    Depends what you are expecting. Korma is derived from the Hindi word meaning 'braised' so the sauce you use to braise whatever it is you are cooking could be anything. Unfortunately, westernized Indian restaurants have this 'code' whereby korma means mild and creamy with nuts (usually almonds...

    I'm looking for authentic curry recipies

    Unfortunately 'authentic' is a fairly broad term. India is a big place and they do things differently from one region to another. Madhur Jaffrey is certainly good - I have read most of her books at one time in the past (I have been cooking Indian food for about 30 years) and there are other...

    Making curry healthier

    I cook a lot of curries with yoghurt - you have to be a bit careful, especially if there are acidic ingredients as well (lime tamarind etc) but it can all be done without curdling if you are careful. Curries, properly prepared are naturally very healthy; the spices, mustard oil, onions and...

    Drinks with curries

    Absolutely. Don't drink water - alcoholic drinks aren't much good either - save that till afterwards. With the meal drink tea (flavoured with cardamom is good) or lassi Andy

    What is curry?

    That's about right. It's an English word to describe spicy Eastern (and particularly Indian) dishes. You can start looking at the etymology (and indeed it probably does stem from the Tamil kari) but this doesn't mean much Andy
