People Make a Beeline to Eat Indian Vegetarian Food With advancements and innovations happening in each field of life, it is no wonder then that even the field of food and cuisines has been progressing at a rapid state since a few years now. Thanks to fast spreading globalization and the advent of the internet age, people have gotten closer and the world has become a smaller place. Thus ideas are being shared more rampantly than ever before and at a fast rate that too. Ideas about food are being shared at a high rate through cookery shows, cook books, food blogs and even Instagram. Everyone loves something or the other about the traditional food of wherever they reside.

There is something very comforting about travelling all around the world or tasting cuisines from all around the globe but returning home to your good old traditional food. Indian especially, are very sentimental and emotional creatures who love their motherland and most things attached to it. Thus they love the cuisine of their region. Unlike other countries however, which have probably 4 cuisines at the max, India is a subcontinent which is a mixture of many cuisines and hence it is difficult for anyone in the world to classify any one regional food cuisine of India in the whole bracket of Indian cuisine.

You have different cuisines from the north say chhole bhature and daal bhaati churma then you have dhoklas and wada pavs or pav bhaji in the west. The eastern part of the nation is mostly known for its momos and sweet dishes such as rasmalai and rogolla while the Southern part is often eaten as breakfast in the form of dishes such as idli sambar, dosas and vadas. The beauty of Indian vegetarian food has now become a worldwide phenomenon and the authentic taste of the motherland is being relished by people all over the world.

After Chinese and American cuisine, the cuisine of our country is probably the most popular in the world what with even western celebrities vouching for the greatness of Indian vegetarian food. The reason why it is so well loved around the world and is also quite nutritious is because till recently, women of the house would be full time cooks who would make meals an elaborate process. The job of a housewife was more strenuous than that of a working man as there would be no end to being in the kitchen.

The joint family system meant that breakfast, snacks, lunch and dinner would have to be prepared in huge quantities and due to the lack of modern tools such as blenders, grinders, stoves or even chimneys, women would start the whole process of mixing and making spices from the scratch. It is not an easy task by any means to prepare the traditional food of our country. While people still go gaga over ‘maa ke haath ka khaana’, a thought ought to be spared for expecting the same old taste from our mothers as it is really not possible or feasible for females to be expected to spend their lives in kitchens anymore.
