What kind of Indian cuisine is better – North Indian or South Indian?

There arrived a foodie-customer in our Indian Restaurant in Terrigal. After diving into the flavours of both northern and southern Indian dishes, he insisted on meeting our chefs.

When he met me, he said, “I have never tasted this kind of food, which I have ordered. I read something on the menu – ‘North-Indian’ and ‘South-Indian’. I wanted to have them because the pictures of these dishes got water in my mouth. On tasting those dishes, I must say that you all are not chefs, rather the Food-Gods. But yes please, tell me the difference between North Indian and South Indian cuisine.”

Here is the extract of how our chefs answered his question:

North-Indian South Indian
Here is what you are going to find in the North Indian region South Indian cuisine is opposite to north Indian cuisine. In north India, breads are staples that are consumed along with vegetables. But in south Indian cuisine, it is the rice only that is served along with the vegetable stew.
Salient Dishes North India is famous for the sundry variations in the breads and the curries. Some of the examples of the most-relished dishes are as follow:

  • Naan Bread
  • Rotis
  • Samosas
  • Palak Paneer
  • Aloo Gobi
The south Indian meal is completely based on the following:

  • Rice
  • Lentils
  • Stews

The most customary items in south Indian cuisine may include the following:

  • Dosa
  • Idli
  • Saaru/Rasam
  • Sambar
Sour Ingredients One of the most prevalent flavours in Indian food is the amazing pinch of sourness. To attain the great sourness, amchoor is used. Tamarind is used in the stews.
Dried Herbs When it is North Indian food, then there are a variety of sauces that incorporate the use of the dried fenugreek leaves. When it is about the dried herbs, then the dried curry leaves are being used as the biggest flavouring agent in the soups or the stews.
Hot Drinks When it is north Indian cuisine, then we are talking about the food that always ends with chai, milk or coffee. In south Indian cuisine, it is the coffee alone that makes the people go wow for it.
Spice Mix Garam Masala Hudi Powder

Final Comments!

No matter whether it is about the south or the north Indian cuisine. Each one of them is popular because of its distinctive taste and aroma. We can’t compare both of these. As the unique things and cuisines can never be compared.

If you have got the water in your mouth and want to dine in on the Indian food, then make sure you are ordering both the north Indian and the south Indian dishes.
