Welcome to the fascinating world of Indian cuisine. The ancient and venerable style of cookery has existed for thousands of years. Long before the current popularity in gourmet, natural and healthy cooking, the Indian sub-continent has developed an entire popular cuisine based on natural ingredients combined with intricate combinations. The thousand year-old style of vegetarian cuisine was artfully blended by the invaders of India who brought their non-vegetarian cuisine. The Mughals, Mongols, English, Portuguese or court cuisine made huge contributions like kababs, stews and peri-peri. Now in modern times the Chinese cuisine is also being married with Indian foods like Chicken 65. South India has a unique vegetarian cuisine with lot of fresh coconut and curry leaves.
