Brad Pitt and His Love for Indian Food

Brad Pitt loves Angelina Jolie from the bottom of his heart. But it is often said, there is no sincerer love other than the love for food. Let’s see what the heartthrob of millions, Brad Pitt actually loves to eat.  “He really misses their Indian takeaway nights from where they lived in Surrey, 2006. Angelina arranged a surprise for a load of it to be cooked and flash-freeze packed for her to fly home” says a source. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie visited India in the year 2006. They also enjoyed an auto ride in Mumbai. During his visit to India, he was really fascinated by Indian food.

Let’s have a look at what among the Indian cuisine, he still misses. Indian cuisine or South Asian cuisine is unique coz Indian food is different in different part of India itself. From Rajma-chawal in the North to Masala Dosa in the South, India is diverse as far as food is concerned. Yes, Brad Pitt is in love with North Indian curries. He loves lamb bhuna, chicken korma and chicken tikka plus beer. Curry and beer, perfect combination. Isn’t it? So what is so special about the Indian curries?

Lamb Bhuna (Roasted Lamb Curry) – Lamb Bhuna takes time to be cooked but the result is really worth it. It is a relishing curry, flavoured with home-roasted and ground spices that blend very well with succulent cubes of lamb. It is serve with steamed rice.

Chicken Korma (Creamy Chicken Curry) – Chicken korma consists of of boneless pieces of chicken. Chicken is cooked with almond sauce and Indian spices. The aroma of garlic, ginger and the homemade cream completely satisfy the taste buds. It is served with steamed rice, tandoori roti or naan. Tandoori roti (Indian bread) is made with up of wheat flour. It is traditionally cooked in clay oven. Naan is flat-bread.

  • Chicken Tikka (Skewers) – Quick and easy recipe, that is made up of marinated chunk of boneless chicken. It is grilled/roasted or barbecued and is ultimate Indian spicy comfort food. It serves as a great appetizer, and is very common in Indian weddings and parties. It goes very well with hard drinks, especially beer and variant mocktails. Punjabi’s love it. It is served with naan and mint chutney.

  • Chicken Tikka (Curry) – The creamy, red color chicken curry is so very appealing to the eyes. It is loaded with lemony garlicky zest plus thick cream from the healthy buffaloes of Punjab, he he! The grounded spices and creamy chicken is something our taste buds will always desire for. Ready-made curry-mix is also available in the shops, we just have to cook according to the package’s direction.
