This ground-breaking guide makes the tremendous diversity of Indian cuisine—including the bewildering variety of ingredients and dishes—manageable. There is no national dish or cuisine of India, yet a large portion of the foodways on the subcontinent share common ingredients, recipes, and cooking methods.
There are typical approaches to thinking about food as well. The comprehensive overview presented here includes several states that earlier food writers neglected. Here, students may supplement their nation studies with a wealth of cultural information, and foodies can learn novel viewpoints. The subjects discussed include the limitations imposed by various religions and castes as well as the differences between the northern food, which is based on wheat, and the southern cuisine, which is based on rice.
