Food Map of India



                                India is a very diverse country.The diversity can be seen in culture,geography,climate and food.The common factor in Indian food across the country is that spices are used to enhance the flavor the food.The most important point to remember is that the right amount and combination of spices is needed to create the heavenly food.Even the oils used for cooking is different from one part of the country to the other.

                                    The other main component of Indian food is Vegetables.Almost every meal consists of a vegetable dish.The choice of vegetable depends on the other side dish to be served in the meal.An important factor which affects Indian food is Religion.The hindu vegetarian meal is widespread all over India and the cooking of meats is influenced by the Muslim culture.Some well known examples are Tandoori Chicken,Biryani,rogan josh,Tandoori Roti,Kababs etc.
