FOODS of India

As diverse as our country is it is but natural that the food habits too will be totally different from east to west and south to north. From the simple south Indian Dosa to the rich North Indian food reminiscent of the Mughal Rule we have everything. We also have international food cooked both in Indian and International styles. Meaning you can get Chinese Chowmein which will be nowhere near the Original that you get in China and will have used Turmeric Powder and local spices!! It all depends on which city you are and the type of Restaurant you are in. Obviously the five star ones will serve you authentic food and the cheaper versions can do anything, they can also spring a surprise on you by giving you something not found elsewhere at a cheaper and tastier version.

Here is my slide show not even one tenth complete.. but slowly over time I will build on it. I thought if I wait then it will be a long wait.. so as and when I shoot food I will add to the slide show.

I am also giving here a link to another blog which will compliment my own blog because it gives lot of information of places the authors have visited.. and also some recipes of Indian Food..

It is this

Hogenakkal Falls, Tamil Nadu/ Karnataka

Here is a link to Tourist Spots in Tamilnadu

And here are the pictures of Hogenakkal Falls. However you will not see much water falling over the rocks this time. Only in August there is plenty water to fall over the rocks in multiple water falls. But amazing!!

How to reach? You can drive down from Bangalore or from Chennai. It is 300 kms from Chennai, driving down the new toll road to Krishnagiri then turn left towards Salem to Dharmagiri. From Bangalore you drive down straight to these places via hosur.

I liked the Villages more than Chennai. Because they seemed to be very neat and clean - when compared to other villages in India- whereas Chennai compared to other Metros is ..hmm.. well... ]
