Exotic and mesmerizing, India is a land of complexity and contrast, a vivid tapestry of people, languages and culture. Among the oldest civilization on earth, Indian culture has evolved over centuries absorbing ideas of cooking from the Greeks, the Persians, Arabs, Mughals, Portuguese, Dutch, French and British. From the Mughals, Northern Indians learned to make rice pilaf and biriyani, an elaborate layer of rice and meat. In the tropical south, food is hotter and seafood dominates the coastal regions. Over here, the treasured fruit of Coconut palm yields coconut milk for Curries and Coconut water for fermented beverage. From North to South, India offers an endless varied feast befitting its multi cultural heritage.
