Washington - Indian cooking expert Madhur Jaffrey is all set to return to TV with her first major new series after a gap of 17 years.

The 78-year-old will make the 10-part serial about the impact of curry on the UK for the Good Food channel.

Jaffrey had hosted her landmark programme ‘Indian Cookery’ for the BBC more than 30 years ago, and returned in 1995 with ‘The Flavours of India’.

She is also an actress, having appeared in films and TV shows including a stint 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.

But since the 1980s she has become renowned for her cookery series and numerous best-selling books, showcasing cuisine from the Indian subcontinent.

Indian-born Jaffrey was awarded an honorary CBE in 2004 for her services to drama and promoting the appreciation of Indian food and culture.

“She is in great form, and her unique passion, enthusiasm and insight will make this series very special for the viewers,” the BBC quoted Amanda Ross, the new series’ executive producer, as saying about Jaffrey.
