Madhur Jaffrey to return to TV screens this year

 
Three decades after she introduced Indian food to the UK, curry queen Madhur Jaffrey is set to return to TV screens with a new series exploring the impact of Indian cuisine in Britain.

The 10-part series – titled Madhur Jaffrey’s Curry Nation – will see the chef visiting cities across Britain; from London to Leicester, Birmingham to Glasgow.

Jaffrey will cook alongside members of the UK’s Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi communities to learn about their different techniques, as well as offering her own take on classic dishes.

The idea that Indian cooking does not have to take hours will be a theme that underpins the series.

Indian-born Jaffrey fronted her landmark program ‘Indian Cookery’ for the BBC more than 30 years ago.

She has written numerous cookery books and even appeared in films and TV shows, including in Eastenders.

In 1965, she won best actress at the Berlin Film Festival for her performance in Shakespeare Wallah and is said to have introduced film-making partners James Ivory and Ismail Merchant.

Madhur Jaffrey’s Curry Nation will air at the end of this year.
