Naan And Butter Chicken Is Being Sold As Tacos, And I CAN'T EVEN
Along with a lot of cabbage as garnish. Seriously, cabbage.
The first time, I didn't think much of it. I was happy even, for my Indian roots and how people were promoting it.
The second time around, I questioned the convenience of eating chewy, doughy naan and kulcha as a taco, with messy gravy getting everywhere. But that again was not my problem.
The third time around, the unholy amounts of cabbage (and lettuce?) irked me. Where were the swirling butter and cream?
No, this isn't even fusion, it is a folded up naan with curry in it masquerading as a taco.
Quite predictably, a lot of Indian and Middle-Eastern folks are calling it out.
Some were willing to try it.
Some had suggestions.
Some comments were purely inflammatory.
Some decided to make jokes out of it.
While, some just went off-track.
Here's what I know — Indian food already has a good foothold in the USA.
Here's what I also know — turning naan and curry into taco form shall not diminish its spiciness or flavors.
Here's what it might be — a clever scheme to bait Mexican cuisine lovers into eating "Indian" food. Also, NAAN IS NOT TACO.
What is so wrong with having naan and curry the old-fashioned way?
Well, whatever is their cup of tea, I guess. But, only if they knew how naan and butter chicken is eaten.
And also, gimme some non-fancy butter naan and butter chicken, ASAP. Without the cabbage.
