In 1989 when she published her bestselling "The Curry Secret" Kris wrote...

"Many difficulties stand in the way of anyone trying to explore the secrets of Indian restaurant cooking. People buy an Indian cookbook but find that the traditional recipes and methods can be disappointing when they produce a home-cooked taste and not the distinct flavour of restaurant curries. This is not really surprising as the art of restaurant cooking is a very closely kept secret, next to impossible to uncover.


A top chef guards his trade secrets closely, knowing that he may become dispensable should the proprietor acquire his skills. A proprietor who is also the chef aims to satisfy his customers, but also keeps his knowledge close to his heart.


Almost twenty years ago, at the risk of upsetting my contemporaries, I chose to reveal all in my first book, The Curry Secret - Indian Restaurant Cookery at Home.


The Curry Secret shows you simply and precisely how to create the curries you love, in your own kitchen, using the same techniques as your favourite restaurants. Secret recipes, special little ‘tricks of the trade’, are all included to give you the knowledge to reproduce that special taste that, until now, may well have eluded you".


Now, my new book containing over 100 new recipes, reflects the great variety of exciting NEW INDIAN DISHES available in Indian restaurants today. I hope you enjoy it.
