1. You think Indian food is from India.
Well, if we’re being pedantic then yes it is, historically. But almost all Indian restaurants in the country have adapted to the British taste buds over the last fifty years, and some of the more popular dishes don’t even exist back in India. Many cooks from India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh who immigrated to Britain created recipes which frequently were simply a hybrid of popular British foods and Indian spices. Chicken tikka masala, for example, is actually a British dish. You could even say nowadays that a typical night out wouldn’t be complete without ‘having an Indian’.
