All the people in the world have their special food, which is passed
from generation to generation and is highly appreciated.
Romanian traditional food is
not very healthy but it is tasty.
Healthy food is that which
contains vitamins and does not
affect our body. I like to eat
cereals, dairy products, fish,
chicken, vegetables and fruits.
Fast food is not healthy but we
can eat it from time to time.
• Romanian traditional food uses much meat. Cabbage rolls,
sausages, and stews (like tocanita) are popular main dishes.
You can also sample traditional Romanian fish dishes, like
the salty, grilled carp called saramura.
• Romanian Traditional Food
• - Soups and Appetizers and Side Dishes in Romania:
• Soup – is made with or without meat, or made with fish - is
usually offered on menus at Romanian restaurants. Zama is
a green bean soup with chicken, parsley, and dill. You may
also encounter pilaf and moussaka, vegetables prepared in
various ways (including stuffed peppers), and polenta, a
kind of “porridge” made of maize.
• Romanian Traditional Foods - Desserts of Romanian Cuisine:
• Traditional Romanian desserts may resemble baklava. Other
pastries may best be described as danishes (pastries with
cheese filling). Crepes with various fillings and toppings may
also be on the typical Romanian dessert menu.

Hi, my name is Christina
Sharon. I live in New Delhi, the
capital of India. I study in ninth
grade in St. Mark’s Sr. Sec.

friends. My hobbies include
singing, reading books and
surfing the internet. Now I
would like to share my views on
the Indian Cuisine.
Cuisines of India
• Indian Cuisine is becoming the most famous cuisine all around the
world. Cuisine in India is so diverse and full of variety and taste that
it requires a life span to quench your lust for Indian food delicacies.
The North Indian Cuisine, South Indian Cuisine, East and West Indian
Cuisine, has nurtured there own culinary tastes using different
combination of spices. Rich and diverse Indian cuisine is simply
irresistible and sumptuous, Indian dishes are any food critic's
• All those who think Indian cuisine begins and ends with curry,
get ready for a big surprise. The character of cuisine in India is
essentially regional; reasons for this must be found in the sheer size
of the country which forced every area to develop a style of cooking
of its own. In times gone by, transportation was a problem, and this
meant that each area had to come up with a style of food which
made do with the locally available materials. As a result, not only
dishes, but flavors, colors, methods of cooking, down to even the
style of cutting the vegetables prior to be cooked changes as often
as the landscape does.

What has helped along this diversity is the
amazing number of religions and the sects
and sub-sects within them; each of them
often have strict dietary codes. For
example, Hindu Brahmins may not eat
onions, ginger and garlic, meat which
meant that a special cuisine came up
around that bias and so on. Whereas
Christians and Muslims favors meat
The most striking contrast in eating habits
shows up between the meat-and-bread
eating northern regions and the pulse-
and-rice southern regions.
Northern Indian Cuisine
• Famous North Indian Cuisine has become an important part of international
cuisine, extending through the world's metropolitan centers and into the
food cultures of many countries. Northern Indian cuisine is more favorite for
its specialized Mughali dishes and famous vegetarian delicacies.
• The food from North India traces its descent from Persian ancestors who
started filtering in India from the 11th century A.D. onwards and then more
definitely from the 16thcentury A.D., when the Mughals came to power. The
Mughals brought with them Persian and Afghan cooks who started North
Indians on the rich and fragrant Persian rice dishes, such as pilafs and
biryanis (meat-based pilafs). Garnished with pounded silver (vark), these
dishes along with spicy kormas (braised meat in creamy sauces), koftas
(grilled spicy meatballs) and kababs used to grace the tables of emperors.
Even today, these dishes are cooked and eaten all over north India. You can
sample excellent Mughlai cuisine in New Delhi.
Southern India Cuisine
• Indian cuisine is more favorite for its specialized Mughali dishes and famous
vegetarian delicacies. Southern India cuisine is full of mouth watering
delicacies, the very mentioning of the name of South Indian cuisine, brings
to ones mind the tastes of Idlis, dosas, Sambhar and Vada. Southern India
cuisine is much more than this that can really a lavish treat for you taste
buds. South India vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes have a generous
blend of spices and coconuts not to be missed in any way on your South
India vacation tours.
• Rice is served everywhere and always in south India and flour-based breads
are rare, if at all. Rice is used to polish off the very spicy curries of the south,
which are in a more liquid manner than those of the north. These curries
are often pulse-based and if this sounds restricting, you'll be surprised at
what a few spices here and there can do to completely change the taste of
The south Indians put chillies, mustard, coconut oil and various other spicy
seeds to very effective use to conjure up mouthwatering dishes like dosas
(rice pancakes stuffed with potatoes and vegetables), idlis (rice dumplings
served with sambar), and so on.

Western India Cuisine
• The food of India offers a staggering range of dishes to
the gourmet with an adventurous palate.
• The original cuisine of western India is principally
vegetarian. This is largely due to the enterprising, but
strictly vegetarian, Marwari community from
Rajasthan, who have now spread all over the country.
Wherever they went, so did their food of course.
The Marwari cuisine is a good example of how the best
was made of locally available stuff. It is spicy and
extremely rich with almost everything being doused in
ounces of ghee (clarified butter). This was to make up
for the lack of variety in materials available in the
spartan desert surroundings that they lived
Indian Food Delicacies With The
Warmth of Festivals
• There's a festival to every
working day in India. Two
things which come as a
package deal with every
festival are new clothes and –
you guessed it – food. Almost
every festival in India has a
special dish, or dishes, as the
case may be, associated with
it. Traditionally famous Indian
food is cooked at home, and in
huge amounts because all
festivals are open houses in
Herbs and Spices in India
• A lot of care and thought
goes into the preparation of
every Indian dish. A study
into their recipes reveals a
lot of surprises. Every single
ingredient of the dish is there
with a purpose and
compliments each other. In
fact, the succession of dishes
also keeps in mind the flavor
and 'nature' of the spices,
whether hot or cool
The Use of Spices and Herbs
• Spices and herbs used in Indian cooking
are either fresh or dried – in which case
the flavor changes for each form. However,
that is not all: the dried spices and herbs
are used in various ways. They can be used
whole or grounded (more often than not
still pounded at home!) and they may be
roasted, fried, deep-fried, half-done, well-
done … all according to the taste that the
cook wants to give to the eventual dish.
The word Tikka means bits, pieces or
chunks. Chicken Tikka is an easy-to-cook
dish in which chicken chunks are
marinated in special spices and then
grilled on skewers. This is one of India's
most popular dishes. Chicken Tikka can
also be made into Chicken Tikka Masala, a
tasty gravy dish.
• Grind the chopped coriander (keep some
aside for garnishing) and all other
marinade ingredients (except yoghurt) to
a smooth paste in a food processor.
