New Delhi: Spicy food plays a very important role in a typical Indian's life.

Whether they are on a holiday to some exotic location or on an official trip, they will find a Indian restaurant to satisfy their taste buds.

Indians still prefer Indian cooking styles with a focus on regional food, even while eating out. We Indians are habituated to give every international food an Indian twist.

That's why you can see hamburgers with aloo tikki, Chinese cooked with Indian spices and served with Indian chutney and many more.

While there will always be takers for dal makhni and butter chicken, there is now a community of international travelers who enjoy International cuisines.

 Indians, who traditionally always ate at home, are now increasingly dining out, but with a strong preference for Indian flavours they are generally disappointed.
