Show 3 looking at Rogan Josh, Taj Mahal and Agra - 14/04/15
Show 3 : On my quest to find the best Rogan Josh, the TV series From‪#‎Birmingham‬ to ‪#‎Bombay‬ takes us to Agra and home of the Taj Mahal where we meet up with chef Narendra Sharma
We also meet up with legendary Chef Sanjeev Kapoor and I cook a scarlet curry on a grassy mound overlooking the Taj Mahal itself.
The mound was someone`s private garden but a perfect setting to do an impromptu cooking sequence. 
As we were not allowed to cook within the grounds of the Taj itself, as soon as I saw the location, it just had to be done!. 
Needless to say an army of helpers came to the rescue finding a table, a bbq, ingredients, fuel etc etc.. within an hour were up and running!. Hope you enjoy.
