Fine Indian Food
Indian Vegetarian Food – a Taste of Tradition!
There are many reasons for adopting a vegetarian diet. Some people oppose eating meat because of their respect for sentient life. This can be a result of religious beliefs or respect for animal rights. Others adopt vegetarianism for health, political or economic reasons or simply for personal preference.
The earliest records of vegetarianism come from the 7th Century BCE Indus Valley Civilisation, based around the Indus River which flowed through northwest India and eastern Pakistan. The Indus Valley Civilisation was acknowledged as one of the three major ancient civilisations, alongside Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia.
Vegetarianism has long been associated with Indian food. This is partly for religious reasons and partly economic. Hinduism and Sikhism both promote vegetarianism to a certain degree, although not exclusively, and the poverty of much of the country severely restricts the availability of meat for many at realistic prices.
