At present, India is known for two major things where one is India’s prowess in the IT/Programming sector. The other one is the movies industry where there are several songs added to almost every single one of them for the entertainment of public.
However, IT and movies are not the sector that India is known for, the food sector is also there. The country is known for making and serve people with some very spicy as well as tasty food. There are currently many people from around the world who want to try different foods and cuisines currently being prepared in the country.
Ido Fishman and India
If you also wish to visit India someday, then you must try the following dishes that I am going to share some details about. The information that I am sharing around Indian cuisine comes from a world-renowned chef who has travelled the entire world in order to try foods from different countries. The name of the chef is Ido Fishman Chef who had the opportunity to visit India and try out different dishes from the country.
Therefore, Ido Fishman tried as many Indian dishes that he could in order to taste them and assess which one was the tastiest. However, the task was not as easy as he had considered it to be in the first place, so he listed the top dishes he found were the tastier ones:
According to Ido Fishman, there was not a single non-vegetarian restaurant in India that that did not have the Murgh Makhni (Butter Chicken) in their menu. It is one of the most loved and delicious dishes that almost every Indian chef and cook knows how to prepare with taste and aroma. Most of the times, the restaurants tend to serve Murgh Makhani with black lentils, a green salad, and naan.
The next dish in line is the Tandoori Chicken, which you would find in the Indian restaurant menus mentioned as Indian barbecue chicken. If you go to an old restaurant in Indian, then you will see the chefs there preparing Tandoori Chicken by putting it into the clay oven, which is a traditional way of preparing Tandoori Chicken.
Tandoori Chicken can also be prepared on a regular grill or a regular oven after marinating the chicken with yogurt.
Chicken Tikka Masala
According to Ido Fishman, Chicken Tikka Masala is somewhat similar to Murgh Makhani (Butter Chicken) but in Chicken Tikka Masala, the chicken is grilled and it is dipped into the gravy that is creamy making it very thick. The dish is extremely tasty to try out with rice and the real deal in the dish is the gravy that the chicken is dipped into.
When preparing the gravy, the Chefs sauce made up of tomato paste and yogurt is spiced with chili, garam masala, ginger, and garlic. As for the chicken, it is grilled after being marinated overnight and then it is cooked in the gravy that is already slightly smoked. Once prepard, it is up to you whether you would like to have it with rice or with naan bread.
By now you must be thinking where is the vegetarian food that the Indians eat so much? Well, Malai Kofta is also in the menu, which is indeed a vegetarian dish. This dish is actually an alternative to the very famous dish known as meatballs. In India, majority of the non-veg. restaurants serve Malai Kofta that are made of meat but the vegetarian restaurants serve Malai Kofta that are made of vegetables.
In the vegetarian version of Malai Kofta, the ingredients used are sweet corn, peas, beans, potatoes, and carrots. All the ingredients are first cooked only to be mashed and then the magic of paneer, and spices takes place. Once again, you can have the Malai Kofta with Naan bread or you can also have them with rice.
