Regions and Religions Fabricate the Indian Cuisine

 

Spices are unquestionably the cornerstone of Indian cooking and are widely cultivated according to the region. Regions and Religions fabricate the Indian Cuisine without any doubt. Indian Cuisine is a mixture of every type of spice, pepper and the love that the food serves for you. This Cuisine is different from rest of the world not only in the aspect of taste but in cooking methods as well. It blends the taste of the history of India and its culture.

The period of British colonial rule left its mark on the food of India and the blending of eastern spices into western food that began at that time has endured to this day. Examples include kedgeree (a rice and lentil breakfast dish), mulligatawny (“pepper water”) soup and the ubiquitous curry. Curry is a catch-all term used originally by the Raj to refer to any sauce dish of spicy meat, fish or vegetables and is probably an adaption of the Tamil word kari, meaning “sauce”. The Curry Club serves you every type of dish of Indian Cuisine and tries to serve you what you are actually looking for. Each region of India has its own style of cooking and distinct flavors. The North is known for its tandoori and korma dishes; the South is famous for hot and spicy foods; the East specializes in chili curries; and the West uses coconut and seafood, whereas the Central part of India is a blend of all. As the majority of India’s population practices Hinduism, vegetarianism is widespread across the continent, but Hindu food habits also vary according to regional traditions.
