People who like Indian food

I've had some this year and I do like it. I've had butter chicken, rogan josh and vindaloo. My favorite Indian curry is rogan josh, especially if the lamb is tender.

If you're British (like myself), you're guaranteed to have had an Indian at some point. My favourite is a Lamb Bhuna.

Also, the Chicken Tikka Masala is rumoured to have been developed somewhere in the UK, some say Glasgow, some say Birmingham.
Birmingham is the supposed origin.

I love me an Indian. Usually I swing between Madras, Vindaloo and the oft unheard of Phal. O,..,O What!? I LIKE ARSEBURNER CURRIES OK!!!!

"Another explanation is that it originated in a restaurant in Glasgow, Scotland. This version recounts how a British Pakistani chef, Ali Ahmed Aslam, proprietor of the Shish Mahal restaurant in Glasgow, invented chicken tikka masala by improvising a sauce made from yogurt, cream, and spices."

Still debated. But there's also the strange thing that in the UK you can get full on proper indian foods, and then there's the takeaway shops that do them too. They will kill your stomach, but not your wallet.
Myesh. Indian is everywhere in the UK. As for the debate. Welp. Hard to say. I was brought up knowing it as Birmingham since they used to have the Curry mile. Dunno if it still exists anymore. But all those takeaways <3332

I used to live in a city that had a heavy northern Indian population. Sikhs, in particular. I myself used to live with a Fijian friend that was Hindu, so I got to experience a lot of that cuisine.

Butter chicken, dosa, saag paneer, (I love paneer) jerk/curry goat/lamb/chicken, daal, (paste made primarily from chick peas) delicious homemade naan, biryani, aloo gobi, (potatoes & cauliflower) samosas. Ghee, turmeric, and cardamom are frequently used, alongside curry, obviously.

Gulab jamun is a very tasty dessert. Pretty much an Indian donut. They are made using milk, and are ball shaped. Drizzled with syrup and saffron, and mmm. And who can forget jalebi? They are warm and sweet orange coloured candy sticks, pretty much.

Indian cuisine changes depending on the region you're in. There's so much of it.

There's one professor at my college from India, and I shit you not. He looks like Gandhi from Civ6. My brother and I call him "Professor Gandhi". This man can do some really good math, but it's hard to understand what he's trying to say. I dropped out of his class, so did my brother, but man this guy knows his Algebra.

Considering I have to drive for half an hour across county lines, I've yet to see a restaurant with Gulab jamun. Usually, my place is near a bubble tea place that's a short walk from the place I like...

You should, definitely.

I mean, no problem, but what does any of that have to do with err, Indian cuisine?

@Zerzehn Well, I got gulab jamun at a wedding, and then again at a party we threw for another friend of mine. I've had it home made once or twice, too. Each time was a massive treat.

Eh good news is, if my plans for next year work out, the new city I will be moving to on the coast will have a few places that I would like to try... even Nepalese. (which still serves Indian stuff.)

It's been my favorite cuisine since I discovered it uwu
Channa Masala, stuffed naan (especially Peshawari naan), and cashew vegetable korma are some of my favorites.

That's what I'm wondering. Clearly there's people over here from India, but yet there's no Indian food shops that I know of. There's Chinese, but no Indian.

Could be several reasons. Do you live in an area with a noticeable Indian population?

Not really, but I do find them more around the cities. They are there though, not to be stereotypical but a lot of them own stores around where I live. So they have to have some culinary supplies of their cuisine around here.

Peshawari naan is the sex.
Bit of a tie over to unpopular opinions. But I believe there is such a thing as 'too spicy '. Being almost unable to eat your food shouldn't be a badge of honour. Hence why I like Bhuna: nice and spicy without burning your mouth off.

Also; Jalfrezi if I'm cooking it myself at home for simplicity.
Eh, I just like super spicy stuff. I do also eat a fair amount of mild things too.

Boyfriend and I used to eat the lunch buffet at a local Indian restaurant semi-regularly before the pandemic. He loves him some spicy Indian and I... really like the flavors, but not the heat. Like, I have super low tolerance for spicy food. The butter chicken at that restaurant is brilliant, and I have a recipe for crockpot korma that I adapt for my low spice tolerance by replacing the hot peppers with green bell peppers. I know there’s some other dishes at that restaurant that I adore, too, but it’s been so long I can’t recall what they were. XD
One thing with diced potatoes in a sauce is quite nice.

I’ve actually made vaguely Indian-inspired food twice in the last week - the other day I set some quorn to marinate with a bunch of turmeric, curry, cumin, and other things, and had boyfriend put it in a mac n cheese bake. (If you’ve never tried it, Indian leftovers go great with mac n cheese!) Tonight I simmered quorn and diced potatoes in a butter/cornstarch/almond flour/coconut milk roux with a pile of turmeric, some curry, and some paprika. Add a dash of white wine, a big dollop of quarg, and some peanuts. Probably about as unauthentic as you can get, but it did scratch my itch for butter chicken, so mission accomplished.
