We're delighted that Anjum Anand is joining us for a webchat about Indian food on Thursday 20 March between midday and 1pm.

Anjum grew up in London and has presented two series of BBC TV's Indian Food Made Easy and written five bestselling books and now has her own internationally stocked range of Indian sauces, chutneys and pickles, The Spice Tailor. Anjum Anand is on a mission to bring Indian food up to date. Very health-conscious herself, she is constantly working to bring down the fat content of Indian food, creating lighter, fresher dishes with all the rich, spicy flavours of the subcontinent.

Anjum's latest book Anjum's Quick and Easy Indian shows how we can all create a delicious curry in just 20 minutes, and provides tips on stocking your cupboards with time-saving 'cheat' ingredients and a plethora of hints on how to make cooking Indian at home as easy as possible, while the 'Take One' feature shows you how to make three great meals from just one store cupboard ingredient.

Join Anjum on Thursday at lunchtime or post a question in advance to this thread. Everyone who joins the webchat will be entered into a draw to win a SIGNED copy of Anjum's Quick and Easy Indian.

Can we ask a question from MNHQ - what is your never-fail recipe that you back to time and time again that can be used for family meal or last minute dinner party?

I suppose the curry we always had as a family was chicken curry. It is in a couple of my books (Punjabi Chicken Curry in Anjum;s New Indian and also in I Love Curry) as it is the best chicken curry and reminds me of my childhood. Great with Indian breads but also with toast. I talk with experience as my friends and i would always raid the fridge for leftovers at the end of an evening out and toast some bread to go with it. Divine. I will see if MUmsnet can find a link. xx

Thank you all for your questions. It is really great to know what everyone is cooking and eating! Also, keep a look out for the video of me cooking Quickest EverTarka Dal on Mumsnet from my new book Quick and Easy Indian. xx

Wasn't she kind linking out so many recipes? Usually with cooking webcast it's all about plugging the book. I'm now a fan smile
