    Help with Curry

    I love eating curry but don't really know where to begin with it. I have done some research trying to find books and recipes online but there is just too much information on it. Anyone have any recommended books on the different styles of curry and how to make them. If there is a little history and background on each that would be a huge bonus. Thanks.

    My favorite books on this cuisine:

    http://www.amazon.com/Cooking-Home-P...g+with+pedatha

    http://www.amazon.com/Indian-Home-Co...ng+suvir+saran

    http://www.amazon.com/Great-Curries-...urries+panjabi

    They cover things beyond curry and also cover styles from the south to the north.

    Curry Do not go out & buy a large container of curry powder. It has a shelf life & goes bad. Fresh is best. Lots of fresh ginger & garlic.

    Curry fragrant dishes India, Thailand, Malaysia, & Indonesia is a good one

    Not a big fan of Japanese curry too sweet for my taste. Love Indian, Thai. Vietnam makes good curry too.

    I love Japanese curry, the too sweet ones are cause they add sugar or honey.

    A little sugar can enhance flavor. The Japanese curry places here use too much sugar for me, a lot of people do like the sweet curries so it is just my opinion. I use cinnamon, even throw a banana in the pot for sweetness.
