the dish by your use of different spices and herbs. That is what I find so fun about this amazing cuisine.
If there is one thing I could recommend to ensure your dishes taste great, it is to use locally reared produce, fish and meat whenever possible. I love going to farmers markets to source my food because I know the quality of the food will be much higher than what you can find in the large supermarkets.
I would love to hear from you. Please try my recipes and let me know what you think. Have you improved them in any way? Feel free to share.
