“Food for the Body is not enough. There should be Food for the soul”
While the body looks for nutrition in food, it is the flavors, aroma and texture which satiates the soul. Indian food is an experience. Right from the presentation, to the aromatic spices blended to perfection, it comes together in the form of a wholesome and satisfying meal.
Here are some of the lesser known facts about why Indian food is unvariably so delicious !
It is Designed to Tickle ALL your Taste Buds
The idea behind a complete Indian meal is to offer all the 5 different flavors- sweet, salty, bitter, sour, and spicy on one single plate. A proper meal should be a perfect balance of all of these.
Indian food has the Largest Share in Cooking Ingredients Worldwide.
Indian food uses a whopping 200 ingredients of the 381 cooking ingredients used all over the world! No wonder we can see an overwhelming diversity in dishes all over the country. We can bet that very few people have tried all dishes which have originated in India.
Indian Food is Scientifically Proven to be the Best Tasting off all Cuisines
According to a study led by IIT Delhi, a single Indian dish entails multiple unique flavors which don’t have much overlap with each other. Such a phenomenon is not found in western food, as the concept is to pair ingredients with similar compounds generating similar tastes. The diversity in the ingredients of Indian food makes it the best tasting food in the world 😉
The delicious All-in-1 meal at Box8, is the perfect embodiment of all the awesomeness of a typical north and central Indian meal.
