Indian Fusion Trends for the Modern Indian Bride
One of the hottest new trends now is fusion food. While there are many regional cuisines which lend themselves well to the fusion movement, none do as well as Indian cuisine. Indian fusion cuisine manages to absorb and assimilate a huge number of influences and still maintain its unique flavor. Indian fusion food is especially popular for events, so you may want to consider Indian fusion options for a wedding catering.
The key to making Indian fusion food is keeping the flavors of India intact and complemented through different foods. Traditional Indian foods use a variety of spices, like turmeric and cumin, using them to liberally season foods. A fusion take on these food trends maintains a strong use of spices. You can expect to see your favorite Indian flavors infused in nontraditional food choices.
Pairing of traditional and non-traditional flavors is the key to understanding fusion cuisine; for example, IndAroma’s unique Tandoori Shrimp with Mango Salsa! You may also see Indian fusion cuisine chefs maintain many of their signature cooking styles. For instance, in authentic Indian cuisine spices are typically toasted in a hot pan to enhance their flavor before using in a dish. Food is also usually cooked in hot oil, then butter is added for flavor at the end. You can expect to see some of the same cooking methods used in Indian fusion foods. However, don’t expect chefs to follow all the recipes when creating a unique twist. They may borrow cooking techniques from other cultures to create dishes that are unique and yet familiar at the same time. A prime example of this is Indo-Chinese cuisine. Some of the most popular items are Gobhi Manchurian, Chili Chicken, and Hakka Noodles.
You may see your tandoori chicken prepared in a way that’s not quite what you remember, for example the Tandoori Jerk Chicken, something we created for an adventurous couple. Samosas are also a huge trend in Indian fusion food with a variety of fillings and spices used to flavor them. Of course, naan is a staple in traditional dishes but this tasty bread can also go from a simple side to a crust for a pizza — or take on any number of other roles in a dish!
Now that we’ve described what Indian fusion food is, you should probably know what it isn’t: it isn’t boring and it’s certainly not what you would expect! This is one of the main reasons why it is a great option for a wedding catering menu, and why IndAroma is the smart choice for your wedding caterer!
