The best Indian food is cooked (and eaten) at home. Real Indian food is fresh, simple and packed with flavour. Tune in to a brand new episode of Sharp & Hot as guest host Joe Carson is joined by Meera Sodha, author of MADE IN INDIA. In the book, Meera introduces Britain to the food she grew up eating here every day. Unlike the stuff you get at your local curry house, her food is fresh, vibrant and surprisingly quick and easy to make. In this collection, Meera serves up a feast of over 130 delicious recipes collected from three generations of her family: there’s everything from hot chappatis to street food, fragrant curries, to colourful side dishes and mouth-watering puddings.

"When you're a kid and you eat stuff your mom puts in front of you, you don't think to ask where it came from or what the origin of the dish is." [06:00]
