Spices in Italian Cuisine. Don't limit your ideas of Italian cuisine to a few dishes of spaghetti and meatball. Italian cuisine is rich, complex, and diverse. More spices find their way into an Italian dish than just garlic. Many people are under the misconception that the Italians use an over abundance of spices in their food. This is because, in America, people who have neither been to Italy nor tasting Italian cuisine cook Italian food. Italians use spices only to enhance the natural flavor of particular dishes. Moreover, the nature of Italian food depends on the seasons, and due to this, Italians do not depend heavily on the use of spices. Their meats, pastas, and sauces usually have a fresh flavor of their own. Travelers, however, has discovered that north Italians use more spices in their food than south Italians. When considering Italian cuisine, it is of great importance to realize that there isn't any standard Italian cuisine. With nineteen region, there are nineteen variants of the Italian cuisine. Each region has its unique style of cooking, its dishes featuring local vegetables and animal products. In spite of the variations, a traveler in any part of Italy will find that something about Italian cuisine is familiar, and this comforting feeling of familiarity is what makes Italian cuisine a hot favorite in most of the world.
The answers to all the questions I will answer in this preface lie in the following. Not only but also with respect to the 'Burmese' cuisine it is a fatal (but, alas, quite often made) mistake to assume that Burmese and Bamar (Burman) is the same for it is definitely not. Burma is the country and the Bamar are one of the ethnic groups inhabiting Burma. Since the Bamar - also called Burman - constitute the largest ethnic group of this country the British named it after them Burma; and Burma's citizens are Burmese. But not every Burmese is a Bamar. Only members of the Bamar, which is one of Burma's ethnic groups, are Bamar. Subsequently, we have to differentiate between the country Burma, its citizens the Burmese and members of one of the ethnic groups of Burma, the Bamar. This means that there is a Burmese cuisine (the country's cuisine) and a Bamar cuisine (the ethnic group's cuisine) but these two cuisines are not the same. The problem with the original or traditional Bamar cuisine is that no one knows what dishes it comprises. The root problem with this is that no one knows where exactly the Bamar are coming from. If that would be known beyond any reasonable doubt we would also know what their cuisine is.
Chana is often cooked whole for breakfast and is processed into flour (besan). Most Indian curries are fried in vegetable oil. Vegetable oil too, is of different varieties.

Spices form the most important part of the flavor of the Indian cuisine. The most important spices in Indian cuisine are chilli pepper, black mustard seed (rai), cumin (jeera), turmeric, fenugreek, ginger, coriander and asafoetida (hing). Garam masala is a very important spice and is a powder of five or more dried spices, commonly comprised of cardamom, cinnamon and clove. Some commonly used leaves are tejpata (malabathrum), bay leaf, coriander leaf, and mint leaf which adds to the zing of any tasty recipe. The common use of curry leaves is typical of South Indian cuisine. Cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, saffron, and rose petal essences are some exclusive and costly spices usually used in sweet dishes.
