Jehu's win on Woolies shelves for Recipe to Riches
IF YOU are shopping at Woolworths today, be on the lookout for Manju Jehu's Authentic Vegetable Samosas in the frozen food aisle.
Manju, who has served as Ipswich's honorary Indian ambassador for almost a decade, was the winner of last night's Recipe to Riches show on Channel 10.
The innovative series takes much-loved home recipes from everyday Australians and turns them into top-selling products on the shelves of Woolworths supermarkets.
As this week's winner, the 58-year-old's culinary creation will be sold for a limited time at stores across the country.
If her product is sold more than the other weekly winners, she will claim the grand prize of $100,000 and a partnership with Woolworths.
Growing up in India, Manju said she has always loved the flavours found in Indian food. But when she eloped with her husband to Queensland in 1978, finding her dream samosa proved elusive.
The situation inspired Manju to create her own samosas using her childhood memory of family dinners in India.
