our culinary tradition


    Indians eat varies by region. Spices are used in many Indian dishes. When it is hot, spices such as chili peppers and garlic help the body sweat and cool it down. In colder weather, spices such as cloves, cinnamon, ginger, black pepper, cardamom, and nutmeg help warm the body.


    Every holiday requires a feast. Feast starts with the sweet ingredients used such as besan (chickpea flour), paneer (a white cheese), rose water, almonds, and sugars.


    This tradition has its roots in Ayurveda. Eating is supposed to be a sensory experience and eating with your hands evokes emotion and passion.
    Eating with your fingers helps in bringing forth digestive juices in the stomach. The nerve endings on your fingertips are known to stimulate digestion.
