We were looking for a destination that could be best explored for its rich cuisines and the first answer that God google had for us was ‘India tours‘. So the next thing we did was to book our India holidays packages for India sightseeing and also trying its richness of cuisines. People say that India tours is incomplete without savouring some of its  famous delicacies like bhappa illish and rossogulla of Kolkata, litti-chokha of Bihar, biryani of Hyderabad, kebabs of Lucknow, chole bhature of Punjab, khandvi of Gujarat, prawns of Goa, vada pao of Mumbai and the list goes on. Indian platter is not just about yummy food but it is a reflection of  5000 years old history of various cultures and customs reaching out to each other and creating a new aroma and seasoning.

It is a balance composition of every flavour correctly blended and assorted. Starting from the starters and ending on a dessert, one finds that no flavour is left off his plate.

Most of India’s tourist places are famous for their history, architecture and also the food stalls around it. For example Bhel puri is famous in Bengal but the bhel puri stall near  Belur Math is devoured by people from all over the world. Similarly beaches of Chowpati are also known for their street-food like paanipuri and kulfi. Golghar in Patna is an architectural beauty but ask any of its visitors, what do  they like the most about Golghar, the first answer will  be the small chat stall set up in the vicinity of the Golghar. Agra is known both for its magnificent Taj Mahal and the scrumptious petha. Talk about any place and there has to be a popular food associated to it. This is the beauty of India sightseeing. You get a complete holiday package where one cannot go empty stomach from any of its tourist places. Thanks to the stalls and shops near these places!

On our jaunt of India tour and travel, we came across different types of cuisines. Interestingly each one of them differed from the other in taste and look. If ever a same dish is found in two different parts of the country, the preparatory method has to be entirely different from each other.

It is fun to see that a simple vegetable can be transformed into so many different delicacies here.  For example the  pointed gourd which is rarely liked by kids, is a typical seasonal vegetable but Indian cuisine is blessed with the culinary art of cooking these gourds in to a hand-licking dessert. It is filled with khoa (dairy product) and dry fruits, hard to imagine when you see a boring looking pointed gourd. And kids guess what? Even the uninteresting pumpkins are magically changed to delicious porridge here, sheer bliss!

The round game that the sweet makers play with flour batter will leave you surprised when you find the golden coloured jalebis coming out of it, dipped in the sugar syrup. Try it once and the taste will be everlasting.

Go to any part of the country and a new flavour welcomes you. My visit to India tourist places reminds me of my grandmother crushing some spices on her palm, then blowing off the dirt and elegantly tossing it into the hot ghee or butter. She would smile and say that Indian cuisine is like tasting a slice of heaven. Granny you were right, Indian cuisine is indeed so!
