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
