I am already a proud owner of the Gurry Guy's first two recipe books, which are excellent. This third book is no exception!
As with his other two books, the recipes are easy to follow and most are accompanied by good photos.
I was a little concerned he may just replicate some of the veggie recipes from his first two books, which would have made it just another veggie curry book.
But luckily these are all new recipes and for me is a great balance of Indian restaurant dishes to genuine Indian street food and snacks, which he has picked up from his travels in India. Its a great balance and the combination works well.
For me, the reason this book works is because it is not just full of the obvious Onion Bhajee’s or Veggie Samosas. They have been covered in other books.
I am not a vegetarian but I consider myself a Gastronaut. I have a passion for great food, love cooking and feel a good recipe book should inspire you. And this book does. So if you are like me, you will love this book.
Also, if you haven’t already bought the first two books (red cover & blue cover) I would certainly recommend.
