As said previously, there are dishes that go by the same name and are available and liked across the country. But again, they taste different depending on whether you eat them in Yangon, Mon State, Mandalay, Shan State or Rakhine State. A good example for this is the 'unofficial Burmese national breakfast dish' Mohinga. Mohinga, a hearty fish soup comprising mainly fish broth made of (preferably) catfish, fish and shrimp paste, banana palm stem or blossom, onion, ginger, garlic, lemongrass and chilly, thickened with chickpea flower and served with rice noodles, hard boiled eggs and lemon or lime wedges, is originated from Mon state and loved in the greater part of Burma but not very popular in the tribal areas along the border between Burma and Thailand. Other examples are coconut noodles (O Nu Kaukswe), pickled tea leaf salad (Lahpet) and vermicelli in fish or chicken broth (Mont Di).

Vedic Hindus since the Vedic times gave a number of vegetarian recipes to the Indian cuisine. Later, Christians, British, Buddhists, Portuguese, Muslims from Turkey, Arabia, and Persia, and others had their influence as well when they arrived in India. Vegetarianism came to prominence during the rule of Ashoka, one of the greatest of Indian rulers who was a promoter of Buddhism; currently, 31% of Indians are vegetarians. In India, food, culture, religion, and regional festivals are all closely related. Indian meat and fish cuisine is mostly influenced by the Muslim population. Rice, atta (whole wheat flour), and almost five dozen varieties of pulses form the staple of Indian cuisine with the most important being chana (bengal gram), toor (pigeon pea or red gram), urad (black gram) and mung (green gram). Chana is usually utilized in different forms, and can be used whole or processed in a mill that removes the skin, eg dhuli moong or dhuli urad, and can also be sometimes mixed with rice and khichri (a food that is excellent for digestion and similar to the chick pea, but smaller and more flavorful). The Indian dal consists exclusively of pulses except chana.

The Indian techniques and methods of cooking can be traced back to about 5,000 years ago. It has been shaped by the land as well as the produce that comes from a specific region; thus, there are varying regional Indian cuisines. Aside from this, their religion has also greatly influenced their cooking. Another factor that significantly influenced the Indian cuisine is the traders as well as the travelers that pass through the region. They leave behind new cooking methods as well as new dishes and new ingredients that the locals incorporate into their cooking. The rulers who ruled also influenced Indian cuisine. But what is most fascinating is that the identity of the original Indian cuisine never got lost. In fact, it has retained its uniqueness, and all those influences only enhanced the cuisine and made it richer.

India is a country that boasts of unity in diversity and the story with its cuisine is somewhat similar. The term 'Indian cuisine' is a great misnomer because Indian food cuisine is not just one type of cuisine. The much talked about 'Indian cuisine' is rather the identification of the various cuisines inherent to the states, regions, cultures, climatic conditions and to some extent the religions that make it up.It is interesting to know that Indian food cuisine can be divided in terms of the state or region it comes from, e.g. Maharashtrian cuisine, Gujrati cuisine, Odiya cuisine, Rajasthani cuisine, Andhra Pradesh cuisine, Bengali cuisine, etc. It can also be segregated as North Indian, North East Indian and South Indian cuisine. North Indian cuisine takes into account Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand and West-Central & Eastern Uttar Pradesh cuisine. It also includes Bhojpuri and Mughlai cuisine. While North East Indian is the collective term used for Assamese, Arunachali, Tripuri, Manipuri, Meghalayan, Naga, Mizoram and Sikkimese cuisine. Tribal cuisines like that of Garo, Khasi and Bodo, are part of this. South Indian cuisine on the other hand comprises Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu cuisine.
