What we absolutely adore about Indian food is that rather than pouring in tons of oil, butter, and Crisco to add flavor to their foods (like most American dishes), they season their food with - gasp! - actually seasonings. Cumin, coriander, red pepper flakes and many more spices give their foodstuffs a sumptuous, rich flavor. And because there's minimal oil, Indian food tends to be rather healthy for you, too.
