Hello Folks, I am going to share an interesting story about the way in which India is taking England by storm with its food!

Many Indian cooking shows are beamed into British households via satellite T.V., and the British have long had a love affair with Indian spices – that was the sole reason behind The East India Company. Additionally, along with Nigella Lawson, many Indian cooks like Manju, and Natasha and Nikhil are celebrities.
There are many Indian grocery stores in England, especially in London, and many Indians live in England, again, especially in London. These grocery stores carry vegetables, spices, and food stuffs that are native to India, which Indians love.
