Review by SmithSJ01
Having looked through this book I realised as we already own an extensive range of curry recipe books we have quite a few of them, so possibly take a look at the index page if you can, before you buy; otherwise you might end up with a duplication. However as the book is so inexpensive and offers a healthier variety of food then it may not matter to you having a duplication.Although the recipes are healthier you do still need to work out the nutritional information; for some reason I'd made the assumption that if the focus was on nutrition then this information would have been included. There's definitely one or two recipes I'd like to try that we don't have in other books and the addition of the colour photograph does go some way in helping to decide what we'd like to try. I've made some of our favourites already such as the Rendang and they taste fine and cook well from the instructions provided.I'm pleased I have a recipe book holder as with it being small it is difficult to keep open. The addition of one or two recipes in a book about curries can be misleading as to me peanut and cucumber salad and a curried omelette are not curries so perhaps the title is slightly misleading.Overall, this would be a good book to start with but if you already have a range of recipe books it might be worth checking the index first.
