#WorldOnMyPlate: 9 Dishes That Have Made Their Way to India

9 Apr , 2016  

Do you remember when trends were restricted to just fashion? But now, almost every few months, just like with fashion, there are ‘it foods’ that seem to catch our fancy! Do ‘cronuts’ ring a bell? The croissant-donut hybrid that caught out fancy a couple of years ago? And ever since then, local foods from different corners of the world, have become as much a part of our lives as Chicken Tikka Masala is our most popular export to the UK!

Here’s a list of what’s making us tick these days:

Baos
It’s true, baos are having a major moment in our lives. These soft, fluffy buns come with a range of fillings — from pork belly to awesome mock meat and vegetarian options.

Where – Order in from The Bao Haus Co. or drop in at The Fatty Bao for some of the best baos in Mumbai.

Arepa
An everyday food from Venezuela, this is a sort of dough made of maize flour that can be adapted with a number of toppings or even slit to make a sandwich. It’s naturally gluten free and nope, we won’t judge you for stuffing some cheese in there!

Sushi Burger
Brace yourselves, the Sushi burger is the new ‘cute’ little food that you’ve been seeing on the quick videos that playout in your ‘news feed’.  The ‘buns’ are made with Sushi rice and stuffed with salmon and wasabi aioli.

Tuna Sashimi
5 years ago, if you’d told anyone that Indians would be lapping up ‘raw’ tuna, nobody would have believed you! But here we are, eating up our tuna with fresh dill and crusted with coriander seeds.

Ceviche
Fresh meats that are cured with citrus juices and seasoned with herbs – this is usually a South American technique, but is now used across the world.  As with Sashimi, the meats have to be extremely fresh. Such is the case with this Orange Ceviche with scallops, prawns and baby snapper.

Bagel
The dense, chewy bread synonymous with New Yorkers is now a popular choice for us too. We love ours with a generous amount of cream cheese, but don’t let that stop you from experimenting with grilled chicken, veggies… the works!

Bunny Chow
What if you could eat your curry and the bowl too? That’s exactly what Bunny Chow is – a curry filled in scooped-out loaf of bread. It was popular amongst Indians in South Africa and is making its way to India!

Nachos
Tortilla chips topped with guacamole, cheese sauce and sour cream. Texture and flavours aplenty in this Mexican favourite!

Hand Pulled Rogan Josh, Daikon (Japanese radish) & Mint Buns
We love our Rogan Josh as much as the Vietnamese love their pulled pork! This is an Indian spin on the classic Franco-Vietnamese Banh Mi. Can’t wait for Mumbai folks to try it!

Where: Farzi Café, Delhi
