Koch Shankar: South-indian kitchen

Three thousand years ago vegetarianism started to become the preferred way to eat and live in South India. Now, millions of people not just in India but arond the world are turning towards becoming vegetarians. In India, the tradition and culture started when people where influenced by various religions and cultures such as 'Hinduisim' which is more of a philosophy than a religion, Buddhism, Jainism and so on. The basic idea being 'non hurting of life'. The idea of maintaining a healthy diet and to eat to keep the body not just strong and healthy, but also to keep the mind and body physically and mentally fit so that one can aspire towards a spiritual disposition.

Carefully selected spices and seasonings are used in daily meals. Ancient Indian traditions of Ayurvedic medicines are included such as selected spices and herbs for medicinal properties. For example: Turmeric as an antiseptic, Asafetida as a digestive which also combats flatulence is used along with pulses such as beans and lentils,garlic used for circulatory ailments,coriander and tamarind for constipation,cloves for toning the heart, black pepper for energy to new mothers and so on.

Distinct techniques of combining spices and herbs that were grown locally are used using simple methods of natural fermentation of staples such as rice and lentils without the use of any additonal yeasts. Age old techniques of grinding, pounding, fermenting, steaming, sauteeing, frying and combining balanced foods that are theraupeutical with medicinal properties are applied to the best effect.

The trading of spices such as cinnamon, cloves, pepper, cardamom, ginger etc, spread worldwide due to Roman, Syrians, Arab, Chinese, Portuguese, Danish, French, English, Persian, Greek traders, and also through South Indian merchants such as the Chettiars who did brisk business with Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia and China (14th century BC) which is reflected in the cuisine of these countries.

South Indian cuisine is not a homogenous cuisine but reflects the diverse cultures and flavour preferences that celebrates life itself which is not just sweet, but includes salty, sour, hot, bitter etc. in various subtle combinations that immediately delight the senses and the body with highly nutritional value.
