It’s one of the great tragedies that the spice-filled splendour of Indian and Sri Lankan cuisine, which draws inspiration from dozens of ethnic subcultures and centuries of history, has been sold to the western world as simply ‘One butter chicken, one lamb Rogan Josh and three garlic naan.’ But not on this trip. Taste fresh paratha bread fried in ghee, tamarind chutney and vegetable pickle, onion bhaji from a Delhi street stall, home-cooked Rajasthan curry and real Sri Lankan tea, picked straight from the plantation. Butter chicken will never be the same again.
