INDIAN RESTAURANT CURRY AT HOME VOLUMES 1 & 2 ARE NOW AVAILABLE FROM SPICY JOES!

The Books

I wouldn’t have believed it if you’d told me 6 years ago that I’d end up writing two cookbooks about British Indian restaurant (BIR) style food! What started off as a single YouTube video experiment eventually ballooned into a large portfolio of over a hundred tutorial videos of my recipes, with almost 5 million views, covering virtually everything you would see on an Indian restaurant or takeaway menu.

Originally intended only as relatively easy-to-produce Kindle eBook versions (which went on to sell many thousands), I decided to take the bold step to self-publish INDIAN RESTAURANT CURRY AT HOME VOLUME 1 in 2018, followed by its standalone counterpart VOLUME 2 in 2019. To date (April 2020) many thousands of the paperbacks have sold and they are constantly near the top of the Amazon rankings in the ‘Indian Food & Drink’ category. Both books have 5-star overall review ratings from many thrilled customers.

To my surprise and delight, both volumes have won the renowned Gourmand Worldwide Food Award for Best Self-Published UK cookbook (Volume 1 – 2019, Volume 2 – 2020).

Being an independent publisher has its challenges: marketing the books is difficult when you don’t have the clout of a major commercial publisher, who can summon up radio interviews, full page national newspaper spreads, and even TV appearances. Also, I’ve had to learn many new skills and wear many hats, as well as being the chief cook and bottle washer.

A lot of credit is down to the generosity of people telling the world about my books by word of mouth. I’ve lost count of the number of people who have told me they hadn’t heard of them but bought them simply on recommendation from a friend or family member.

So, if you are one of the many thousands of happy owner of either of INDIAN RESTAURANT CURRY AT HOME VOLUMES 1 and 2, thank you for supporting me, and please do spread the word wherever you can. Free poppadoms all round!

You will find a selection of popular recipes taken from both my books on the Recipes page.

To potential customers, I urge you to look through some of the reviews posted on Amazon. Please see below for a small selection of my books’ reviews. And to help you learn more about what’s in them, please watch the two videos which give you a tour of the contents.

Indian Restaurant Curry at Home – Volume 1 | 10 September 2019

Great recipes which so far have all Been excellent. I am a seasoned Indian cook, so am fussy about the results. What is particularly good is that it is a very large sized book and the font is large and the pictures to support are also great. I’m not having sight troubles, but when you are cooking it’s good to be able to see the recipe and directions at a glance instead of continually having to peer at the text to read it. Highly recommended!

Both books are fantastic, I live in Ireland and haven’t found a good Indian restaurant. So been able to make a curry like you would get back in Birmingham is a dream come true.

Very very informative with great tips and hints. Detailed instructions for each recipe. Misty’s YouTube channel
has these recipes. Good to watch how it’s done. Printed on quality gloss paper with excellent photos. An absolute
must for anybody wanting to learn B.I.R (British Indian Restaurant) cooking.

Once you get over the nervousness of using slightly unusual ingredients, the recipes are easy to follow and the results are amazing.
Do try to buy in the right ingredients and if you have time and freezer space, make the base sauce.
You won’t be disappointed.

Indian Restaurant Curry at Home – Volume 1 |20 February 2018

Eating out at Indian Restaurants is hit and miss and takeaways often disappoint. After trying many recipes I found Misty Ricardo and now we won’t eat out because it’s not as good as we make. Chicken Bhuna last night with fresh ingredients and pillar rice was as good as anything anywhere. He has a simple methodology where things happen right for you and a link to YouTube for a demo before you start. So glad I bought it.

Fantastic recipes and very authentic, as with all great tasting food, it does take effort and time. Very well worth it if you want restaurant quality BIR
