The roots of Indian food in all its diversity may lie in traditions that trace back to centuries. It's taken a decade or two for a new language to emerge. Indian food has been reinvented, revamped and hustled into the 21st century. The movement owes much to many culinary Indian giants who were the firsts to experiment with different techniques, flavours, influences and much more. They paved way for an ever growing gastronomic movement that we know today. If there was one obstacle with Modern Indian food's first wave, it was that it stayed largely confined to fine dining spaces. And now, whether through imitation and flattery, whether through inspiration, Indian food in its new avatar is now targeting specifically a wider audience.
