The cuisine of the Indian sub-continent is made up of different subtle tastes and flavours, it is as varied as the climates and the people, with their distinct cultures and traditions, within this vast land.
Curry is at the heart of all the different cuisines, but there are clear variations among the many regions. For example, the Bangladeshis have a preference for fish dishes with rich sauces served with rice, whereas in South India and Pakistan, the preference is for spicier meat dishes accompanied by bread and chapattis.
