CHEF Kowsar Miah has been crowned the king of curry by a leading magazine.

For his cooking at the Mowchak Tandoori Indian Restaurant, in Havant Road, Drayton, the 36-year-old picked up an award for being the south’s best curry chef at a ceremony in London.

He took over as chef at the restaurant – which has been going strong since 1989 – from his father and uncle and told The News he was especially proud of his tandoori murgh masallam, which contains chicken, lamb mince and egg.

He said: ‘This is the first thing I have won – I’m very happy. The ceremony was great because I met other chefs and got to see their different ways of cooking.’

Picking up his prize from Curry Life magazine, Kowsar got to demonstrate his skills live on Bangla TV.
