Ever wonder why Indian food is just so...damn...good?Â
There's actually a very legitimate explanation for it.Â
There's a chance that your Indian friends are just better chefs than anyone else you know...but that's probably not why their native cuisine tastes so much better.
There's a MUCH more scientific reason than this, we promise!
It's because the flavor compounds don't overlap, molecularly, as often as the flavors used in other types of cuisine!
Flavor compounds of different foods have a lot to do with the sensation you get when eating them. Since Indian food uses so many distinct flavors that don't overlap, it's ultimately a larger variety of flavors you're tasting. In layman's terms...it's a BIGGER party in your mouth than is possible with other dishes! For more information on this, here's anÂ awesome chartÂ of the flavo
So next time you sit down for a delicious Indian meal, thank your lucky stars that all of those flavor compounds are so different from one another. It's what makes the meal so phenomenal!
