Bangladeshi Tommy miah honoured as 'curry king'

Today his “Raj” restaurant in the Scottish capital Edinburgh has achieved worldwide fame.
Queen Elizabeth II wrote the foreword to his latest book, a move described by Buckingham Palace as the queen’s first and last celebrity endorsement.

Miah also bagged a place in the Guinness Book of Records for cooking the world’s biggest curry, while his International Indian Chef of the Year competition is now in its 14th year.

Today, the majority (around 80%) of Britain’s “Indian” restaurants are actually run by Bangladeshis.
