Just grind them as best you can in a pestle and mortar. Thanks Dan

Hello Dan,

Thank you for all your great recipes! I recently purchased The Curry Guy Veggie and I was wondering how you get the yellow split peas soft when you fry them dry before adding them to the rest of the ingredients? I made the yellow split pea chutney but the split peas remained too hard to enjoy the chutney. Blending them did not do the trick. Thank you so much. I have to cook for a big group soon and I love using your book for all of the recipes.

Kind regards, Sabine

I am really sorry but I am away from home at the moment and I don't have a copy of the book. All the recipes were tested so it should work but I will check when I am home in 2 weeks and get back to you if that is OK. I am really glad you're enjoying the recipes so hope you can get this one right. Thanks Dan

Hi Dan love your book the curry bible. My quests do you think you could cook your chicken korma in a slow cooker. Or any of the curries for that matter.

Hi Dan, I have purchased your The Curry Guy Bible and are totaly amazed. Since we got it we cook your curries at least twice a week :D My question is: We got a friend who got multiple incompatibilities. Amongst others she cant eat Tomatos, Chillis, and Bell Papper... However she always loved the smell of your curries and is frustrated that she cant try them her self. I searched the Curry Bible but did not find a fitting recipie. Do you think where is a way to anyhow adapt a given recipie taking those incompatibilities into account? Or is there already a recipie that does? Many thanks Chris and Marie

Hi I am glad you are enjoying my recipes. I would just miss out the ingredients that your friend can't tolerate. It is fine to alter my recipes a bit and to make them your own so you could always add alternative ingredients that your friend enjoys. If they sound good in the curry, they probably are. Thanks very much. Dan

Your curry base sauce is a literal game changer. Thank you so much. Everyone on my holiday list will be getting a copy of your book(s) in conjunction with my rave reviews.
