International recognition for curry chef

By timesecholife on in All News, Featured News

THE HEAD chef of an Indian restaurant in the Moorlands has received an accolade for his work in showcasing “the Best of British Curry” in Asia. Muhammad Ali from the Roshni Restaurant on Cheadle Road in Forsbrook was part of a “super curry chef team” which travelled to Kolkata, India, earlier this month as part of the Taste of Britain Curry Festival; an event that offered the best that the Great British curry scene has to offer. The day was organised by UK magazine 'Curry Life' at the five-star RaajKutir Hotel with the much acclaimed Cambridge-born “Michelin Laureate chef” Mark Poynton also showcasing his food at the festival.

Roshni’s Muhammad said: “I have cooked in various competitions, but cooking British curry in the city of Kolkata, India, was a real challenge because, this was once the proud capital of British Raj in India and it also has a big Anglo-Indian Community.

We gave our diners the best of British high street favourites curry dishes such as Chicken Tikka Massala, Zalfrezi and Balti Dishes.”

Mr Ali was presented with his accolade in recognition of his work by British Deputy High Commissioner to Kolkata, Bruce Bucknall.

A spokesperson for the awards organisers said: “Good food can unite people, and in that regard Britain and India are no exception.

This festival was an effort to celebrate the friendship of our two great curry-loving nations, Britain and India.”

There are around 12,000 Indian restaurants currently trading in the UK with around one million people in Britain eating a curry dish each day.
