This Indian staple drink had its roots in China, before the British came and taught us to cultivate this omnipresent beverage of the nation!

This triangle of heaven filled the bellies of people in the Middle East, before reaching India between the 13th and 14th centuries.

The epitome of softness. This leavened bread is a core food item of the Persian cuisine with its roots stuck deeply in Iran. It takes guts to refuse a naan with Butter Chicken, if you relate to food like I do!

4. Gulaab Jamuns

7. Jalebi
