Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Iyer (The Turmeric Trail) makes the enormous spectrum of Indian curry dishes enticing and accessible in this hefty tome, bound to be a must-have for lovers of Indian cuisine. Cooks already familiar with this food will be inspired as they cook through its pages. The term curry encompasses a vast range of dishes, and Iyer has uncovered the best from the subcontinent's many regions and cultures, working his way from Goa (chicken in coconut milk sauce) to Kashmir (hearty braised lamb shanks in broth), Calcutta (tilapia in yogurt sauce), Kerala (spinach in pigeon pea-coconut sauce), and everywhere between. The largest chapter features an extraordinary selection of curries using India's rainbow of legumes, but Iyer includes meat, cheese, fish and vegetable curries, plus appetizers and snacks, biryanis and elegant rice variations and breads. Access to a well-stocked Indian grocery is vital, but past that hurdle Iyer makes the recipes quite approachable thanks to his chatty introductions, many thoughtful preparation tips and helpful ingredient glossary.

From the Back Cover

Curry is the gateway to Indian cooking. It is the backbone of Indian cooking, it's the glory of Indian cooking. Curry has nothing to do with powder in a can and everything to do with amazing flavors. Curry is the dazzling layering of spices and ingredients, the familiar made new and the exotic made accessible. Not to mention all that tasty sauce to mop up with rice or bread.

660 Curries is Salmon with Garlic and Turmeric, Grilled Chicken with Cashew-Tomato Sauce, Lamb Shanks Braised in a Fennel and Cumin-Kissed Broth, Toasted Tamarind-Rubbed Shrimp, Pork Ribs with a Sweet-Sour Glaze. 660 Curries is traditional, contemporary, extraordinary, and it's jam-packed with easy one-dish dinners that dance on the palate, in recipes created for the home kitchen.

This book is almost overwhelming. Thicker than some of my uni text books (but perhaps more read).

I will not lie to you - these recipes are not quick by any means. Indian cooking takes time, effort and a multitude of spices to get the flavouring just right. For vegetarians, there is a huge volume of options (for meat eaters there is a ton too). Every "curry" recipe that I can think of is here... and more - much, much more....

This is a great book to have for figuring out what to do with almost every vegetable and meat (and many options for each). For those of you who like pictures, there are none so be warned, this may not be the book for you... If you do not have Indian spices you will need to find a good Asian store to stock up.

660 curries is a lot of material and the recipes we've tried so far have been great. Warning: if you are not big on heat, adjust the curries for some of the recipes here...

Format: Paperback
I bought this book about six or seven months ago and have done a variety of recipes from it. I own a number of other Indian cookbooks but I find the flavors in this one most closely (very closely or are exactly) align with training I have received from Indian cooks and the flavors of food from these chefs and home cooks.

Advantages
1. Large selection of recipes including many vegetarian recipes.
2. Recipes are easy to follow
3. Many recipes are fairly fast to prepare compared to others I have done.
4. The flavors are spot on, often better than simply using spice pastes from the store
5. There are some simple background paragraphs on the recipes that add life to the book

Disadvantages
1. No pictures for those that like pictures. This isn't a show stopper for me.

I absolutely love Indian food, but I've never been able to find any good recipes from all my other traditional Indian cookbooks... until I found this book. Every single dish I've tried out of this book has not only been good, but absolutely fantastic! I cannot recommend this book enough! I am vegan myself, so I love the HUGE variety of fully vegetarian curries (and just sub olive oil for the ghee), but there are also a lot of fish and meat recipes in here too. If I ever need to use up a vegetable or bean or lentils, I just look up in the index which of the 660 recipes uses it, and bam, I'm set! That's how I discovered cabbage curry. Delicious! You get huge textbook of recipes for so cheap! What's not to love?

I have an Indian background, but never learnt Indian cooking at home. I bought this book, and i've found it really great- the recipes are easy to follow and include a handy list of English names for ingredients, and substitute spices which is great because not everything is available if you're not in India! I highly recommend for expats and beginner cooks.

The recipes are very well laid out and easy to follow. Some of the ingredients are not found in a common supermarket but easily in an Indian supermarket. Very tasty. There are so many recipes in this book that I'll be trying new ones for years to come and I look forward to that.

Excellent, excellent cookbook. I've made around 10 recipes from it so far and haven't been disappointed with any of them. Don't be discouraged by the long ingredient lists -- most will be spices and a lot of the recipes are actually quite simple. This book's definitely a keeper.
