We Indians are really very lucky! We’ve got many different cultures. And of course with different cultures come many different mouth watering dishes. We all have different tastes. The dishes that are not of our type, we make them ours by adding our own local flavours and give it apni waali yumminessss! We are so much attached with our food! For Indian wives it’s like the strongest weapon. ‘Dill ka Rasta peth se ho kar jata hai…’ is an age-old adage commonly heard in typical hindi movies and daily soaps! And yes, its cent percent true!!!
Here is a list of some common videshi dishes…which we tend to accept with our desi wala twist!!
Originally, noodles are a Chinese dish. But when we go out on the streets we ought to find a Chinese food stall! When I saw the original recipe of noodles I was shocked! It was just like eating boiled noodles with a pinch of salt!!! Then we managed to make Chinese noodles the Indian way with fried veggies and of course, the sizzling chilli sauce!
- MASALA OATS
OATS!!! A must eat thing for all those who are on a diet! But in this seedhi saadhi dish also we manage to add our own color!!!! Yummm…yummm…yummmm!!! Oats with spicy chatpata and lazeez masala!! Makes your diet delicious! It’s time for people to leave the boring tasteless healthy low calorie food and add some masala to our life *ting tong*!
- FRIED MOMOS
Without oily food our life is really incomplete! Boiled momos…naaaaah! Doesn’t go well with the Indian palate. Fry it folks! Now they be like…OMG! This dish is heaven!
- BIRIZZA – BIRYANI WITH PIZZA
I would really like to appreciate the mix and match of Indians. We are so innovative! I really don’t understand from where these ideas get into the minds of these chefs. I mean seriously! PIZZA and BIRYANI?? Hyderabadi and Italian cuisine altogether! See this is the way we bind the world! Hats-off to Indian jugaad! What a combination! And trust me people this is finger licking awesome!!
Even the world class food chains understand the sentiments of the Indians when it comes to good food! Yeah, you got it right! Its Mac Donalds’ Aloo Tikki Burger! Its Sasta Sundar and Yummy! I guess every indian who has visited McD must have tried this! Specially the ones who live in hostel and are fed up with that ‘boring mess kaa khana’ and want to have something that can satisfy their hunger but doesn’t cost more.
- FRENCH TOAST
Reminds me of a scene in the movie ‘Queen’…where Rani cooks breakfast and they ask her, ‘Whats this?’ and she replies ‘Yeh French Toast hai…keval dilli mein milta hai!’
Yeah! That’s true. Delhi people will understand me better! The toothsome French Toast which may be sweet or spicy depending upon your taste!
I know that there is a huge list of desi videsi platter of dishes but these were the common ones!! I know after reading this you will have some mouth watering dish today!
So people…STAY FOODIE AND STAY HAPPY!!!!!
