Indian Rice Dishes- Specialties of the Home Grown

Rice is the staple food of not only India but of more than half of the countries of the world. India, according to the experts, has been growing rice for last 5000 years. Soil of the large part of the country is fertile, alluvial and marshy which favors cultivation of rice. Staple food for this part of the country is mostly rice. Naturally, neither can you keep rice away from an Indian nor an Indian away from rice.

Rice, in fact, is synonymous with a hearty meal for many. But getting delicious restaurant rice dish for an Indian vegetarian foodie is really difficult in a foreign country because both the Indians and the native patrons go gaga over non vegetarian rice dishes.
