Come the Middle Ages,tea and spices were introduced to India by the travelers and traders. Much later, the Indian cuisine was again influenced by the invaders and conquerors coming from Central Asia as well as the Afghan region. It was also during this time that seasonings became a part of the Indian cuisine, particularly the use of saffron. By the 18th century, when the British came to India to rule the land, a marriage between the two cuisines and two cultures happened, and it has been coined as the Anglo-Indian cuisine. It was not surprising then to see traditional British cuisine like roast beef having an Indian influence by making use of local Indian spices like red chilies as well as curry. Raj traditions also emerged, one of which is the high-tea tradition.
Life in Burmese households is traditionally taking place on the floor. Chairs and beds are known and exist in households but are mostly used by old people only what goes especially for Burma's vast rural population. I hope you found my article on the Burmese cuisine and related matters interesting and instructive. I am German by birth but am living since 25 years in Burma/Myanmar. I know the country, its people, its culture and its history very well what has made me an authority on Burma. When it is about books on Burma, stick with the expert. After retiring in 2012 I turned writer and am writing books on Burma the country I am privileged to call home. Please do also see my Professional Photos and my profile. I have so far written and published four richly illustrated books on Burma. In my books I am writing extensively and detailed about the country, its people, culture, history and the life in it. The books are available as Kindle eBooks on Amazon.
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.
