Know your food
Ever wondered which part of India a particular delicacy is from? Here are some familiar Indian dishes and the areas where they act as staples for the locals:
Biryani: A mixed rice dish made of spices, rice and meat such as chicken or mutton – different parts of India including Delhi and Chettinad serve different variations of this aromatic delicacy, but you can be assured they all share the same great taste!
Curry: Depending on the geographic region, this heavily spiced dish differs in terms of its ingredients, spices and cooking methods, resulting in a wide array of distinctive curries. Hence, curries from regions such as Northern India and Southern India are all uniquely different but equally delicious.
Naan: A leavened flatbread baked in an oven, this bread usually acts as an accompaniment to other Indian dishes in regions such as Delhi and Punjab in North India. It can be served plain, stuffed, or as a wrap, making this humble dish extremely versatile.
Tandoori Chicken: Originating from the Punjab region, this dish is traditionally prepared by marinating chicken in yoghurt and spices and roasting it in a tandoor, or a cylindrical clay oven. Not only is it used as a base for various cream-based curries such as butter chicken, but it has also led to the creation of other familiar dishes such as chicken tikka.
