  • Indian food has been lumped in the “cheap eats” category for decades in America. But in NYC, there’s a rich tradition of high-end Indian restaurants that challenge this stereotype, serving up inventive South Asian cuisine in a white tablecloth setting. To help Horsepowar learn more about the world of Indian fine-dining in New York City, she’s teaming up with the hilarious actor, comedian, and “Daily Show” vet Aasif Mandvi. At Junoon, a Michelin-starred Indian restaurant in Manhattan, Aasif and Horsepowar sample some of chef Akshay Bhardwaj’s most creative dishes while discussing spice, price, and the stereotypes that still surround “ethnic” cuisine in the U.S. in 2018. From ghost pepper-laced tandoori chicken, to a massive, curry-topped lamb shank, Horsepowar gets a crash-course in Indian haute cuisine from a certified comedy legend.Subscribe to First We Feast on YouTube: http://goo.gl/UxFzhKCheck out more of First We Feast here:http://firstwefeast.com/https://twitter.com/firstwefeasthttps://www.facebook.com/FirstWeFeasthttp://instagram.com/firstwefeastSeason 1Episode 2First We Feast videos offer an iconoclastic view into the culinary world, taking you behind-the-scenes with some of the country's best chefs and finding the unexpected places where food and pop culture intersect.

    Chicken Tikka Masala was actually created in Scotland by an Indian chef who was catering for a fussy British person, so he served it in a tomato sauce

    Mr. Aziz: Joe's 29-minute guarantee is a promise, man. I know to you, Parker, a promise means nothing, but to me it's serious.
    Peter Parker: It's serious to me too, Mr. Aziz.
    Mr. Aziz: You're fired.
