Indian recipes





Indian cuisine is a vast and varied one. It is reflective of the myriad cultures and traditions that make up this vibrant country of ours. Every region has its own way of cooking and serving food, as well as customs and practices concerning food. The food of each region is greatly influenced by not just the local availability of vegetables, fruits, herbs and spices, but also by the historic and cultural background of that community. Indians are so fond of their traditional food that they take along the knowledge and practices even when they go abroad.

With the advent of cookbooks and online portals, recipes do get passed on from region to region, but still you can find distinct differences in the way the food tastes, because of the availability of ingredients and common cooking practices in each region. Pav Bhaji made in South India, for example, is quite different from how it tastes in then North; and likewise Idli and Sada Dosa made by North Indians might be quite different from how the South Indians make it!

India’s cuisine is categorized mainly based on the region – Punjabi, Gujarati, Rajasthani, Maharashtrian, South Indian, Bengali, Hyderabadi, and so on. Some cuisines rely on extensive use of spices like cardamom, cumin, mustard and bay leaf to impart flavour to their food, while others get the flavour by tempering with ingredients like mustard and jeera. Depending on the region, the main course might focus on Roti or rice, with accompaniments like Subzis, Dal, Sambhar, etc. Bajra Roti and Green Pea Pulao together with Pyazwali Bhindi and Dum Aloo could make an interesting meal, just as Cabbage Poriyal, Sambhar, Rasam and Rice would too. Indian cuisine is also famous for its mithai, which includes an unending list of delightful recipes like ladoos, halwas, rabdis, jamuns, malai sweets, etc. The deeper one ventures into Indian cuisine, the more they can appreciate the diversity and limitless variety it offers.
