Indian Food - Myth or Fact
Do you like Indian food? I do! Although must admit, had to acquire a taste for it. My first time trying a so-called authentic Indian dish was at one of those American mall-type food courts, where there are all kinds of restaurants for you to choose from. That probably wasn't the best place for me to get my first taste. Was taken aback by some of sort of flavor or spice that my palette was clearly not expecting. It threw me off!
Later on, when cookingchannels became so popular on television, started learning how to prepare Indian dishes. There was the one lady who referred to herself as a “ spice goddess ”. Because really it comes to cooking, Indians do know their spices. No argument. Her recipes always seemed so simple, easy to prepare, and she explained the herbs and spices she used for flavoring and showed you how to incorporate them into the recipes. Crush these seeds. Warm this spice in the pan. Sprinkle these herbs. Decided to try Indian food again and was very pleased with the tasting tests.
