Indian cuisine is enjoyed and relished all over the world. But India is not just a land of curries, kababs and tandoori chicken! The regional cuisine of India varies from north to south and east to west. This reflects the vast size of the country and its great cultural heritage. The delicacy of mixing an array of spices suitable for a particular climate is the secret ingredient of this vast country. Kashmiri food and Ladakhi food is very different from the food eaten in the costal areas or the desert. The culinary delights of India are inexhaustible!
