The origins and basis of Indian Cuisine lie with the ancient Indian civilization of India that was called Harappa and Mohenjodaro.   The Dravidians or inhabitants of these civilization were urban and not agrarian.   They had huge granaries to store grain, houses with a drainage system, pathways or roads and public baths.  They sowed the seeds of Ayurveda, or Life Sciences, which is the foundation of Indian cuisine. This system was derived after studying the physical needs, mental needs and needs of our psychology and spirituality.

One of the greatest influences on India’s cuisine occurred in the 2nd century B.C. The powerful and turned benevolent Emperor Ashoka of that time popularized a vegetarian cuisine. Even today a majority of Indians are vegetarian.
The two other individuals that helped make India vegetarian are Mahavir and Buddha. (Also the ancient, urban Dravidian civilization may have been vegetarian.)Ashoka was also the first statesman in recorded history that had an environmental department in his administration. This department set environmental laws, posted these laws on stone billboards and had an environmental enforcement program.

A Special Mention on Indian Cuisine

Note : Even today I believe that the Idli/Sambar and Dosa which is the staple food of South India (where there is a concentration of Dravidians) is one of the most intellectual and also tasty cuisine that man could devise. Parboiled rice (helps preserve vitamins unlike polished rice) and dal (lentils) are taken in the right combinations and then fermented and steamed to deliver a profoundly nutritious, balanced and tasty meal. This cuisine is ultra light on the earth’s resources and on the digestive system and hence a true health and wellness meal for both the environment and the individual. - Kavita
