INDIAN FOOD: SPICE UP YOUR LIFE 
 
“A picture is worth a thousand words.” Well, look at                   
this picture of a simple Indian lunch I had recently. It                     
is a banana leaf rice with fried fish, vegetables,                 
rasam, and of course my favorite, mutton peratal. It’s                 
“Wow!” to me whenever I have a meal like this.  
 
Eating is an Art 
 
As cooking is an art so is eating. It is not about swallowing some items labelled as food to exist.                                       
It is about a willful selection of what we want to eat, the way to eat it and the sensory enjoyments                                         
and experiences that comes with it. It is partly like making love in which we are immersed and                                   
lost in sights, touch, smells, taste, feelings and orgasms. Very, very seldom do I get a chance to                                   
really enjoy my food. Most of the time it’s a necessity and a rush to kill hunger in between                                     
multiple demands requiring my time and attention.  
 
Spices and Indian Food 
 
Spices have a long history. They have existed even during Old Testament and Egyptian times.                             
they have been utilised as culinary ingredients, preservatives and medicine. They have even been                           
a reason for nations to go to war (Spice Wars) during the 1500s. It was valued on par with gold.                                       
It was only with commonality of obtaining spices did it’s value fall. Spices like turmeric,                             
coriander, cumin, mustard seeds, tamarind, cinnamon, cardamon and red chilli powder are some                         
of the fundamental ingredients in Indian cooking. 
 
Spices and Sensory Experiences 
 
A few of the sensory experiences in terms of colours, flavours and aromas in the use of spices                                   
are tabulated below: 
 
Colours  Flavours  Aromas 
Red  Spiciness  Pungent 
Green  Sweetness  Fruity 
Dark brown  saltiness  Spicy 
Yellow  Bitterness  Musky 
Deep woody tones  Sourness  Sharp and biting

INDIAN FOOD: SPICE UP YOUR LIFE 
 
Eating authentic Indian food is a time of sensory pleasure that culminates with a feeling of                               
satisfaction. And it must be noted that usually after a heavy Indian meal, one would naturally feel                                 
like taking a nap. This could be due to the presences of high Tryptophan, carbohydrates and fats                                 
in Indian cuisine.  
 
When it comes to food, I eat all kinds: Indian, Chinese, Malay, Western, Japanese, Korean etc.                               
But Indian food will always be my first choice. So if you have not eaten Indian food, try it and                                       
spice up your life.

Indian food: spice up your life

  • 1.   INDIAN FOOD: SPICE UP YOUR LIFE    “A picture is worth a thousand words.” Well, look at                    this picture of a simple Indian lunch I had recently. It                      is a banana leaf rice with fried fish, vegetables,                  rasam, and of course my favorite, mutton peratal. It’s                  “Wow!” to me whenever I have a meal like this.     Eating is an Art    As cooking is an art so is eating. It is not about swallowing some items labelled as food to exist.                                        It is about a willful selection of what we want to eat, the way to eat it and the sensory enjoyments                                          and experiences that comes with it. It is partly like making love in which we are immersed and                                    lost in sights, touch, smells, taste, feelings and orgasms. Very, very seldom do I get a chance to                                    really enjoy my food. Most of the time it’s a necessity and a rush to kill hunger in between                                      multiple demands requiring my time and attention.     Spices and Indian Food    Spices have a long history. They have existed even during Old Testament and Egyptian times.                              they have been utilised as culinary ingredients, preservatives and medicine. They have even been                            a reason for nations to go to war (Spice Wars) during the 1500s. It was valued on par with gold.                                        It was only with commonality of obtaining spices did it’s value fall. Spices like turmeric,                              coriander, cumin, mustard seeds, tamarind, cinnamon, cardamon and red chilli powder are some                          of the fundamental ingredients in Indian cooking.    Spices and Sensory Experiences    A few of the sensory experiences in terms of colours, flavours and aromas in the use of spices                                    are tabulated below:    Colours  Flavours  Aromas  Red  Spiciness  Pungent  Green  Sweetness  Fruity  Dark brown  saltiness  Spicy  Yellow  Bitterness  Musky  Deep woody tones  Sourness  Sharp and biting    ©2015 by Thesigan Nadarajan 
  • 2.   INDIAN FOOD: SPICE UP YOUR LIFE    Eating authentic Indian food is a time of sensory pleasure that culminates with a feeling of                                satisfaction. And it must be noted that usually after a heavy Indian meal, one would naturally feel                                  like taking a nap. This could be due to the presences of high Tryptophan, carbohydrates and fats                                  in Indian cuisine.     When it comes to food, I eat all kinds: Indian, Chinese, Malay, Western, Japanese, Korean etc.                                But Indian food will always be my first choice. So if you have not eaten Indian food, try it and                                        spice up your life.    ©2015 by Thesigan Nadarajan
