If there is one thing that can be said about the Indian cuisine is that, even if a lot of international cuisines have greatly influenced the traditional recipes and methods of Indian cooking, it has always retained its authenticity and originality. Furthermore, it has retained its culture and history, particularly when it comes to avoiding the use of pork or beef in their dishes due to religious reasons. As stated above, there are a variety of regional Indian cuisines that helped shape what it is right now. These regions are the Awadhi, Mughlai, Bengali, Rajasthani, Konkani, Udupi, Malabari, Punjabi, Hyderabadi, Sindhi, Marwari, Chettinadu, Dogri, Kashmiri, and Marathi. These regional Indian cuisines differ in ingredients used as well as methods used in cooking their dishes, and each regional Indian cuisine will be discussed in short details in the succeeding articles.

Depending on what kinds of agricultural produce are available, as well as what local and regional flora and fauna have to offer many dishes is not only different but depending on the respective region also different in taste although they have the same name. Is it a coastal region, is the natural environment mountainous or flat, are there rivers, is it dry and arid or marshy and wet, is it hot, is it temperate, is it cold, is the ground sandy or rocky, what is the quality of the soil, how much water for irrigation is available? These and other things are determining factors for what the respective local cuisine has to offer and how it tastes. It was with some surprise that I soon encountered real problems because concerning the cuisine of the Bamar (this is obviously what the Bamar mean with 'Pure Burmese' cuisine) I found that I was trying to find something nothing is actually known about. In other words, no historical records about what the Bamar have eaten exist for which reason it cannot be said what and to what extent the Bamar have actually contributed to what is nowadays called 'Burmese' cuisine.

In a traditional Burmese dish boiled (not steamed!) rice (htamin) always takes centre place. The rice is accompanied by a large array of curries (hin) made of fish (nga) or shrimps (pazun seik) or prawn (pazun a-htoke) or pork (wet-tha) or beef (ame-tha) or chicken (kyet), clear broth (hincho)and/or clear soups (hinga), vegetables such as cauliflower (kaw-phi-ban), cabbage (kaw-phi-htoke) or egg plant (kha-yan-thee), salads (athoke) made of e.g. tomato (kha-yan-chin-thee) or cucumber (tha-kwa-thee) with onion (kyet-tun-ni), seasonal fruits such as apple (pan-thee), banana (nga-pyaw-thee), mango (tha-yet-thee), and /or pineapple (nar-nat-thee), etc. and/or desserts such as semolina cake (sa-nwin-ma-kin). Contrary to non-Asian countries where meals are traditionally served in courses (appetizers, soup, main course and desert) in Burma all is served at once so that the diners can chose by themselves what to eat first and what last.

The use of tamarind to impart sourness distinguishes Tamil food.In Andhra food excessive amounts of chilies are used. Some popular dishes include the Biriyani, Ghee Rice with meat curry, sea-food which includes prawns, mussels, mackerel and paper thin Pathiris from Malabar area Western Western India has three major food groups such as Gujarati, Maharashtrian and Goan. Maharashtrian cuisine can be divided into two sections based on the geographical sections. The coastal regions depend more on rice, coconut, and fish. The hilly regions of the Western Ghats and Deccan plateau regions use groundnut instead of coconut and depend more on sorghum and millet as staples. Gujarati cuisine is predominantly vegetarian. Many Gujarati dishes have a hint of sweetness due to use of sugar or brown sugar. Goan cuisine is influenced by the Portuguese as Goa was colonized by Portugal. Saraswat cuisine forms an important part of coastal Konkani Indian cuisine. North Eastern The food of the North East is very different from food from other parts of India. This area's cuisine is more influenced by its neighbors, namely Burma and the China.

At first glance it seems to be clear what Burmese cuisine is, it is that what Burmese people are cooking. But taking a closer look reveals that things are not quite as clear as they seem to be because there is both inside and outside Burma a far spread ignorance as to the proper meaning of words. Burma is in many aspects a land of great diversity. There are many different ethnic groups such as the Mon, Shan, Kachin, Chin, Karen, Rakhine, Bamar, etc. The total number of officially recognised ethnic groups is 135 but there are much more because many are not recognised. And as diverse as the country's ethnicity is its cuisine. In other words, 'Burmese (Myanmar)' cuisine is just a catch-all term. What is called 'Burmese' cuisine is actually the sum total of the many different local cuisines and the cuisines of the bordering countries Bangladesh, India, China, Laos and Thailand for cuisines do not know clear cut by humans more or less arbitrary drawn borders.

In fact, the Indian curry has carved a name for itself on the food map of the world. From London to Libya, from Montreal to the Middle East--the food lovers simply love devouring the spicy and lip-smacking Indian food. The entire South East Asian region loves the spicy and hot Indian food and the local cuisines of the area show strong Indian influence. This is not to suggest that Indian cuisines do not reflect foreign influence. Actually, the Indian food shows strong foreign influence especially of the Middle East, Central Asia, Mediterranean, and Europe (particularly Portugal and England). Tomato, chilies, and potato used generously and commonly in preparing the various food items in India were introduced to India by Portugal. Clever and generous use of various spices such as chilies, black mustard, cumin, turmeric, fenugreek, ginger, coriander, asafetida, garlic, and clove distinguish the Indian food which is, interestingly, identified by its distinct aroma, flavor and color.

Earlier, majority of the Indians--mostly Buddhists, Jains, and the Hindus--were vegetarians due to religious reasons, but now a sizeable section of the country are non-vegetarians and relish non-vegetarian products such as chicken, eggs, fish and meat. That's why a variety of mouth-watering non-vegetarian food items such as chicken curry, butter chicken, chicken masala, fish curry, and prawn curry are prepared all over India and relished by people. Indian Butter chicken and chicken masala, in fact, have become popular all over the world. Butter chicken is now the national dish of the United Kingdom, and has replaced the nation's former national dish, Fish & Chips. Categorized Indian Cuisines.

Before the mid-sixteenth century, the cuisine of Trentino-Alto Adige was extremely simple. The inhabitants ate only to keep body and soul together. The cuisine had far to go and a lot to develop. Many historical events that took place after this lent a distinct shape and flavor to the cuisine of this region. Council of Trent. The Council of Trent was the first event of significance that changed the cuisine of this region for the better in 1550, the year in which it was organized. This council was an Ecumenical Council of the Roman Catholic Church, organized to find ways of countering the rise of Protestant Reformation. One would wonder how such an event, which bore no connection whatsoever to cuisine, influenced the food habits of the inhabitants of this region. The religious officials who participated in this event, were gourmets who appreciated fine cuisine, which was why this event inspired the people of this region to prepare and appreciate fine cuisine. This is one of the best examples of how historical events can shape a region's cuisine.

Another problem arising from this approach is cultural narrowness of Italians if they are too often in the prior backyard, thinking that there is no better than the one that offers their territory and what their mother's kitchen prepares home. This lack of openness can not do the Italians a people further back, in terms of food culture, compared to other countries, where the various cuisines of the world have been in contact with each other by making the taste of the public and open the mentality of the people. The Land of Spices, India boasts of several mouth-watering cuisines which delight the gourmet the world over no end. So much so that when they fail to find Indian food in their respective nations, they, taking the fabled Spice Route, travel to India on the spice trail to enjoy the various tasty and lip-smacking Indian cuisines.
