Romani cuisine (Gypsy food) is mostly influenced by Europeans. Although, Romani people are believed to originate from India but their cuisine doesnt incorporate any Indian or South Asian food. Gypsies, as they are referred to as nowadays, have a rich and complicated history which is reflected on their food. Their food culture is all about finding thrifty, resourceful and delicious ways to nourish and purify the body. This is the reason why their cuisine is called the little- known food for the soul. Romani dishes are usually made with the use of spices such as paprika, garlic and bell peppers and they often use potatoes, corn or cabbage. Typical Sunday food for them are dumplings with cottage cheese or with roasted onion. This food is cheap, easy to prepare and filling, so after lunch like this they dont usually have any dinner. 90 percent of the recipes have no measurements or real instructions because they are family recipes and according to tradition, the chef should be in a good mood while they are cooking because their energy will pass on to everyone who will eat their food.
