Nina's Heavenly Delights

Nina's Heavenly Delights

Available on Prime Video
Nina grew up in a world of strong spices and exotic curry dishes prepared by her father, Mohan, in his Glasgow curry house - the New Taj. At the time they were inseparable and she was the apple chutney of his eye. Things changed when Nina, unable to go ahead with an arranged marriage, leaves Glasgow for good. She only returns for her father’s funeral (which is where the story begins), to find that the local bookmaker owns half of the New Taj in payment for a gambling debt and negotiations are underway to sell the place to her father’s nearest rival – The Jewel in the Crown – owned by Sanjay, the man she left at the altar. The thought of Sanjay owning the Taj stirs Nina into action and she decides that the only way to save the takeover is to make the Taj ‘The best in the West’ winner for a third time – a feat that no other curry restaurant has ever achieved. Nina is helped in her task by Lisa, the bookmaker’s daughter who befriends her, and together they try to recreate Mohan’s award winning dishes. Add Nina’s cross dressing brother, Bobbi, plus her kilt wearing sister, Priya, and Suman their mother (who surprises them all in the end), and you have the perfect recipe for a romantic comedy that’s all set to be as heart warming as Mohan’s famous chicken shakuti.
