Indian Cuisine...




Indian cuisine is an absolute treat. If I had to find one word to describe it, I would say spices or marsala in Hindi. In traditional Indian cooking, the mixing of the spice blend is probably the most important part of food preparation. It is an art, to mix just the right blend of ingredients to suit the particular food you are cooking. Yesterday, a trip to the grocery store allowed me to pick up a few spice mixes that I can take home. Dinner last night at a local woman’s home allowed our group to taste food as it is home-prepared for guests.

Above, you can see the spices at the store, bread being baked at a street vendor's stall, and an amazing yogurt served with dinner last night.

Susan, these images are beautiful. Thank you for sharing. Tell us about the textures you see; not only the fabrics but the the texture of the architecture and foods. Edie

hi Edie...

I will! Just love texture, although color speaks louder than texture in this country.

More to come.
