Indian Veg Recipes, 4000 Indian Vegetarian 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 historical and cultural background of that community. Indians are so fond of the traditional food that they take along the knowledge and practices even when they go abroad.
