Curry Of Duck & Bhatura Bites: Here Are 15 Of The Most Exquisitely Reimagined Indian Dishes

India has been making its presence felt over the past decade more than ever across the gastronomical map. Initially gaining momentum with its trademark chicken tikka masalas, tandoori chicken and biryanis, we, at Homegrown, were delighted to note that the growing interest has started moving past just these signature dishes. Goan food like chicken vindaloo, Gujarati munchies, Rajasthani fare and even Parsi food have carved a niche for themselves all over the world and Indian food is, thankfully, no longer a reflexive association abroad with running to the bathroom a day later. Surveys conducted by Food Network UK reflect that the chicken tikka masala has made itself comfortable in Britain’s staple food, with the dish even being declared the UK’s national dish.
As the world falls voluntary prey to our flavours and spices, we got thinking about how creative chefs have attempted to draw out even more from the Indian cuisine experience. Some of these are such simple reinventions of traditional Indian dishes that we wouldn’t blink an eye if we passed them at a street food stall, like a Schezwan dosa. But some are pretty spectacular culinary feats. Here’s a look at some of the most creative reinventions of Indian food:

Investment banker turned chef, New York-based
is the ridiculously creative chef behind this delectable, street-inspired starter. And while it might be her artistic flair for presentation that’s gotten her recipes noticed by everything from The Huffington Post Taste to Food52, we couldn’t help but drool at her ability to innovate with traditional indian recipes to create tapas out of them.
