The Chinese have visited India for ages to tour their Buddhist pilgrimage sites and gain a better understanding of the Buddhist teachings. But it wasn’t until they settled in Calcutta, now Kolkata, in India, that the true melting of cultures took place. Quick to realize that Indians love spicy food, the Chinese, using the same vegetables and meat, took the masala that gave Indian cuisine it’s unique flavor and added their own flavors – soy sauce, corn starch for coating and thickening, Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) and generous amounts of ginger, garlic and chilli. And, voila, a new cuisine was born – Indo-Chinese! The mouth-watering robust, spicy flavor of Indo-Chinese cuisine has made its way into the mouths and hearts of many all over the world and is here to stay. We, at Underground Indian Cuisine, are proud and excited to be the first to offer authentic Indo-Chinese cuisine in the Dallas area.
