“When Harvey Day’s first curry book was published in 1955, it was greeted with acclaim.  Here was a book of authentic Indian recipes with clear and simple instructions, specifying readily available ingredients.  Since then the second, third and fourth curry books, offering between them recipes for an immense selection of Eastern dishes, have been similarly welcomed by a growing elite of curry fanciers.
Now all four books have been combined in The Complete Book of Curries, to make a unique compendium of Asian cuisine – curries, kababs, pilaus, savouries, relishes, chutneys, and pickles, breads, soups and sweets are all covered here.  New recipes have been introduced, among them Lamb-Rice Birianee, a dish specially devised for the beginner.  By following this recipe, a perfect Indian curry can be served at the very first attempt.”
