Cooking Tourism in India


Indian culinary has always been a favorite worldwide. Judicious and proportional use of spice, makes Indian food so tasty that you will find it difficult to forget the delightful taste of an Indian buffet party. Under the broad generic term of Indian cuisine, the Indian foods actually include a variety of delicacies that can be found in some particular parts of the country. Depending on the local climatic and social conditions, the food habits largely differ from region to region. A cooking tour throughout India will help you to explore different gastronomic experiences across the country. The two pillars of Indian cuisine are the use of varieties of spices and extensive use of vegetables. The exact amount of spices is the secret behind the required taste of a particular dish.

 

It is amazing how climate and landscape affects eating habits of the people. In North India, the climate is continental and the people here are habituated to quite rich and heavy food. The food is extremely spicy and the diet comprises of a lot of vegetables. In the arid areas of Rajasthan and Gujarat, a great variety of pulses (dals) and preserved pickles (achars) are used to substitute the lack of fresh vegetables and fruits. In the coastal states of West Bengal and Kerala lots of fishes are consumed. You can also taste a variety of meat preparation.

 

In India, food is not merely a means of sustenance. Culinary skills are respected as a form of art. The method of preparation of many Indian dishes are so elaborate that it often takes an entire day cutting vegetables, pounding spices on a stone or just sitting patiently by the fire for hours on end. On the other hand, there are simple dishes, which are ideal for daily consumption. Only on landing in India, can a foreigner experience the true flavor of Indian cuisine. It would definitely be an experience of lifetime to explore this country of infinite diversity with your taste buds.
