Though vegetarian dishes featuring rice and a variety of beans dominate Indian cuisine, India's cooking has also been influenced by traders such as the Arabs and Chinese, and invaders such as the Persians, Mongols, Turks, British and Portuguese. North Indian food features more dairy and pulses, while South Indian cooking includes more rice, curries, and fruits like coconut.

A Continent of Flavors

The cuisine of India can hardly be done justice in a few paragraphs. Distinct cooking styles exist as a result of differences in India's vast geography, climate, and culture.

India's area covers approximately 1/3 the size of the United States! The cuisines from countries that border India are vastly different as well: China, Pakistan, and Nepal to name a few.
