Chef Hemant Oberoi champions Indian spices

Chef Hemant Oberoi hopes to promote authentic Indian cuisine

Budding chefs have been urged to try the adventurous recipes of India by leading chef Hemant Oberoi.

The chef has launched an international bid to educate people on the proper use of Indian spices, such as turmeric, coriander, nutmeg and cumin.

"Kerala, Goa, Maharashtra... the regional cuisine of India is so rich. I am doing research and development to promote original recipes from India on a different platform," Mr Oberoi told IANS.

Furthermore, the chef has set up a new chain of Indian restaurants in Bombay Brasserie, London and Cape Town.

These new restaurants feature show kitchens so that diners can see the chefs preparing the spices and coincides with the release of his book Masala Art.

Mr Oberoi continued: "The use of spice is an art, but very few people treat it as such. In India, we have never taken food seriously. My book, named after one of my eateries, is about the art of spices; how to use spices differently."
