Beyond Curries - A New Beginning

'Beyond Curries' as the name suggests is an attempt by a team of bloggers to introduce the world to Indian cuisine in all its variety and flavors. To a 'Non-Indian' the Indian culinary tour seems to start and end with 'curries'. We will be bringing more fare to change that view.

Indian cuisine is diverse as the sub-continent embraces a number of diverse ethinicities living in harmony. India is characterized by varied climatic conditions, various religious sects and has embraced people from other parts of the world since time immemorial. Each group/region has influenced cooking in many ways right from the choice of ingredients to the techniques of cooking. Thus we have Palakkad, Kashmiri, Maharashtrian, Konkan, North-Eastern, Gujarati, Parsi, Marwadi, Bengali, Andhra and Lucknowi cuisines to name a few, each having its own unique taste and variety.

We - Alka @ Sindhi Rasoi, Madhuram @ Eggless Cooking, Nags @ Edible Garden, Sailu @ Sailu's Kitchen, Sia @ Monsoon Spice, Srivalli @ Cooking 4 all Seasons, Trupti @ The Spice Who Loved Me, Vani @ Mysoorean, Viji @ Vcuisine (Private blog) and I - endeavour to showcase Indian cuisine from various regions under one roof bringing you the nitty-gritties of basic Indian delicacies alongwith the exotic.
