The Indian cuisine
The Indian cuisine is one of the most varied in the world. It is also called the land of vegetarians. Hindu people do not eat beef because of their religion, Muslims do not eat pork and many Buddhists are vegetarians. Also many Indians cannot afford meat at all, for most it is a luxury good. Therefore, many Indians resort to substitutes, such as rice, pulses and wheat, which are the staple foods for Indians.
From the north come mainly hearty meat dishes with lamb, goat or chicken. They are often seasoned with cumin and saffron. Many nuts and dairy products are also used. Flat bread is often served as a side dish.
The west Indian cuisine is the most varied in the whole of India due to its population structure. Especially pork dishes or vegetarian dishes as well as legumes are very popular. In addition to rice, millet is also often offered as a side dish.
