Hi there,

I'm looking to buy one of your books. The Curry Bible has 350+ pages and your first book The Curry Guy has around 160 pages.

Is the majority of the content in 'The Curry Guy' book duplicated in the book 'The Curry Bible' ?

I'm just getting into cooking curries from home again after afew years break and have used Pat Chapman' s book 'The Indian Restaurant Cookbook' for years, and it is now covered in Curry of various types on most of the pages I regularly use the recipies from! I need a new book to daub curry on the pages of!

The Bible contains a combination of the best recipes from my first three books with 50 new recipes so I would go for the Curry Guy Bible. Thanks very much. Dan

Hi Dan, loving the recipes from your curry bible book! What brand/specific brand of food colouring would you recommend? Not sure which is best.

Cheers James

Great you are enjoying my recipes. I don't have a brand that I favour so just buy whatever you can get hold of. Thanks Dan

Hi Dan,

Somebody in one of the curry groups has bought your Thai book and noticed that your Yellow Curry Paste recipe is a bit unclear.

I checked my copy and it states:

1½ tsp cardamom seeds ½ tsp green cardamom seeds (optional)

The query is whether the non-optional seeds should be green or black cardamom, as it's not specifically stated.

Thanks in advance,

I apologise, there is a typo which will be fixed in future editions. Use 1/2 teaspoon cardommon seeds taken from the inside of a green cardomonm pods. Thanks very much Dan

Hello Dan

The curry bible includes recipes for mixed powder and curry powder but most of the recipes I have noticed just use mixed powder. Are they interchangeable? The curry powder seems to have a lot more aromatics. If they are not interchangeable how would you use the curry powder?

Thanks very much

Hi Pete You could just buy curry powder as it is required to make mixed powder. However, if you make your own by roasting and grinding spices it will take things to a whole new level. Having said that, if you have made a lot of curry powder and don't feel like making the mixed powder just use the curry powder as it will still be very good. Thanks for buying my book, much appreciated. Dan
