Indian Food Made Easy

Series 2

Episode 1: Keralan Cuisine

Duration: 30 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC Two EnglandLatest broadcast: on BBC Two Scotland

Following on from the success of Indian Food Made Easy, this second series takes Anjum on a journey to show how different regional flavours of the Indian subcontinent can be found up and down the country - from Gujarati cuisine in London to the spicy flavours of the Punjab found in Glasgow.

Anjum heads to Liverpool to meet Lyn, who works as a cook in the local hospital. Lyn often cooks traditional English food at charity events, and she is hoping to raise some money by selling hot food at a stall on Liverpool's biggest farmers' market. Only this time she is going to be cooking Indian food.

Liverpool is home to a large community of Keralans, and Anjum puts together a menu of classic South Indian dishes. There is sumptuous coconut chicken fry, delicious salmon fish wraps, and vegetable and rice noodles cooked in a mild broth.

First though, Anjum and Lyn head off to meet two local Keralans who are fantastic home cooks: Bina shows them how to make hot Keralan pickles whilst Jessy demonstrates how to make a fabulous salmon curry in a traditional Keralan clay pot.

Finally, with 5000 people passing through the gates of the farmers' market, Lyn has to rise to the occasion and get them buying her Indian food. Show less
