The hospitality of the Indians is legendary.
We have made every effort to live up to our original dictum of hospitality quoted below:
In Sanskrit Literature the three famous words 'Atithi Devo Bhava' or 'the guest is truly our god' are a dictum of hospitality in India. Indians believe that they are honoured if they share their mealtimes with guests. Even the poorest look forward to guests and are willing to share their meagre food with guest. And of particular importance is the Indian host's pride that they will not let a guest go away un-fed or unhappy. Indians are known for their incredible ability to serve food to their guests invited or uninvited.
Indian civilization is more than 6000 years old and is the largest democracy in the world. It is the second most populated (over 1 billion) the seventh largest country of the world. It is about 1/3rd the size of United States and lies in the South Asian Sub-continent.
Indian food has evolved over centuries and has flourished under the many rulers that India had. Chefs vied with one another to create exotic delicacies for their rajahs (kings). The result is centuries of patronage to the art of cooking and a large repertoire of delicious recipes.
Indian cuisine is gaining popularity around the globe. It is very tasty and its mainstay is whole grains, lentils (legume), vegetables and pulses, which is what people want today. Indian food provides excellent variety of vegetarian food containing complete proteins as well as choice of healthy non-vegetarian dishes made from chicken, lamb and seafood. Traditional Indian food does not contain beef and pork. A sparse amount of Indian food provides ideal amount of needed proteins and vitamins and it also has the health promoting properties of various herbs, garlic, ginger and spices. Yogurt, an accompaniment to Indian meals introduces good flora (acidophilus) into the digestive system. Many of our menus are vegetarian, which tend to be more alkaline than non-vegetarian menus. Fresh fruit follows Indian meals, which also contributes to an alkaline balance. Cuisine is vast and the following are interesting aspects of the cuisine.
