Indian food is loved all around the world. We have seen that the British people do love Indian food, especially the curries. British cuisine is usually very bland and not spicy whereas Indian dishes are quite the opposite to them. They are a lot of spices that are used in Indian dishes starting from cumin, cardamon, star anise, bay leaf, red chilies, and peppercorns. North Indian dishes are less spicy as they use less amount of green and red chilies, they add more ghee and curd to their dishes. In Southern India where rice is their staple food, you can see many rice dishes like Biryani prepared using only vegetables or meat or can be made with both. Rice is used to make dosas, idlis, and many more breakfast dishes. East Indian cuisine always uses the mustard paste when cooking most of their dishes. Fish is largely consumed in this part of the Country. Western Indian cuisine is a mix of everything, where you can enjoy all sorts of Indian dishes.
When the British left India they took with them some of the most popular dishes along with them. Now, in England Indan food is something that everyone loves to eat. We all know that Fish & Chips is the national dish of the United Kingdom and now Chicken Tikka masala has been recently added as a national dish of the United Kingdom. More than 200 years ago the first Indian curry shop was opened in London by an Indian migrant. Since 1809, Indian food was known in England, but still, it was not popular until the British rule over the Indian subcontinent that jolted the culinary interest. The forefront of this led to the creation of Anglo-Indian food with traditional Indian essence with a wave of the British touch. By 2013, there were more than 10,000 Indian restaurants in England and Wales.
Indian food in the United Kingdom needs to follow the exact same recipes. They can be modified or combined with the wish of the diners. You can add chicken or prawns or any meat to the base curry sauces. This way one can create Indian dishes that suit the British palettes.
