Eating and exploring in India
My entire family loves Indian food but I rarely make it. We visited Kerala, a beautiful state located along the Southern coast of India, and we’ve been hooked on Indian food ever since. I took a few Indian cooking classes, but I found most dishes too complicated and time consuming to make at home. Plus, there are so many excellent restaurants in Singapore where I can eat delicious and authentic Indian cuisine. Why not pick up the phone and order my favorites rather than spend all day in the kitchen?
Indian food is underappreciated in USA
While the UK has adopted Indian curry as their “national dish,” the USA has a long way to go in its appreciation of Indian food. A professor at New York University claims that since quality Indian food is incredibly labor intensive to make, it costs more than Americans are willing to pay. Apparently, there are about 8 times more Chinese restaurants than Indian restaurants in the USA, so we need to help change that!
There is only one Indian dish that I make at home and I’m excited to share it, because it’s super easy and my kids love it (double bonus). Maybe this will be a gateway for Americans to begin to gain an appreciation for Indian food! Are you one of the lucky foodies who has already fallen in love with Indian cuisine? This is a Chicken Tikka Masala that you can make at home in about a half an hour.
