As many rulers from around the world came and ruled India, Indian cuisine today does the same to the world’s Menu. Just as every Indian has his/her background which consists of mixtures and concoctions of numerous Tastes, Indian food has similar origins. Pointing a finger at one particular type of cuisine is as difficult as pointing a finger and trying to identify one singular race as Indian. The flavors of India are especially loved by the world because of the rich history, the varied mixture, and the warm hospitality on the plate it is served in. Thus Indian is ‘Food for thought’, for body, mind, and soul.
Imagine a picture of rich aromatic gravies, spicy vegetable stir-fries, moist and tender slow-cooked meat, and sinful desserts. The availability of a plethora of vegetables, fruits, grains, and spices makes the cuisine vibrant and colorful.
