Mumbai, November 17, 2016: Another session at Tata Literature Live! The Mumbai LitFest, on ‘Chasing the Curry – Desi Cooking on Foreign Shores’, saw culinary historian Colleen Taylor Sen and eminent journalist Vir Sanghvi in conversion with food and wine expert Antoine Lewis in the chair. While the session highlighted the origin of the word curry, it was difficult to tell where the actual root lies, British or Indian?
Colleen said that curry is the short form for a gravy dish, but what differentiates curries across regions is the particular spices used. Sanghvi said that an interesting development is the creation of new recipes by Indians who have migrated across the globe and adapted to new cuisines.
Indian cuisine is one of the most popular cuisines in the world. For example, in the UK and Trinidad, an Indian dish is counted as one of their national dishes. Indian cuisine is also very popular in Japan.
