Chicken Madras from Quick Meals from The Curry House   The picture shows my version of Chicken Madras from my book, Quick Meals from The Curry House.

The exciting news is that I am going to be visiting Chennai (formerly known as Madras) in a few weeks time. Now, I know well enough that Chicken Madras is the invention of Indian restaurants in Britain so I'm very excited that I will soon be sampling authentic Chennai food. I'll be Tweeting regularly as I go, and you can follow my culinary travels on @CurryCookbook and on The Curry House website.

After Chennai, I'll be visiting Bengaluru (Bangalore). I'm looking forward to tasting the local food there too and will be visiting markets and other foodie attractions. I will, of course, be posting photos along the way.
