Synopsis

Many Indian ladies left their home villages with their husbands, searching for a better future. 

They found their home in a place known as the land of the long white cloud: New Zealand. Bringing their knowledge of spices, they brought their Indian flavours, colours and traditions.

The next generation, generations after, and even their kiwi friends and families ask these mothers how to make a great curry. With a typical response that we hear all too often.

"A little bit of this and a little bit of that," often questioned, but how much is that?

Jayshri and her mother, Laxmi, explore these dishes and hope to have found an answer that they would like to share with you.
