By Petrina Verma Sarkar:
Several lifetimes are not enough to discover and sample all the delights of Indian cuisine! It is the glorious result of thousands of years of evolution and assimilation! Like all things Indian, it has absorbed various influences from other cultures but managed to make them uniquely its own. It is exotic, sometimes complex and always delicious! Love Indian food or just curious about it? This is the place to be no matter what your level of interest or experience. Join me as we explore the delectable depths of Indian cuisine!
