Food Project - Cuisine in India (Katrina Zondag)
This storyboard does not have a description.
Hey Dad! Can we have butter chicken tonight? And can you use the Indian spices?
Sure honey, but did you know that most spices are not actually native to India?
Wait, what do you mean? Everyone knows that India is the spice capital of the world with their hot hot spices!
Well, Indian cuisine has been influenced by other cultures through military expeditions and trade.
Every group that has made contact with the Indians, has influenced their culture, but there are two particular cultural groups that have really influenced the use of spices in India.
In 1526, when the Mughals from Central Asia expanded their empire into India, they introduced some of your favourite spices like cumin and turmeric and also introduced cooking techniques like marinating meat in yogurt.
When Vasco da Gama came to trade in India in 1497, Indians exchanged for spices that were brought to Europe from the Americas such as chili, a preferred spice now-a-days in India.
YIPPI! Thanks dad! You're the best!
I guess since we're almost home, I'll end the history lesson for today. Now, do your homework and wash-up while I make butter chicken.
