Modern Indian Cooking and Variations of Its Speciality
Posted by Mark Sheldon on March 3rd, 2017
Today, the world has turned into a global village. Technology has improved to unbelievable extent, making accessibility to any part of the world easier than ever. Moreover, economic globalisation has contributed with its part in making people move out of their homes for various reasons. Thus, wherever one goes, it is very easy to find people from different nations. All these factors have played their parts in making a market for local cuisines across every corner of the globe.
In this drastically changed circumstance, finding an Indian restaurant in Prague, Honolulu or Vancouver is no more a dream. As such, the NRAI or National Restaurant Association of India has been predicting such possibility for over a decade. These fine eateries are not only frequented by occasional tourists from the country or NRIs (non resident Indians), but also by foreigners from different cultures and food habits.
Modern Indian cooking
Indian cuisine is much different both in terms of taste and preparation. Modern Indian cuisine perfectly reflects the punch of different cultures from surrounding regions and ages. Actually, Indian foods can broadly be categorised into two sections, north and south Indian varieties. There are many sub categories in each of these two sections and both the styles of cooking make generous use of spices. Usage of spices in India dates back to several thousands of years. It is important to note that each spice used in Indian cuisine has some nutritional value or the other and these facts were known to our ancestors thousands of years ago.
Modern Indian cooking is greatly influenced by Iran or Persia. Even arrival of Islam in India contributed heavily in shaping up modern Indian cuisine. Various Mughlai dishes are exceptionally popular, among both vegetarians and non vegetarians throughout the length and breadth of the country.
Some important cuisine styles in the country
