The hospitality of Indians is legendary: the dictum of hospitality lies in three famous Sanskrit words "Attithi Devo Bhavah" or "the guest is truly your god". Indians believe that they are honored if they share their meals with guests. The finest of India's cuisines is as rich and diverse BS its civilization. It is an art form that has been passed on through generations purely by word of mouth, from guru (teacher) to vidhyarthi (pupil) or from mother to daughter. Only one place on the map incorporates... this riot of sensory stimulation in its meals: India. In fact, the intensive use of spices be it whole, ground, roasted or stewed marks the unifying characteristic of an otherwise highly diverse cuisine.

Regional influences range from climate and elevation to history and religion hence they define the culinary differences which is not surprising considering Indiais a country occupying an area of 1,216,295 square miles with over 1 billion people embracing 100 different languages, cradling thousands of art forms and cultures and a million Gods, India has always welcomed new influences and among the art forms so influenced is the ancient art of Indian cooking, evolving and absorbing constantly.
