Iyer grew up in Mumbai (Bombay), but he has lived in the United States for most of his adult life. He's an acclaimed cooking teacher and the author of several other cookbooks, and his impressive new title is a wide-ranging guide to the curries of the Indian subcontinent, including Pakistan, Nepal, and Sri Lanka. Iyer explains that Indian curries are not based on a can of curry powder and that the term "curry" refers to any dish simmered in or covered with a fragrant, spicy (though not necessarily hot) sauce or gravy. The hundreds of recipes include appetizer curries such as Skewered Chicken with Creamy Fenugreek Sauce, main-course curries like Yogurt-Marinated Lamb with Ginger and Garlic, and "contemporary curries" such as Wild Salmon with Chiles, Scallions, and Tomato; there are also recipes for "curry cohorts"—rice, bread, and other accompaniments. Highly recommended.[Page 120]. Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
