Google celebrated Anglo-Indian traveler Sake Dean Mahomed's 260th birth anniversary, who was the first Indian author to publish a book in English, with a special doodle. The doodle features kitchen ingredients like tamarind and salt, surrounded by celery leaves. Mahomed, known as the man of many talents, was one of the first entrepreneurs who gained popularity by building cultural connections between India and England. He ventured into various industries like publishing, F& B and wellness. After launching his book, he also opened an Indian restaurant in England. The eatery soon became one of the most popular cuisines in Great Britain. The Indian businessman opened the first ever Indian restaurant in Britain, 'Hindostanee Coffee House' (HCH), after he moved to London in 1810. In a tribute, Google wrote, "The Epicure's Almanack — an early London restaurant guide - hailed the luxurious HCH as a place for nobility to enjoy hookah and Indian dishes of the highest perfection."
