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”.
