Indian cuisine is ancient, diverse with different ethnic influences, much like the country itself. India’s unique blend of cuisines has evolved across the centuries, during the sixteenth century while the Arab and Portuguese traders have enriched by introducing new foods like potato, tomato, avocado, groundnuts, cashew, capsicum and chilli in all forms, the Europeans cooking styles during the colonial period have added to the diversity of Indian cuisine
India is known for its love for food and spices. The right flavour and taste of Indian cuisine relies truly on the spices in which it is cooked. Spices have always been considered to be India’s prime commodity. Most of the spices (such as Ginger, Turmeric, Garlic, Cardamom, cloves, asafoetida) used in the Indian food have been used for their medical properties besides the flavour and taste it brings to the dishes. At Ashoka, handpicked selections of spices are flown regularly from India.
