The Bene Israel are one of three Jewish communities native to India. They are also likely the oldest – tracing their history to the 2nd century BC – and largest. They are now based in Bombay, though most of their members have emigrated to Israel. Their cuisine is based on Indian flavors and foodstuffs, but it’s adapted to fit with Jewish dietary requirements and holidays. Two of the three dishes I made were really good. Check out my Bene Israel recipes.
