Garima Arora, India’s first woman chef to have won a Michelin star, is on a mission: She wants to educate the West that there is more to Indian cuisine than naan and curry. To this end, she has started a not-for-profit initiative that would explore ways to reinvent Indian cuisine.

Speaking to a news website recently, she said there is a lot of curiosity about Indian food. “Indian-origin chefs working around the world have begun experimenting,” she said.
