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. Being a vast country India boasts of several tasty and distinct cuisines which vastly differ from one region to another. Indian cuisines can be broadly divided into five distinct units: North India Cuisine, South India Cuisine, East India Cuisine, West India Cuisine, and North-East India Cuisine.

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.

Italian cuisine is undoubtedly one of the best known and appreciated in the world and restaurants serving Italian cuisine in the world among the most popular by far, though often they have lost their ties with the homeland and the plates, therefore, have taken a local results, with crippling sometimes bordering on comedy. The great strength of Italian cuisine, and, paradoxically, also its limit, is the great diversity that characterizes it. The cuisine of most states has a variety moving from region to region according to differences in climate, land, and the historical ones. In Italy these factors is extremely varied and diverse, have brought Italian cuisine to what it is, a kitchen that is very different by simply moving a few hundred miles.

The Vast Sub-continent of India offers a range of culinary delights as rich and diverse as its people and history. Indian cuisine can be divided into North Indian, South Indian, West Indian, East Indian and North East Indian. Northern North Indian cuisine is distinguished by the proportionally high use of dairy products like ghee, milk, paneer, and yoghurt. Gravies are typically dairy-based. Other ingredients like chilies, saffron, and nuts are also commonly used. Goat and lamb meats are favored ingredients of many northern Indian recipes.North Indian cooking features the use of the "tawa" for making roti and paratha, and "tandoor" for making naan, and kulcha and also main courses like tandoori chicken.Puri and bhatoora, which are deep fried in oil, are also common. The samosa is a popular North Indian snack, and it is now commonly found in other parts of India, Central Asia and the Middle East also. A common variety is filled with boiled, fried, or mashed potato. Minced meat, cheese mushroom and chick pea are also used for filling.The staple food of most of North India is a variety of lentils, vegetables, and roti .

The factor that most influenced Italian cuisine is, however, the historical one: the tumultuous history of our country, made up of continuous invasions and a high degree of fragmentation in the states and small states has led to a great cultural diversity which has greatly influenced the cuisine of each area. For example, dishes and typical cuisine of Emilia are Lombard and French-style, cow's meat and pork, butter and milk. Entering Romagna, just out from the province of Bologna, traditional cuisine changes radically: the cheeses are sheep, sheep meat is consumed so much, and you use the extra virgin olive oil. The boundary that determines those differences is what divides the state of the Church and Lombard rule, first tied to the traditions of pastoralism and cultivation of the second related to the breeding of cattle. Such examples, there are dozens, all over the Italian territory, and that is why Italian food has become what it is, a collection of dozens of local and regional cuisines.

Punjabi Cuisine. This Indian cuisine can be found in Punjab and it's a little similar to Mughlai cuisine from the North West frontier. These dishes are topped off with butter and ghee, which makes them even more appetizing and appealing. Some of the famous dishes are Dal Makhani (Black lentils), Tandoori Chicken, Rogan Josh and Naan. The most famous drink is lassi (buttermilk). Restaurants across India serve this cuisine and you can check this cuisine out at the renowned restaurant Punjabi by Nature in New Delhi. Kashmiri Cuisine. This cuisine is found in Kashmir, and it is influenced by cuisines from Uzbekistan and parts of Afghanistan. This Indian cuisine uses a lot of yoghurt, turmeric and mutton but the chefs cut down on the spices and onions. Some of the popular dishes are Yakhein (a yoghurt based dish with chicken), Razmah Goagi (a combination of kidney bean and turnip) and Gaad (a variety of Fish with radish). Kashmiri cuisine isn't as popular as the other cuisines, so not many restaurants serve this kind of food.

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.

It is, however, not only complete dishes that the Indian cuisine has introduced in to the Burmese cuisine. It has also given the traditional Burmese cooking style an Indian touch by having Burmese women and cooks use Indian condiments such as Masala (curry powder) what is traditionally not used in Burma. And here the story does not end, the introduction of milk, butter and dairy products such a cheese, yoghurt and sour milk as well as the drinking of black tea with milk and sugar (surprised?) are additional ways in which Indians have influenced the Burmese cuisine. The Chinese have ensured their presence in the Burmese cuisine in two ways. One way was to introduce Chinese-style cooking into Burmese households and restaurants by using previously not known, lesser used or differently combined vegetables such as celery and Chinese cabbage, fungus such as Chinese mushrooms, sauces such as oyster sauce and other things such as bean curd (tofu). The other way in which the Chinese have carved out their place in the Burmese cuisine is Chinese dishes such as Peking-baigin (Peking duck), Kawpyan-kyaw (Spring Rolls) and Pausi (Chinese dumpling). Chinese cooking style, Chinese vegetables, etc. and dishes have become integral part of the Burmese cuisine.

The disadvantage of not having a national cuisine Italian. The French do not deny we have a national cuisine, a true "Italian cuisine", but had only a strong local cuisine, based on the "grandma's dishes, so good, but certainly not refined. No accident that the great dishes of Italian cuisine famous around the world are actually simple dishes to fast food, like pizza or classic cuisine of the poor, such as pasta with tomato sauce. In contrast, the French cuisine is recognized as a great and fine cuisine with its rich national dishes: the great pastries, great dishes of meat, great cheese, egg dishes, etc.. In other words, less variety, but with major "pillars". If we look at the whole situation, having a kitchen so varied and these differences can only be an advantage. Perhaps the problem of Italian cuisine is a cultural... A problem of the Italians, rather than their kitchen. The parochialism and infighting between local authorities, duchies and small states that have marked our history have an impact on the image of our kitchen: the inability to make a system, typical of the Italian mentality, somehow prevents the Italian cuisine to appear as a great national cuisine, but as a set of small regional cuisines, the sum does not reach the absolute value it deserves.

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.
