Over the past two decades, Indians have developed a distinct taste for Italian food. It turns out to be the second most sought out international food amongst Indians according to a recent survey. This can also be attributed to Indians becoming more and more exposed to international trends in food, thanks to the television channels, social media and avid food bloggers.With the increased demand, nowadays many Indian restaurants are forced to add a section for Italian food on their menu cards.
What makes Italian food liked by many Indians? Initially, the spice level in the Italian cuisine was not something that matched the tasteof Indian consumers. So, the chefs came up with special customizations and added more spices to the sauce that could appeal to the taste buds of Indians. Apart from taste, a typical Indian consumer looks for value for money, variety, freshness and health. The increasing food delivery options and dine-outs that serve Italian food have made sure that these factors are well taken care of.
When you order pizza online, usually the service provider promises usage of fresh ingredients and also gives competitive offers and cash backs. They also introduce unique variations of Italian dishes and make them available on each day the week. Some of the food delivery services and restaurants in India even go to the extent of making the dough fresh everyday with high quality flour. They use hand-crushed Italian tomatoes instead of tomato pastes and also use 100 per cent dairy mozzarella cheese with no synthetics and blends. These factors ensure great quality in taste, cheesiness and freshness.
One more remarkable thing about Italian food is that it is colorful and nutritious. It usually has a good combination of staples, vegetables and herbs that are essential for a balanced diet..
Pizzas in particular have become a favorite for any occasion among all age groups because of the affordability. Even the roadside sandwich stalls have started selling low priced Indian versions of pizzas made in sandwich toasters. At many places, pizzas have also started replacing the samosas that usually gets distributed in parties.
Just like Indians welcomed biryani centuries ago, which was actually a derivative of the Persian pilaf, and made it their own, now they have come to an extent of making pizzas their own too.
With Italian food taking care of all the aspects that an Indian looks for while making an order, it seems to be on the top of their favorites list!
