Try these Asian curries with rice and enjoy your dinner.
Asian cuisine includes several regional cuisines like Central Asian, East Asian, North Asian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and West Asian. Rice, ginger, garlic, sesame seeds, chiles, dried onions, soy, and tofu are some common ingredients in many cultures in the East and Southeast areas of the continent. Stir-frying, steaming, and deep frying are a few methods that are commonly used to prepare Asian cuisine. While rice is found in almost all Asian cuisines, different types of rice are popular in different parts of the country. Laos' culture, religious tradition, and national identity are all based on glutinous rice. Basmati rice is popular in India, jasmine rice is popular in Southeast Asia, long-grain rice is popular in China, and short-grain rice is popular in Japan and Korea. In India, people usually prefer rice at dinner. They are usually served with some dal or some vegetable curry. Asian curries are a perfect blend of veggies, meat and broth that give an authentic regional flavour.
