MUMBAI: TLC celebrates Indian curries with the culinary maestro Madhur Jaffery in Madhur Jaffery's Curry Nation. The 10-part series follows Madhur as she travels across Britain, visiting local Indian and South Asian communities and reveals how it’s possible to sample the whole of Indian cuisine without leaving the British Isles.
Madhur Jaffery's Curry Nation will premiere on 2 June and will air every Monday to Friday at 8PM only on TLC.
From London to Birmingham and Glasgow to Leicester, Madhur Jaffery's Curry Nation sees Madhur creating her very own food map, witnessing first-hand how Indian food has been integrated into the national way of life and discovering why it's constantly voted as one of the nation's favourite foods.
In Madhur Jaffery's Curry Nation, Madhur showcases her favourite recipes with influences from all over the subcontinent: Punjabi, Goan, Parsi and Bengali amongst others. Madhur’s recipes reflect the vitality of the vibrant Indian culture, but stays true to her mantra that Indian food doesn’t need to be complicated.
Rahul Johri, Executive Vice President and General Manager-South Asia and Head of Revenue, Pan- Regional Ad Sales & Southeast Asia, Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific said, “TLC continues to present the best and premium range of cuisine programmes from across the globe. This June, we have culinary legend Madhur Jaffrey in her new series Madhur Jaffery's Curry Nation celebrating the British love affair with Indian cuisine.”
In each episode, Madhur demonstrates how to cook incredible curry step-by-step and takes viewers through an array of amazing recipes. Madhur’s style of cooking is always innovative and contemporary – she gives some traditional recipes a twist like pairing Aloo Gobi with a British roast lamb.
She also visits restaurants that create exciting new dishes, places of worship where traditional curries are served daily, and the homes of British South Asians, where she uncovers their different and varied culinary cultures. Madhur discovers that although traditional recipes are to be found everywhere, new British versions of classic dishes are emerging too. Whether it’s the spicy, lentil-based specialties of Rajasthan, kebabs and kormas from Delhi, or coconut-infused curries from Kerala, viewers will get a chance to accompany Madhur on her very personal tour of the modern-day Curry Nation.
