  3. BBQ and Tandoor

    The slow heat of the clay oven allows the spices and marinade to sink deeply into the marinated food as it is cooked, giving these barbequed snacks a distinctive aroma and a truly wonderful taste.

  4. South Indian

    Northern Indian cuisine is well-known all over the world, but the cooking of South India is also not to be missed. Influenced by the climate, the availability of different ingredients, and the fact that many people from southern India are strictly vegetarian for religious reasons, southern Indian cuisine has a very different taste to food from other parts of the India.
