Indian Food 101 and Sriracha Butter Chicken with Heems | Sean in the Wild

  • Published on Aug 29, 2017
  • Former Das Racist rapper Himanshu Suri-better known as Heems-is here to school Sean Evans on the ins and outs of Indian cooking. From the massive, wall-to-wall spice aisle at an Indian market, to the stacks of ramen-like masala munchies and Parle-G biscuits, Heems breaks down the dos and dont's for desi grocery shopping. Back at the Suris' Long Island home, Heems and his mother cook Sean butter chicken, okra, and naan bread, adding some Sriracha and Halal Guys-style white sauce for a taste of both New York and South Asia.

    This isn’t even real Indian food lol. They just buy pre packaged shit from grocery stores which are nothing like your “grocery store” in India. In India this is looked down upon in conventional families but more modern families like this idea.
