    It is now more transparent than ever that to enjoy optimal health our body needs a diet low in fat and calories and rich in nutrient-dense superfoods. Science has championed this as a model diet. But superfoods are not only the exotic shrink-wrapped foods found schmoozing in the health and chilled sections of our local supermarkets they are also many of the everyday healthy foods that we take for granted. But its not just about superfood Indian food brazenly employs the use of spices more than any other major world cuisine. Many of these spices have been acknowledged for their medicinal properties thus superspices.

    Madhur Jaffrey, television's most-loved Indian cook, returns to our screens for a major new series for the Good Food Channel in October 2012. Travelling across Britain, visiting local Indian and South Asian communities, Madhur reveals how it's possible to sample virtually the whole of Indian cuisine without ever leaving the British Isles. In the official tie-in book to the series, Madhur showcases her favourite recipes with influences from all over the subcontinent: Punjabi, Goan, Parsi and Bengali amongst others. Madhur's recipes conjure up the colour and vitality of this vibrant culture, but keep to her mantra that Indian food doesn't need to be complicated. Always, innovative and contemporary, Madhur will even give some of these traditional recipes a twist - pairing Aloo Gobi with a very British roast lamb, for example. Whether it's the spicy, lentil-based specialities of Rajesthan, kebabs and kormas from Delhi, or coconut-infused curries from Kerala, we will accompany Madhur on her very personal tour of our modern-day Curry Nation.
