Even though, India shows an amalgamated culture, still there are countless cultural differences in diverse parts of nation. These dissimilarities are simply evident in customs, festivals and undoubtedly the food. There is an absolute dissimilarity between food consumed and this fact, to some extent can be linked to the variation in spices and crops cultivated in the two regions, north and south India.

Wheat is the chief crop grown in North India and rice is the major crop of South. There are diverse sorts of spices grown in the country, coconut is used mainly by South Indians in the preparation of recipes and chutneys to go with rice. North cuisine is influenced most especially by the Mughal era and Mughlai food is one of their specialties.

North Indians are accustomed to of both vegetarian and non vegetarian food, whereas South Indians are reliant more on rice, vegetables as well as seafood, because of being near to sea. The dishes in North are filled of onions, garlic, tomatoes and ginger, which can be taken as the Arabic and Persian influence.

South Indian cuisine, in comparison is much in good health and the dishes are packed of coconuts, because of the large quantity of the fruit produced in that area. People in south are generally vegetarian with chicken and mutton seldom consumed, although they eagerly eat seafood.

The well-known south Indian recipes are dosa, idli, sambar, vada, and uthappam. Rasam, which is tamarind dal, is an all the rage dish. This cuisine is distinguished by its nourishment, aroma, taste, color, flavor and visual appeal. Curries in South are soupier as compared to North.
