American cuisine was originally made by natives (Indians), but now includes all cuisine made by immigrants so it’s cuisine from all over the world.
Ethnic food is made by different ethnic groups than Indians. It’s more popular than American (Mexican, Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese, Indian). Those people lacked native ingredients so it’s only slightly similar to the native cuisine.
