Tamil - Indian Recipes

Tamil cuisine, developed over many centuries by the Tamil people of southern India and Sri Lanka, is characterized by its aroma and flavor, achieved by a blend and combination of spices, including curry leaves, tamarind, coriander, ginger, garlic, chili, pepper, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, cumin, nutmeg, coconut, and even rosewater. Rice is an important constituent of Tamil cuisine, there are a variety of rice preparations, and food items of rice are available for all the meals of the day. Lentils, too, are consumed extensively, either accompanying rice preparations, or in the form of independent food preparations of lentils. Vegetables and dairy products too are essential accompaniments. Traditionally, vegetarian foods predominate the menu, including a variety of sweets and savories. Tamil cuisine is one of the oldest vegetarian culinary heritages in the world. There are a range of non-vegetarian dishes, including sweet water fish and seafood, cooked with traditional Tamil spices and seasoning. The word 'curry' is actually a Tamil word, derived from 'kari' (meaning sauce).
