"Indian cuisine is characterized by the abundant use of herbs, spices, vegetables and sometimes locally grown fruits. There is a wide practice of vegetarianism across many sections of Indian society. Every genre of Indian cuisine is identified by an assortment of unique dishes and cooking techniques. Consequently, the food differs from region to region, reflecting the varied demographics of the ethnically diverse Indian subcontinent. However, my culinary focus is the flavorsome cuisine from northern India," commented Mohan.
"With years of experience working in New Delhi, which is renowned for its distinctive food delicacies, I must say my specialty is in northern cuisine including galouti kebab, dum ka murgh and nalli nihari. North Indian cuisine is distinguished by the proportionally high use of dairy products such as milk. A griddle is used to bake flat breads like roti, paratha, and kulcha while main courses including tandoori chicken are cooked slowly in a tandoor. The staple food of northern India is a nutritious combination of lentils, vegetables and roti (wheat based bread). But the varieties used and the method of preparation can vary from place to place," he continued.
