Many of the most famous ingredients that go into typical ‘Indian' food aren't actually native to India


I'm good with that……still delicious!

Several years ago I saw a story where they offered people a chance to taste Chicken Madras, the most popular curry in the UK.

Most people looked at it slightly askance and asked "what is it?"

This tasting was done in Madras, of course.

A very early version of Fusion cuisine, perhaps ?

Pretty much.

Tikka masala is a European interpretation of Subcontinent food, as well.

Chop Suey anyone?

Depending upon the context, the Cantonese which was
Anglicized into 'chop suey' can be translated to mean
'fried everything,' basically whatever was handy
to cook and feed the barbarian diplomats.
