INDIAN FOOD HISTORICAL PERCEPTIVE

Spices have always attracted humans from around over the world and even as early as the time of Christopher Columbus. Today the Indian cuisine is as diverse as the European cuisine; this is because of the four different regional styles of cooking in India. There is the North Indian Cuisine (the regions Benaras, Kashmir, Mughlai, Punjab and Rajasthan); the South Indian cuisines (from regions of Andhra Pradesh, Kannada, Kerala and Tamil Nadu); East Indian cuisine (regions of Assam and Bengal) and Western Cuisine from Gujrat Maharashtra and Goa. East region specialized in their cuisines based regional different in spices and the staples that are dominant in that region.
