If you’ve followed my reviews for any length of time, you may know that I’ve been a huge fan of Raghavan Iyer’s 660 Curries since it came out in 2008. Where 660 Curries was overflowing, the new book, Indian Cooking Unfolded, is relatively spare – just 100 recipes, just 10 ingredients. But Iyer remains unfailingly generous with tips and guidance; and while the flavors may be less painstakingly constructed, they remain clear and strong. Foldout photograph sections are a big help with some basic techniques.
An excellent entry point for anyone interested in exploring this complex, fulfilling cuisine.
