It is no secret that we Indians love food! Food, for us, is a celebration of our existence. From the rich and robust curries to the list of tantalising spicy and savoury snacks, India boasts of many gastronomic gems which are downright irresistible! From chaat to biryani to dimer Kalia to Undhiyu, the flavours spread over the 28 states and 8 union territories are extraordinary, to say the least. Although we are open to trying new flavours and cuisines, we find ourselves coming back to the classic Indian delicacies each time we want to indulge to our heart’s content. In fact, many of us Indians won’t give up on Indian delicacies even when we are in foreign countries.
