First, the chicken tikka conquered Britain, now it’s taking over restaurant kitchens in Poland. According to Devender Singh, owner of Maharaja, the first Indian restaurant to set shop in Warsaw, nearly a dozen Indian restaurants have opened in the capital city in the last few months. Be it Buddha Bar, Namaste India, Ganesh or Bombay Masala, all these eateries are packed to the seams with enthusiastic foodies. “A part of the success is due to the rise in the number of Polish tourists visiting India in the last five years. Their stay in India has made them more attuned to Indian food,” says Janusz Kryzowski, president of the Indian-Polish Cultural Committee. Soon, chicken tikka masala could become a national favourite.
