While there’s no doubt about the fact that traveling the globe is a great way to see the amazing destinations that this world has to offer, traveling is also a great way to eat some delicious international dishes. If you’re missing travel and food, then you’ll be happy to know that you don’t have to go without for months on end. It’s super easy to make your own international dishes at home, and all you need is the right ingredients and a sense of adventure.
Hot chicken from Nashville
If you have ever been to Nashville, you’ll know that this city is famous for two things. It’s famous for being the home of country music, and it’s known for being home to some of the best hot chicken that this world has ever seen. This dish isn’t for the faint-hearted, but it’s one that you just have to try at home if you love hot, juicy chicken. Of course, you can tailor this chicken to your own needs if you want to. While most hot chicken recipes use hot sauce such as Tabasco within the recipe, you could eliminate the hot sauce completely and eat the fried chicken on its own.
Nasi goreng from Indonesia
Nasi goreng is Indonesia’s national dish, and whether you love the country or whether you have it on your bucket list, you just have to give this recipe a whirl at home. One of the reasons why nasi goreng is so popular is because it has everything you could possibly want to eat in one recipe. It’s normally eaten as a breakfast, but there’s nothing to say that you can’t eat it as a light lunch or even a delicious dinner. It’s made from rice, eggs, onions, shrimp paste, and so much more, and you can serve it with whatever you like. If you want to go traditional, though, you should serve it with some crunchy prawn crackers.
Katsu curry from Japan
It’s pretty easy to ring up your local Japanese restaurant and have them deliver a katsu curry for your dinner, but where’s the fun in that? Food tastes so much better when you make it yourself, and there’s a certain amount of pride that comes with making something from scratch. Katsu curry is one of Japan’s most-loved dishes not only in the country itself, but also across the world – and what’s great about this recipe is that you can change it up if you want. If you don’t eat meat, why not swap out the chicken for some sweet potato? The combination of the breaded chicken or sweet potato with the sticky rice, the side salad, and the delicious katsu sauce is just too good to ignore.
