The Curry Guy

Dan Toombs (aka The Curry Guy) has perfected the art of replicating British Indian Restaurant (BIR) cooking, after travelling around the UK sampling dishes, learning the curry house kitchen secrets and refining those recipes at home. In other words, Dan makes homemade curries that taste just like a takeaway from your favourite local – but in less time and for less money. Through the comments left on his blog and social media feeds, Dan has learnt that people are terribly let down when they make a chicken korma or a prawn bhuna from other cookbooks and it tastes nothing like the dish they experience when they visit a curry house … but they thank him for getting it right. The Curry Guy shows all BIR food lovers around the world how to make their favourite dishes at home. Each of the classic curry sauces are given, including tikka masala, korma, dopiaza, pasanda, madras, dhansak, rogan josh, vindaloo, karahi, jalfrezi, bhuna and keema. Popular vegetable and sides dishes, such as aloo gobi, saag aloo and tarka dhal, are there as accompaniments, plus samosas, pakoras, bhaji, pickles, chutneys and raitas. Of course, no curry is complete without rice or naan, and Dan shows you how to cook perfect pilau rice or soft pillowy naan every time.
