Madhur Jaffrey’s Ultimate Curry Bible is an essential curry cook book for anyone that likes a good curry and thinks they have tried them all. The book is a informative and an all encompassing guide to the world of curry – with recipes from many different countries such as Kenya, South Africa and Japan as well as India, Pakistan and Malaysia.
One of our favourites in the Curry Bible is a Kenyan dish – Green Coriander Chicken (Dahania Chicken) and you can find the recipe here. It is so easy and quick to make plus super light and healthy.
The Silken Chicken Tikka Masala involves two recipes; as to make the curry you need to make the kebabs first. So for a mid week meal you can stop at the unbelievably tender kebabs or go a step further and make a stunning, simple curry.

If you enjoy reading about the origins of curry and how they have been adapted for Western tastes then this cookbook is a interesting read. Now that I have made The Royal Chicken Korma (“a real Indian Korma”) – there is no going back. According to Jaffrey, in the West, Korma’s are “mild and creamy” and for those that do not like hot food! You will be the King or Queen of Indian banquet dinner parties if you get hold of this book.
