Indian food, like the culture of the country, is lively and has different foods and flavors from different states. Although the tastes and ingredients may vary from region to region, one thing that unites all for the formation of Indian cuisine is the high spice and flavor quotient. And this lively feature of Indian food has put its cuisine on the world map. Proof is that all those videos of foreign people trying local food and liking them are online.
Recently, a young Australian girl ate an Indian dish of Kadhai chicken with rice and mango ice cream for dessert. We even saw a Vietnamese food blogger try to associate Idli, Vada and Sambhar with the South Indian main combo chutney. She found it “buttery and delicious.” And the last one to hop on a bandwagon was an elderly Japanese woman who went for a North Indian spread.
