Duration: 30 minutes

Following on from the success of Indian Food Made Easy, this second series takes Anjum Anand on a journey to show how different regional flavours of the Indian subcontinent can be found up and down the country. From Bengali cuisine in London to the spicy flavours of the Punjab found in Glasgow.

Anjum heads to Bradford to meet Jessica, a volunteer chef on board a classic steam train that winds its way through the stunning Yorkshire dales. She and her team have never given the 50 or so fee-paying guests who dine on the train an Indian menu, but now she wants to give it a go.

Bradford is home to a large community of Kashmiris, and Anjum puts together a menu of fabulous Kashmiri dishes. First up is a traditional Rogan Josh, rich, hearty and full of flavour. Jessica plans to serve it on the train with a pilaf, so she and Anjum visit the restaurant kitchens of Mohammed Aslam, a local Kashmiri chef, to find out how to make the perfect rice dish.

Then back in the kitchen Jessica discovers how to make delicious peppers, stuffed with spicy paneer - an Indian cheese. For dessert there is angel vermicelli, topped with orange cream.

Finally with a packed train eagerly awaiting their first Indian feast as it chugs through the countryside, Jessica has a battle in front of her to get it all cooked on time in her tiny kitchen.
