Here at Taste of India we cook various styles of food. We specialize in Northern cooking, which is characterized by its thick gravies. Each gravy has it’s unique blend of spices. Most commonly used spices are Haldi (Tumeric Powder), different types of chilies, garam masala, saffron, milk, homemade yogurt, paneer (homemade cottage cheese) Ghee (clarified butter) and numerous types of nuts. Some of the Indian spices are used as home medicine. Such as tumeric powder combined with pure honey is used in many households to suppress common colds. Ajwin and jeera is used when one has an upset stomach, and to help the digestive system. These are a few examples of how Indian spices are used in cooking and as medicine in many households.
