The magic of Rome: endless, enchanting, enthralling

Modern Indian food: the new rage

There are a series of innovations many Indian chefs have been trying for a while in the West. Instead of oily curries and over-spiced dishes, these lighter variations focus on the quality of ingredients and redefined presentation, writes Vir Sanghvi.
