While the growth of the British Empire in India had many impacts, it is perhaps the culinary world in the country that gained the most. The English is given the credit of bringing whisky to India. In the late 1820s, Edward Dyer moved from England to set up the first brewery in India at Kasauli. It was later shifted to nearby Solan. Besides this, the British Raj also introduced the club culture and an interesting array of short eats like cutlets, croquettes, sandwiches etc.
