Indian cuisine encompasses a wide variety of regional cuisines native to India. Given the range of diversity in soil type, climate and occupations, these cuisines vary significantly from each other and use locally available spices, herbs, vegetables and fruits. Indian food is also heavily influenced by religious and cultural choices and traditions.
The development of these cuisines has been shaped by Dharmic beliefs, and in particular by vegetarianism, which is a growing dietary trend in Indian society.  Traditionally, food in India was considered as a medicine to cure the hungers of the body, mind and the spirit. Ayurveda classifies food according to the attributes of Serenity, Passion and sloth. Largely Indian cuisine, Ayurveda and Yoga are the bench marks of the oldest system of health and well being.
