Things like vegetarianism, non vegetarianism, eating beef (the meat of a cow is considered a taboo by the Hindus; it is deemed holy and worshipped by them) and having pork (this is no less a taboo for the Muslims as it is 'haram' or forbidden in Islam) have a role to play, too. The common binding factor is perhaps the spicy character of most of the subcontinent's cuisines. Indians love to eat and most people here like their food with a generous dose of masalas and some 'tikhapan'- food that's hot and spicy. Another thing that is almost synonymous with Indian food cuisine is 'curry powder' which again is a misnomer to a lot of extent. All Indian 'curry' dishes (the word owes its origin to the Tamil word 'kari' meaning sauce) do not contain curry leaves and coconut milk- two key ingredients of South Indian cuisine, or for that matter 'curry powder' which is a mixture of different spices and in varying proportions. The spices used in the mixture vary from place to place and might be used alone or along with another set of spices. What's more, often a variety of cooking methods are embraced to bring about the desired taste, texture, aroma and appearance.

Rice is the staple diet of the people and beef is consumed by the non-vegetarians rather generously.

Some common North Indian foods such as the various kebabs and most of the meat dishes originated with Muslims advent into the country. The countries known as Pakistan and Bangladesh were a part of North and East India prior to the partition of India. As a result, the cuisines in these countries are very similar to northern and eastern Indian cuisine. South Indian. Main article: South Indian cuisine. South Indian cuisine is distinguished by a greater emphasis on rice as the staple grain, the liberal use of coconut and curry leaves particularly coconut oil, and the ubiquity of sambar and rasam (also called saaru) at meals. South Indian cooking is even more vegetarian-friendly than north Indian cooking. The practice of naivedya, or ritual offerings, to Krishna at the Krishna Mutt temple in Udupi, Karnataka, has led to the Udupi style of vegetarian cooking. The variety of dishes which must be offered to Krishna forced the cooks of the temple to innovate. Traditional cooking in Udupi Ashtamatha is characterized by the use of local seasonal ingredients. Garam masala is generally avoided in South Indian cuisine.
