King of curry unveiled

A Sheffield chef has been crowned the king of curry.

Mukter Ali, who works at the Vine Indian Cuisine in Mosborough was voted best chef at the annual Curry Life Awards.

He collected his award in front of an audience of more than 600 people at a gala event in London.

Vine manager Iqbal Hussain Shoeb, said: “He is an amazing chef and whatever he touches tastes great. Ever since opening of this place, we are going from strength to strength thanks to his efforts.

“Customers often come in and ask him to rustle up something special that isn’t on the menu and he is comfortable doing that at the drop of a hat - he loves experimentation.”

The awards celebrate Indian cuisine in the UK.
