Did you know….
Chilli Chicken, Chowmein, Fried Rice with Manchurian, the list goes on… And as our mouth waters, we wonder: are these scrumptious creations Chinese or Indian? Truth be told, this newfangled cuisine coined as Indian Chinese actually exists. It’s true, it’s even featured on Wikipedia. But contrary to popular belief, it isn’t all that trendy. Desi Chinese actually dates back to a few hundred years ago created by the small Chinese community from the Hakka region that settled in Kolkata in the late 19th century. And before you knew it, this version of “Chinese” food had tickled the taste buds of people all over India adopting it in their own way, from Chinese Bhel Puri to Chinese Idli, spring rolls in canteens to momos on the streets.
So what really is Indian Chinese? Simply put, it is the Indian adaptation of Chinese cooking techniques and seasonings with a unique tadka. It’s aimed at pleasing our desi palate, with a larger offering of vegetarian dishes of course. Yes, Chinese food is the most popular foreign cuisine in India surpassing Italian or Thai. This is why a majority of restaurants dedicate a section of their menu to Chinese food. And this is not just the case in India. People across the world, especially in Malaysia, Singapore and North America, surprisingly relish this cuisine to no end (and who can blame them?).
