British influence on the Indian culinary manners

British ruled Indians for centuries and thus, their culture is bound to affect our taste and culinary ways. British influence on the Indian culinary manners, let’s talk about it –

In this colonial period, we were made to feel the buzz created by beverages as the Britishers introduced not just tea but whiskey to Bharat. Of course, India is a king of spices but we still own a lot of great cooking tips to England. It was under their influence, that we started using a combination of ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, and licorice. Pork became tastier as we learned to marinate it with spices and chilies.

We come across so many soup and salad varieties in a restaurant. Do you know they are not typical to us the Indians? They have a British origin rather. The last time you visited that high-end restaurant, use of fork and knife was obvious. But, we learned this art from the Europeans only.

Before their arrival, the food did not have that much liquid content. The concept of curry has been introduced by them. Rice served with a ‘subzi’ containing delicious curry is anytime welcomed. Isn’t it? The healthy cucumber sandwiches we used to have in our lunch during school days, the irresistible birthday cakes and pastries are a treasure that we still relish. Not just that, the structure and needs changed too. It’s difficult to imagine a kitchen without a slab. Or can you eat while sitting on the floor? None of them is a bad idea. But we have become naturally accustomed to the kitchen with slabs and dinner area with dining tables.

Sometimes, it becomes a little surprising that our lifestyle is affected by Britisher and Mughal way of living. Don’t you think so?
