Nadiya Hussain releases spicy cookbook

“This is my world, it has been from the moment I took a whiff of my mum's cooking. Spices need  not be daunting. 

Don’t believe everything you hear. Spices are robust, they add flavour, add colour and spices make food taste out of this world. I want to make spices a part of your world. So this book  features my favourite spices that have been used in my family for three generations and it is time to  share the love that we cook up everyday.” – Nadiya

 Cardamom, fennel, cinnamon, turmeric, cumin, chilli, bay leaves and curry powder are all the spices  needed to create any recipe in this book. Nadiya uses these eight readily available spices at home to  cook her most-loved meals, the same spices that her mum uses and her Nani used before her.  

From beautiful breakfasts, midday lunches and staples, to tips for the perfect saucepan of rice, our  favourite middle of the table curries, vegetables, side dishes and sweets, readers will be confident in  cooking extraordinary family food, filled to the brim with easy-to-achieve flavour. 

Recipe highlights from Nadiya’s Simple Spices include: Bombay Potatoes, Crispy Leek Biryani, Saag Aloo  Chicken Jalfrezi and Kulfi Ice Cream Bars. 

Since winning 2015's Great British Bake Off in a finale watched by over 13 million viewers, Nadiya  Hussain has become a national treasure. She has presented many of her own BBC2 cookery series to  great acclaim, with episodes reaching on average 1.9 million viewers each week. Her next cookery  series, Nadiya's Simple Spices, will air on BBC2 in autumn 2023, accompanied by her brand-new TV tie-in cookbook.
