Exactly What Makes Indian Food So Incredible
Most cuisines around the world rely on overlapping flavors. That is, they use ingredients which have similar chemical compounds leading to a synergy of flavors. While these ingredients can often appear as opposites (such as goat cheese and strawberries or peanut butter and curry), scientists have figured out that they actually share chemical compounds which make them pair well together. Most top chefs also agree on this widely accepted logic for dish creation.
Indian food, however, throws this reasoning out the window, which is precisely what gives its famous curries their unique, complicated flavors. In a recent study, researchers found over 200 different ingredients used in Indian dishes out of the 381 recorded all over the world! Instead of pairing foods similar in nature, Indian food tends to add ingredients based on their ability to bring a unique, separate flavor to the dish rather than blend in. This is exactly what makes Indian food so delicious and, dare we say, addicting.
