Indian Cuisine

Indian Cuisine consists of a variety of regional and traditional cuisines native to eastern foods. The cuisines vary substantially due to diversity in soil, climate, and culture. The cuisine uses locally available spices, herbs, vegetables, and fruits to enhance the meals with the flavours only Indian cuisine can offer.

Indian food is heavily influenced by cultural choices and traditions. It has shaped the history of international relations, such as the spice trade between India and Europe, which was mainly catalytic for Europe’s Age of Discovery.

Spices were brought into Europe from India and have influenced other cuisines across the world, especially those from the Middle East and Southeast Asia.

Some of the most common foods in Indian Cuisine include pearl millet, rice, whole-wheat flour, and a variety of lentils such as Masoor and Tuer. Most Indian dishes are cooked in vegetable oil, and peanut oil is popular in northern and western India, and mustard oil in eastern India.

Meats are a substantial ingredient in Indian Cuisine and provide the dishes with its most important ingredient other than the spices. Chicken and mutton are the most commonly used meats for Indian meals.  Fish and beef are also used in some parts of India but are not widely popular.

In other countries such as the UK, beef and fish are popular meats to use in Indian cuisines, with the restaurants catering to the public of the UK where fish and beef is seen as a popular type of meat.
