“Some of the best food of any country is its street food, and Chai Pani features chaat – crunchy, spicy, sweet, tangy, brightly flavored Indian street snacks. And because there’s nothing more comforting and delicious in any culture than a home cooked meal , Chai Pani also brings you thalis – traditional family meals highlighting India’s amazing culinary diversity.

The honors were awarded for the first time in 2019. They were canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to the Covid pandemic.

The nominees for this year’s awards were more diverse and of more geographic variety in terms of cuisines than in previous years.

“Looking at the audience and seeing so many different people, it feels different. It’s about reflecting the true diversity of the industry,” said Dawn Padmore, vice president of awards.
