CURRY ON !!!! is the latest culinary creation of Chef Naveen Sachar, chef/owner of Naveen’s Cuisine (www.naveenscuisine.com), Chicago’s premier recreational cooking school. Naveen has hosted cooking classes since 2001, and this cookbook features some of his most popular recipes from the classroom, including Chicken Tikka Masala, Tandoori Murgh, Channa Masala, Gobi Matar, and Daal Makhani.
Too often, opinions about cooking Indian food are based on common misconceptions — it takes too long to prepare, it's too spicy, the ingredients are hard to find, etc. But with CURRY ON!!!!, Naveen debunks these myths and shows us just how easy it is to prepare Indian food that's as healthy and flavorful as it is delicious. The recipes are accompanied by mouth-watering photos, with instructional videos to help demonstrate hard-to-describe techniques. And every recipe has stood the test of time, having been prepared hundreds of times in both the classroom setting and in guests' homes, with the same delicious results.
CURRY ON! is divided into 4 chapters. The first is short and sweet — you'll meet the chef, learn about his cooking philosophy, and get an overview of some staple Indian spices and cooking tools. Chapter 2 covers basic food preparation and explains Naveen's preferred techniques in the kitchen. Chapter 3 features recipes for poultry, meat, shrimp, and fish, while Chapter 4 highlights vegetable, lentil, and bean dishes.
Naveen believes cooking should be relaxing, therapeutic and communal. So gather a few friends, put on some great music, pour yourself a drink, and CURRY ON!!!!

Fabulous, simple & delish!
I first met Naveen in January 2018 when I hosted my sister’s 40th birthday party at his cooking school and I wasn’t sure exactly how it would be received by my party of about 20 indian guests learning to cook indian food from him. But we were all blown away by how authentically fun the the experience was and how incredibly passionate he was about what he does and ultimately, just how simply delicous all the food we made was! I have since been obsessed with trying to schedule another time to get back to Naveen’s Cuisine for a class, but decided to buy this book in the meantime so I can learn more of his recipes. I just made the chana masala recipe from this book yesterday - and I can’t tell you just how delicious it was! And I am indian and have been eating chana masala for over 30 years - so that is saying a lot! Definitely check out this cookbook if you are looking for simple and authentic recipes.
I took a class with Naveen and really enjoyed it. My knife skills improved and it turns out that Indian cooking can be pretty straight forward, which is awesome because I love to cook and I love to eat Indian food. Glad to see he has a cookbook out.
Naveen’s recipes are the best!
My first class with Naveen was the beginning of a love affair (sssshhhh) with Indian cuisine. The dishes that we cooked that night are still my favorites and I make them often. And they are in this book! Naveen really makes Indian cooking approachable and, dare I say, easy?! I’m delighted to have a whole volume of his recipes!
