A South East Londoner’s Guide to Curry

south east Londoners curry

Sometimes I wonder, would things be different if I was not born in the current cosmopolitan culture of UK, would I be able to mingle with diverse cultural aspects as easily as I can right now? Especially the various different cuisines from different cultures, as I love delightful foods of a different kind. The thought of the absence of such cosmopolitan practice in our culture baffles me, and I feel really lucky that this is not the case. Our inclusive cuisine culture of UK has embraced the culinary arts of different cultures. But among all of the cuisines we get to taste, the Indian Sub-Continental Cuisine is most popular. Surely some of the influence do sprout from the fact that Indian Sub-Continent was once a part of the British Empire and therefore some such evident cultural exchange like this was obvious. But I believe that is not the key reason for the popularity of Indian Cuisines in our culture because there were more different regions with different cultures included as a part of British Empire. And all of them have rich culinary cultures so far, but Indian Cuisine is most popular among us. I have been wondering what might be the reason behind it, for I am very much into curry dishes as well. I must confess, I took the help of Google. I really looked up for reasons behind the popularity of Indian dishes in the food culture of United Kingdom. Obviously, the responses regarding British Rule was the most popular answer, but I also found another explanation I did not think about before. Alike most of the Indian Sub-Continental dishes, the cuisines of UK are mostly stew based. Hence, in a way the tasteful Indian dishes are a distant relative of our traditional dishes, a very nice-smelling and spiced up the relative. And the explanation sounded quite plausible to me, I am not sure if that is right or wrong, but that surely is interesting.

I have found some really great Indian Cuisine takeaways and restaurants in Lee and Kent. I will love to share the information with you.
