Recreating authentic Indian dishes while living overseas for NRIs
After jet setting across the world to a new country, there will be moments when you miss the warmth of home. One of the best ways to reconnect with our homeland is through food. The kitchen is so important to Indian life that a familiar meal can feel like a sanctuary, especially for the Non-Resident Indians (NRIs). The smells and tastes of home in a warm bowl transport you to the comforting memories of mum’s cooking.

To recreate authentic Indian dishes, you first need to buy the ingredients essential to Indian cuisine. Spices are the heartbeat of the Indian kitchen, with every family having their own secret blend to make signature dishes. Ingredients such as Kalpaasi (dagad phool / patar ka phool) and Kasoori methi (dried fenugreek leaves) are not common but essential in Indian cooking flavour to curries and masala. However, Kalpaasi and Kasoori methi are both seen as specialty ingredients throughout the rest of the world. Sourcing Indian spices when abroad can be a problem, there is potential to shop in speciality stores or online, but the products are usually more expensive and not of the same quality that you would find back home.
