Spices- the soul of Indian foodIndian food is nothing without spices. In fact, a small container with many small partitions filled with different spices in it is a common thing to be found in every kitchen in India. We cannot imagine any flavorsome dish without spices. But at the same time, we all have our own taste and even in a family, each member can have varied tastes.
Apart from the taste, these spices also amplify the aroma and the look of the food. If I add only green chili in the dal tadka, it gives the boring yellow look, but when I add a pinch of red chili powder along with green chili and then garnish it with chopped coriander leaves, it looks complete. The result of added spices varies depending upon the way you add them and the step when you add. Yesterday only I got to know that the flavour of cinnamon stick and grounded cinnamon varies in a dish.
Share your thoughts and experiences on the same. Not only females but male chefs are also welcome to post their comments. In fact, the food consumers are the best to comment on the same as they can notice the change in taste.
