India is famous for spices as well as for food. Indians can’t survive on bread-butter. Every Indian wants delicious food each day. Many popular chefs in world are from Indian origin. Below are few Indian dishes which are famous world-wide:
Biryani is a mixed rice dish with its origins among the Muslims of Indian subcontinent. It can be compared to mixing a curry, later combining it with semi-cooked rice separately. This dish is especially popular throughout the Indian subcontinent, as well as among its diaspora. It is also prepared in other regions such as Iraqi Kurdistan. It is made with Indian spices, meat, and rice and sometimes, with eggs and potatoes in certain regional varieties.
This is a pretty basic Chole dish but brings a lot of flavor to the dinner table. Chickpeas are simmered for just 10 minutes in homemade gravy brimming with quintessential spices. Smashing some of the chickpeas creates a nice, thick consistency, perfect for scooping up with pooris/bhatooras (fried Indian bread).
Kali Dal (Dal Makhni)
The non-vegetarians across the country can’t thank the inventor of the Butter Chicken enough, for bestowing upon mankind the ever-so creamy and sumptuous delight. The vegetarians on the other hand, echo similar sentiments about Dal Makhni. Now for those who are a fan of both the delicacies, we’ll make the job easier for you. Did you know that both the dishes were the brainchild of a single man; none other than Kundan Lal Gujral, the founder of the Moti Mahal chain.
The smoothest dish in non-veg is Butter Chicken; the dish was developed in 1947 by the founders of the Moti Mahal restaurant in Delhi, India. The dish was made “by chance” by mixing leftover chicken in tomato gravy, rich in butter and cream. In 1974, a recipe was published for “Murgh Makhani (Tandoori chicken cooked in butter and tomato sauce)”. This sultry poultry dish tastes great with kali dal (black lentils), Nan, and a green salad.
Tandoori chicken has become an incredibly popular item on the menus of almost all Indian restaurants, and it is easy to understand the reason behind it. The tempting aroma of the roasted chicken marinated in yogurt with light spicy flavor, give the meat its beautiful red color. The history of tandoori chicken dates back to the Harappa Civilization. Sounds awkward? But, yes, the tandoori chicken dish was prepared in the Harappa civilization, which dates back to almost 3000 years ago during 2600-2500 BCE.
