In our final installment of the Follow the Crumbs Indian Starter Pack, we explore how British laziness (or stupidity) created the greatest lie ever told about Indian food: the existence of curry. We also uncover Faye’s American Arab identity and complete the circle of life through vindaloo and beer. Special note: Faye recorded this episode while avoiding a fiery death at the hands of a hairy space heater.
In the third installment of our India series, we discuss how teenage angst fueled the creation of the Mughal Empire, why Babur hated India (for no valid reasons, Ria might add), and how Akbar brought shame to his ancestors by allowing Indian culture to corrupt him. Finally, we trace the cultural mixing that led to the evolution of biryani.
In this episode, we unpack why Indian people are so good at cooking vegetables, why ghee will make you immortal, and how to treat gods who visit your home. This episode could’ve also been called: Everything you wanted to know about Hinduisum (contains some inaccuracies).
