Asparagus with Indian Spices
This is one of my all time favourite dishes and even though I know it's not typically Indian it's a dish that is very special to me. I created this for my very first pop up menu which took place at a local French restaurant for a Indo-French fusion evening and it went down an absolute storm.
This dish represents the French influence on Indian food in the Pondicherry region of south east India. The French colonised this region in 1607 until 1954. Over the 300 years of French rule this area gave rise to a special Creole community of Franco-Indian people. This community still remains in Pondicherry as does the French influence on the architecture as well as the cuisine.
I do think food history is facinating but before I ramble on you need to get your self some lovely duck breasts and give this dish a go.
