Indian Food tastes good because there is little flavor overlap in the ingredients

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

An article in the Washington posts explains the appeal of Indian food.

Executive summary: Western food tends to layer and blend similar flavors. Many Indian dishes have very little or no flavor overlap. The dishes with greater overlap were the starchier dishes with rice, breads and so on.

The executive summary is a good idea. I skimmed that article until my eyes glazed over and that was my main take-away. Interesting but, good heavens, the researchers and the writer certainly took the long way around to make that point.
