HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!
The Essence of Indian Cusine are Spices. India as whole celebrates Unity in diversity. Indian Cusine is a good example for our unity in diversity. Every region and/or state in India has different food. But the spices used for all kinds of food are essentially the same.
On this special occasion of Indian Independence day I have displayed some of the whole spices, powders and ingredients used for basic Indian cooking like dal and rice which is a staple. I came across this wonderful web site which mentions about different Spices Grown in each state. It also gives the information that India produces 3.2 billion tones spices and have pictures and information about of each spice. Check this link IndianSpices.com .
