Indian cuisine encompasses a wide variety of regional cuisines native to India. Given the range of diversity in soil type, climate and occupations, these cuisines vary significantly from each other and use locally available spices, herbs, meat, vegetables, and fruits. Indian food is also heavily influenced by religious and cultural choices.
The development of these cuisines have been shaped by Hindu and Jain beliefs, and in particular by vegetarianism, which is a growing dietary trend in Indian society. There has also been Persian influence on North Indian cuisine from the years of Mughal and Delhi Sultanate rule. Indian cuisine has been and is still evolving, as a result of the nation’s cultural interactions with other societies.
North Indian cuisine cannot be placed into strict classifications, it is a style that through thousands of years of uninterrupted history has continued to evolve. Fresh herbs, along with pungent spices are blended in ways that have, over time, become closely guarded secrets.
Of course some of the tradition of North India remains elusively foreign to us in Australia. There is only so much atmosphere that can be transported to distant shores. At Indian Brothers we tap into our cherished traditions to bring you a taste that is unique. Our combinations of succulents meats, fresh vegetables and authentic Indian spices bring a hint of North India to every meal we serve.
Each one of our restaurants has a genuine Tandoor oven in pride of place. Our chefs are trained in the authentic art of Tandoori cooking. High heat for short periods thoroughly cooks meat while retaining flavour and tenderness. When combined with the right blend of herbs and spices, the results are memorable.
