Indian-Chinese cuisine emerged as a result of the migration of Chinese to the Indian subcontinent many decades ago. As with Indian cooking, Chinese cooking is provincial and the staple is rice. When Indians went to Chinese restaurants in India, they were looking for spicy Chinese food. What emerged was a cuisine that merged Indian spices, which suited the local tastes, with classic Chinese recipes and cooking techniques. So Indian-Chinese food, blended with Indian spices and seasonings overlaid with Chinese techniques was added to the other culinary traditions.
