India is one of the few places in the world where meats have always been treated as an occasional delicacy in the average household rather than a daily staple. Besides, there are countless households that never cook meats, and never miss them either. Whether you are in the plains of Western and Central India, the coastal regions of Southern India or the mountains up north, you will get to sample an array of vegetarian dishes that make a complete meal with either rice or local breads.
What’s even more exciting is that every region of this large country has its own cuisine, with its own herbs and spices and styles of cooking. Consequently, there are 20 or more ways of cooking each of these items that you may have heard of but given little thought to before: lentils and beans, potatoes, brinjal, spinach and Indian cottage cheese (paneer), just to name a few.
The cooking is surprisingly simple at times, apart from being versatile, wholesome and nutritious and a lot of fun! Once you begin exploring and experimenting, there will be no end. So, if you thought that good health did not go so well with variety and good taste, join us and be prepared to prove yourself wrong!
