Sweets

Many people complain that Indian food is spicy while they only have tried spicy food. iIf Indian sweets were famous Indian food would have been considered sweet. Well you don't actually need to eat spicy Indian food; use less spice it would be less spicy, instead of complaining. Most Indian food would still taste amazing even without much spices.

  • I don't like Indian food despite being Indian. Most of the time it has to be vegetarian dish which sucks.
    I love my food with fish, chicken, goat and pork (except for Cow meat). One more thing is Indian curry stinks for me. I prefer dry food but I love Indian sweets tho.

    • India have many non vegetarian dishes curry have many variety all of it don't stink

    • I do also prefer meat in the food. :)

  • I agree. I've had the honor, and pleasure, of trying every dish you've mentioned above.

    People, in general, like to reduce an entire cuisine to just a few dishes. This usually happens when such people are very ignorant about said cuisine.

    For example, to add to what you mentioned about Indian food, there are:
    - people who think Japanese food is just sushi rolls and miso soup
    - people who think Chinese food is what you get at Panda Express
    - people who think Korean food is just Barbecue and Bibimbap
    - people who think Italian food is just pasta and pizza.

    I could go on and on, but you get the gist.

    • Well that is said every cuisine is diverse they should explore it rather than steorytyping

    • I mean sad not said

    • I agree! Why limit yourself to one or two dishes when there are so much more dishes to try!

  • I absolutely love Indian cuisine. It's very diverse (as diverse as India and surrounding countries are). I hadn't had any in months.
    After reading this take, I'm definitely going to treat myself to some later this weekend.

    • Lol i could only put 20 i didn't even include jalebi

    • Milk+jalebi=☺️

  • Nope, it's all curry.

    The only thing they eat in America is cheeseburgers, the only thing they eat in Mexico is tacos, the only thing they eat in France is snails, the only thing they eat in Germany is frankfurters, the only thing they eat in Italy is pizza, and the only thing they eat in India is curry.

    • Mainstream indian food is less healtheir you should try to explore more

    • i ate butter chicken for the protein and veggies that came with the meal. Even if it's not perfectly healthy - its better than the other foods they sell at school.

    • But india have more healthy and tasty food you should really try to explore it believe me you won't regret

  • Its really ignorant to think an entire nation only has food based around 1 dish just because we aren't exposed to much else. I dont get people sometimes.
    Those all look delicious though!
