Whether it is the satisfying breads or the hearty curries, the tantalising street food or the sinful desserts - there's so much that Indian food has to offer.

The Palak Paneer recipe has received much appreciation, garnering over 16.5 million views and 1.6 million likes. In the clip, the chef asks his wife what she would like to have for dinner.
