Taste Of The Tropics - Authentic Indian Platter

We are so grateful and excited to guest host our next blog event. We would like to thank Chef Mireille for this great opportunity. For the month of October, We are guest hosting Chef Mireille’s Taste of the Tropics event with the theme of Authentic Indian Platter.



    Why we choose India?
    India - first thing comes to mind is its diversity.
    A large country with the population over 1.2 billion and is divided into four regions as North India, South India , East India and West India. Each region is again divided with many states in it. There are 28 states and 7 union territories. Each state has its own native cuisine. Many variety of foods are prepared based on cultivation and food grocery. It is very much influenced based on religious  and cultural choices.

    We really love the use of numerous spices and flavor to give aroma.   In general Indians take their food seriously and every mother starts caring about their family deit and health. They even start to teach traditional cooking to their daughters in early to carry for future generation.

    Learning cuisines of all over India is not possible in short spam as we need years of patience since it is vast like a sky and deeper like a ocean. But we can try to bring one recipe from each state which will satisfy us that we got to know about Regional cuisine of India. We wish to learn and bring out basic authentic traditional delicacy from each of these state. So we thought this is not possible without  your support and contribution. Lets join together and contribute recipes from each region with its original touch and flavor. This will greatly spread our Indian Food world wide.
