Since I started writing my blog back in 2010, it has been the British Indian restaurant (BIR) recipes that have been the most popular. In The Curry Guy cookbook, my first printed book, I walk you through how to make the most popular curry house starter dishes, classic British curries, tandoori recipes and side dishes.
From mild chicken tikka masala and korma to fiery hot Madras and vindaloo, the recipes are all in The Curry Guy Cookbook.
I also show you how to substitute different ingredients so that you can make the perfect curry for your taste. Most of the meat recipes can easily be made vegetarian!
Instructions are given so that you can easily make the curry of your choice. Don’t want chicken tikka masala but would love to make a lamb tikka masala instead? This cookbook offers the information you need to do that with perfect results every time. Following is a list of the recipes you will be able to make from the book:

I have put my all into ‘The Curry Guy’ cookbook! I knew what to feature in it because of all the great and much appreciated comments on my blog. It has been a lot of fun working with my new friends at Quadrille Publishing.
They have put together a cookbook that I am over the moon with and I hope you enjoy it too. As many of you know, I am always on Twitter and Facebook and will be around to answer any recipes questions you might have.
Thank you very much.
All the best,
