Harsh Goenka shared a crisp list of the cuisines Indians preferred in 2021, along with a list of the most ordered foods, and also fruits and vegetables people ate the most.

In his Twitter post that was uploaded yesterday on 28th December, Harsh Goenka listed top 5 cuisines ordered in India – Indian, Pan Asian, Chinese, Mexican and Korean. Harsh wrote in the end of the post – “No real surprise anywhere, except Korean cuisine being popular!” This is actually true, as we saw Korean music, Korean shows and even Korean food gaining foothold in Indian’s hearts.

Next, Harsh Goenka also stated the most-loved fruits and vegetables of the year, which were – tomato, banana, garlic, potato and whole red chilli. While these lists stated the most obvious choices to order and eat, 2021 also saw people at least searching for some out-of-the-ordinary food items and recipes. Google released its annual ‘Year In Search’ report and revealed that Enoki Mushroom was the most-searched food item in India on Google in 2021. Other foods included Banana bread, Modak and Methi Malai Matar, Chicken Soup and more. Click here to know more.
