Why is there no pork in Indian food?
It’s sort of like you said – pigs aren’t raised as food through much of India. Possibly this has something to do with both the vegetarianism from Hinduism which makes meat eating uncommon, plus the cultural influence of Muslims, for whom pork is forbidden.
Why is there no pork in India?
India is a net importer of pork. Due to a significant share of vegetarians and Muslims in India, the demand for pork is usually limited to the hotel, restaurant, and institutional sectors (HRI). Most pork imports are in the form of processed meat. In 2018, India imported over 500 metric tons of this meat.
Why do Indian restaurants not serve pork?
There simply wouldn’t have been a supply of pigs or the habit of rearing them – and English breeds brought by the colonists wouldn’t do too well in the climate of much of India. Maintaining a supply of pork would have been hard.
Should you cover curry when cooking?
All foods give off some steam when cooking, so it’s important to leave the lid off the pan during frying so the steam evaporates rather than collecting on the lid and dripping back into the hot oil.
What to add to curry to make it taste better?
There are so many things you can do to improve this; in no particular order:
- Use chicken thighs instead of breasts for more flavour.
- Use ghee or butter to make the dish fuller in flavour.
- Use yogurt instead of heavy cream.
- Use lemon or lime juice.
- Add sugar.
- Add whole peppercorns while cooking.
- Garam masala.
How do you make curry flavorful?
Adding various amounts of sweetener, salt, or acid (vinegar, lemon/lime juice, etc.) is the easiest way to bring out the flavors already there. Remember that the key when seasoning is to bring out the flavors already there – your dish shouldn’t taste like salt, sugar, or acid.
