She is recognized for bringing Indian cuisine to the western hemisphere with her debut cookbook, ''An Invitation to Indian Cooking'' (1973), which was inducted into the James Beard Foundation’s Cookbook Hall of Fame in 2006. She has written over a dozen cookbooks and appeared on several related television programmes, the most notable of which was ''Madhur Jaffrey's Indian Cookery'', which premiered in the UK in 1982. She was the food consultant at the now-closed ''Dawat'', which was considered by many food critics to be among the best Indian restaurants in New York City.

She was instrumental in bringing together filmmakers James Ivory and Ismail Merchant, and acted in several of their films, such as ''Shakespeare Wallah'' (1965), for which she won the Silver Bear for Best Actress award at the 15th Berlin International Film Festival. She has appeared in dramas on radio, stage and television.

In 2004, she was named an honorary Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in recognition of her services to cultural relations between the United Kingdom, India and the United States, through her achievements in film, television and cookery. In 2022, she was awarded the Padma Bhushan from the Government of India, which is the third highest civilian award.

Her childhood memoir of India during the final years of the British Raj, ''Climbing the Mango Trees'', was published in 2006. Provided by Wikipedia
