Few years ago, I wrote in this blog that India is the land of highest number of food items. It was part of my Deepavali Research article (the talk I gave at Harrow Desis Diwali Festival). I counted over 160 sweet items/dishes. I gave the proof for my research as well. Every week I used to go to Willesden Green Library in London and visit the cookery section. The shelf on cookery books had more books on Indian cookery than any other country. When I did some statistical research through the index of many country’s cookery books, I arrived at the conclusion that INDIA HAS THE LARGEST NUMBER OF FOOD ITEMS IN THE WORLD. Every state, even every big city, has its own speciality.

Recently (July 10 and 11, 2019) I went to Bangalore to attend a wedding. On two days I counted over 60 items, leave alone the desserts. Some mouth- watering dishes are pictured here (all pictures are taken with my poor I pad)—
