Indian food has long been recognised as one of the UK’s favourite meals, either home-made, take away or at a restaurant. However, here are some facts that you may not be aware of:
1.The word “curry” is rarely used to describe a dish in India. The huge diversity of dishes are often known by their ingredients and/or locale
2.The twenty-eight different regions of India all have contrasting ways of cooking and use different ingredients. In the north of the country, for example, there is a tendency to produce less spicy dishes, incorporating red and green chillies and yoghurt. In the south fish dishes are more often seen and mustard is a common ingredient.
