In 1999 voice-over artist Manju Malhi beat hundreds of other contestants to secure a guest cookery slot on BBC2's FOOD AND DRINK. Since then she has presented her own television show for Taste called SIMPLY INDIAN and she is the face behind Tamarind Fine Foods.Review:
Many Indians, on arriving in this country, found a lack of their familiar cooking ingredients. The result initially, was improvisation with an eclectic mix of traditional British and authentic Indian: curried baked beans, Indian-style bubble and squeak and spam masala. With today's multicultural society and proliferation of Eastern food markets, Indian ingredients are easy to get hold of - even from the supermarket. But that fusion of Brit-Indian cookery survives, and Manju Malhi provides a fascinating insight into this peculiarly British/Indian form of cooking. Chatty, fresh writing infuses the book along with her youthful enthusiasm for the subject. Like many people today, she is keen to eat good, fresh food made in the minimum of time - hence her ten minute Chicken Korma! Chutneys, breads, puddings, vegetarian and meat dishes, the range is individual, easy-to-make and clearly explained, accompanied by tempting colour photographs to whet the appetite. Nearly all the recipes can be made within half an hour and embrace a wide range of ingredients for a truly Brit-Spice experience. - Lucy Watson
