India is the birthplace of many culinary traditions. This is due to the fact of the mix of different cultures, religions and traditions. Indian cuisine is very diverse in terms of taste, color and aroma. It largely uses vegetarian and vegan products, which are skillfully combined with various spices to prepare a wealth of dishes. Much of the impact on Indian cuisine was exerted by followers of different religions and nationalities who settled in the lands of India. For example, Muslims introduced mutton and lamb, Portuguese – potatoes, and the English, the habit of drinking tea, a wonderful, aromatic drink called-‘Chai’.
The diversity of Indian cuisine satisfies the tastes of anyone looking for a new culinary experience.

Then the main courses are served hot with viscous sauces, for example, Curry or balti vindalu. What will be the main dish depends on the region of India, where it is served. However, in many places in India, sauces are served with rice and a variety of breads naan, chapati or roti, replacing the cutlery. There is nothing yummier than hot and crispy breads dipped in an aromatic sauce. The meal may also consist of several main dishes, then each is received on a plate with such dishes, which is called – thali.
