    So sorry for the delay.

    Sarson Bhara Kekda (Shrimp With Mustard) (481901) by Chocolati is typical of dishes from the Bengali region. Their cuisine emphasizes fish, vegetables and lentils and is known for its subtle, yet sometimes fiery, flavors. The trump card of Bengali cooking is the addition of whole spices (mustard seeds, etc.) and their mustard pastes and oils. Mustard oil is primarily used in Bengali cooking. This dish utilizes both whole mustard seeds and mustard oil and makes use of shellfish which is a typical ingredient in Bengali cooking.

    Indian Okra Fry (Bhindi) (484549) by Jostlori comes from the Andhra Region. Their cuisine is known for it spicy flavor -- tangy hot and spicy. The people of this region are primarily vegetable eaters and their meals are often served in a banana leaf and is eaten while sitting on mats or small wooden seats. Rice is served as an accompaniment along with hot pickles and chutneys. The people of this region are primarily vegetarians, but in coastal areas, fish is preferred. This dish represents a typical vegetarian dish from this Region.

    Thanks,

    Nancy

    Hi! Here are my two:

    Aviyal - Indian Mixed Vegetable Stew #483960 by alvinakatz - Kerala: Aviyal is a popular and traditional dish in Kerala. It is a common one used as a vegetarian option and incorporates several features common to cooking in the region: hot and spicy flavors, and the use of coconut, which grow there.

    Madras Egg Curry #481968 by Chocolatl - Tamil Nadu: While egg curries are common throughout India, it is the use of Madras curry which suggests this to be most closely matched to the Tamil Nadu region. Madras curry originated from the city formerly known as Madras (now known as Chennai) in Tamil Nadu. There is also the use of tomato paste, which is a common variation on Madras curry dishes.

    Paneer Paratha #483513 by Alaska Pam
    Within the Punjab region, there are different preferences. People in the area of Amritsar prefer stuffed parathas and milk products. Many of the most popular elements of Anglo-Indian cuisine - such as Tandoor, Naan, Pakoras and vegetable dishes with paneer - derive from the Punjab

    I have chosen Southern India

    Aviyal - Indian Mixed Vegetable Stew
    South Indian curries and gravies are famous for thier taste as well as thier healthy appeal. Compared to North Indian Curries, the South Indian states of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh And Kerala have thier own recipes to boast about..As shown in this one

    Bangaladumpa Vepudu Aka Fried Minted Potatoes
    Most Indian restaurants in America serve North Indian cuisine. Try making a South Indian curry to discover the art of the dry curries and just how flavorful, simple and delicious they can be.
