Is There Yet an Indo-American Cuisine?

Perilagu Khan | Jan 6, 2010 01:34 PM

It is now common practice to differentiate between Italian food and Italian-American food.

Likewise, there seems to be a discernable difference between Chinese food and Chinese-American or Americanized Chinese food.

Are we yet to the point where there is a distinct Indo-American cuisine? I have heard, for instance, that chicken tikka masala is a westernized (if not Americanized) Indian dish, but don't know if there are any others.

Anyway, I'm just curious to know what you lot think about this.
