The Best Indian Restaurants in Montreal
The Best Indian Restaurants in Montreal : our suggestions
India is a huge country – the seventh largest in the world, and it is home to the second highest population in the world. And given the country’s history, regional makeup and traditions, India’s extraordinary gastronomic offerings are a beacon for foodies who are looking for flavors, aromas and textures of the most wonderful kind. Religion and culture also play an important role as does geography (ie. different climates = different crops = different dishes). The popular cuisine from Northern India tends to be more vegetarian, and includes dairy products, lentils, potatoes, cauliflower and tandoori specialities. Head to the southern regions, and the dishes will have aromatic sauces, be served with bread or rice, and include more meat (pork, goat, beef) and poultry. In Central India, you will find a cuisine that combine various culinary traditions of the country. Overall, the one common thread in every dish are the spices (watch out for the heat levels!), with aromas and flavours that arouse our senses but the vibrant colors also pull you in to the world of Indian culinary delights.
Characterized by the diversity of the ingredients, this could help explain the many different reasons why dining on Indian cuisine is so enjoyable. Yes, there is a vast variety of choices but it is also a healthy cuisine for both carnivores and vegetarians.
