I have a big portion of relatives from India (Bombaywalas). I hate the culture of aunties scrutinizing people when they're chubby/put on weight, and then getting angry when you become underweight... It's so ironic. I also hate the amount of oil used in curries, it's so unnecessary lol

I'm late, but I'm Pakistani. It's so hard with an ED... if you refuse to eat one paratha your parents think your going to starve and die... ask for one more and your parents think your going to blow up like a balloon and explode.  :huh:

There are no recipes
There’s just throwing in ingredients by just guessing the amounts and tasting and adjusting until it tastes right

Same my mom does not get how I feel when she adds butter. Worst thing about Indian food is the amount of butter oil & cream added to things oof.

As an indian
Indian food is my biggest fear food

I don’t eat it unless it’s some bastardized American version coming out of a package that’s so far from authentic if the label didn’t say the name I’d think it’s something else entirely

It tastes good & there are some healthier options but a lot of Indian food is oily & has lot of oil, butter, cream or is just fried & not the healthiest. Indian sweets are also so high in sugar like if u google them u can see lot tend to be drenched in sugar & are high in cals. I’m Indian & even imo I’m more scared of some Indian food compared to other foods. Calorie counts can always vary so greatly with Indian food too so overall imo it’s like a big fear if u have an ED lol.
