THE AROMATIC RICHNESS OF...INDIAN CUISINE

Known as the world’s greatest exporter of spices, India’s food is rich with the warmth of treasured and complex flavours that have been lovingly passed down in families for generations. While dishes vary from Northern to South Indian culture, spices and rice are the way of life, which creates the strong aromatic flavours together with the vibrant colours.

TASTE OF INDIA

Rice is such an important part of Indian cuisine and has its place in the culture too. Be it a morsel of kheer (rice pudding), boiled rice being fed as a child’s first solid food or uncooked rice grains applied to foreheads with sandalwood paste to form a ‘tilak’, a burning symbol of the soul’s energy.

DID YOU KNOW?

70% of the world’s spices come from India where there are more than 60 varieties grown in different regions.


 ‘Namaste’ is the most common daily greeting and it can be used at any time of day with anyone to say both ‘hello’ and ‘goodbye’.

THE SIGNATURE FLAVOUR OF THE INDIAN CUISINE

Green Cardamom

Floral, spicy, and sweet, Green Cardamom is a signature flavour that can be detected in a host of sweet and savoury Indian dishes. An essential for fragrant curries and puddings alike.
