Indian Foods That Are Not Originally Indian

When anyone thinks about visiting India they think about food. Indians are known as foodies because India is a country that offers a number of lip-smacking dishes. Not just Indians but people from around the world admire the Indian cuisine and also, the delicious street food that India offers.

Indian street food tradition has a history associated with it, so do the popular dishes that are found in the country. But not many people know that Indian favourite delicacies that attract a lot of visitors are not actually Indian.

In this post, we are going to reveal some most popular Indian delicacies that are not Indian, indeed.

1. Tea/chai

Every Indian starts his day with a hot cup of “chai”, but did you know it is one thing that is so not Indian? Yes, your favourite “chai” is originally from China it was grown in India during British rule.

2. Samosa

This one is the best snack partner of Chai. And to our surprise, even this lip-smacking snack isn’t originally from India. It originates from the Middle East.

3. Chicken Tikka

Now here comes a shocker. In 2001 UK’s minister claimed it to be “a true British National Dish” because of its utmost popularity in the UK. It actually originates from Scotland.

4. Rajma

I ended up so hurt when I found out that Rajma was brought from Mexico. But we still call it our dish because we made it an epic combination of “Rajama –Chawal”.

5. Naan

So a lot of Punjabis can be disappointed or disagree that Naan is not their invention but Persians’.

6. Jalebi

It might break your heart, but even Jalebi has a foreign origin. It is actually formed of Persian origin.

7. Falooda

This yummy cool desert, that no Indian can resist, is not Indian. It too traces its origin from Persia. We really owe Persians a big time!

8. Biryani

Its name only makes our mouth salivate. Well, it’s time to bow down to the Persians for it is believed even Biryani finds its origin in Persia. We are so glad that it happened.

I have touched many lives in the last two years after I decided to become a freelance writer. Sharing a story is sharing a part of life and making your life bigger. Thus I became a writer and have become a better person as I also get parts of others lives and we all grow together as a community, through the enticing writings.

Foods Avoid Consuming After Workout

If you are a fitness freak, then you must be following a healthy diet and a great workout. Apart from this, you must also be knowing that what you need to take and what you need to avoid post and pre-workout. You might be given too much of Gyan by your personal trainers and nutritionist. Right no? Now, you know what exactly happens to your body when you do a workout. You deplete your body of energy by doing exercise or a heavy workout.

Below-given are some of the types of food that are generally recommended not to eat after doing a workout

1. Spicy foods

Spicy foods

You are not advised to consume any food which is spicy like hot sauces, or anything with salsa or sriracha. This is because they are hard to digest as after doing a workout your body is in the state of repair. Your body needs something which is easy to digest.

2. Fatty foods

Fatty foods

Fatty and processed foods are love and you know that. Fatty foods like oils, seeds, anything fried like fritters, French fries or something else and even nuts are not allowed to consume after your workout. It is because fatty foods slow out your digestion process and make your stomach feel upset.

3. Chocolates

Chocolates

Don’t tell me that, please. Are we saying that you can’t have chocolates after your workout? Yes, exactly. I mean you can have but at least not immediately after your workout.

4. Energy Bars

Energy Bars

What you can’t even have energy bars after your workout? Is that even true? Yes, absolutely. They look like giving you energy, but in reality, they are not. Energy bars nowadays contain lots of sugar and nor more-nutritionally sound. This is why you can’t have them after your workout.

5. High Fibre Foods

High Fibre Foods

Also, try to avoid high fibre foods like flax seeds or salads. This is because having them will cause cramping and bloating in your stomach leaving you uncomfortable.

6. Sugary drinks

Sugary drinks

Sugary drinks like juices, fruit punches should be avoided because they contain high levels of fructose and it makes your digestion slow. Apart from this, it also reduces the fat-burning effects of a high-intensity workout.

7. Alcohol

Alcohol

You know your buddies well and how do they try to spin you on weekends to booze along? But you should not do that as drinking alcohol after your workout will dehydrate your body and also reduces protein synthesis in your body which empties calories from your body.

8. Fried eggs

Fried eggs

Eggs are one of the wonderful ways to get protein after your workout, they are fine if you eat them raw or hard-boiled. You should not have eggs with sunny-side up.

So, these were the few things that you should not consume right after your workout if you do not want to put your efforts in vain.
