I really enjoy eating Indian food, and there are many different regions that offer a variety of flavors.
I have never traveled to India, nor have I ever cooked in an Indian restaurant but, I love spices.
I devote one cupboard in my kitchen strictly for them.
When you cook with spices I find its better to add them with the oil and heat them up, that allows the spice a chance to release the oils, giving a much better flavor.
My influence here is mostly me playing with spices and watching you tube videos. Its kid approved, so it must be good:)
