Vegetarian and non-vegetarian

Because of the commandmentsHinduTop ofcastePeopleJainism OfVegetarianThe food for is well developed from ancient times.Besides,Hinduism,Buddhism,Jainism,SikhismThere are many religions that eat vegetarian food.Eid al-Adhaな どmeatConsumption occupies an important position in religious ritualsIslamThen.CarnivoreIs affirmed.Also,SlaughterDalit involved in the business (Untouchable people) Society has a long tradition of incorporating meat into its diet.In this way, Indian vegetarian and non-vegetarian traditions are closely related to religion and caste, and in the cityRestaurantsThe vegetarian and non-vegetarian seats are clearly separated, and they will not be present.

In Indian vegetarian food, fatgelatinWithout using any animal meat or ingredients made from animals, includingeggDo not use.But obtained without damaging the animalDairy productsIs commonly used, and most Indian vegetarians are vegetarians (lactovegetarians).In addition, various beans, grains,nutNo carnivorous food is required nutritionally because it is also used.Hinduism,SikhismThe sacrament served free of charge to worshipers at the temple is a vegetarian dish.

The most devout believers in Jain eat only leaves, stems and beans, even plants.carrot (Hindi: ग़ाजल) AndRadish (Hindi: मूली),garlic (Hindi: garlic),onion (Hindi: प्याज़),potatoDo not eat the root part such as.One of the reasons for this is "to not kill creatures such as insects in the soil."Furthermore, from the idea that "that part corresponds to the" body "", that is, the idea that it leads to killing the main body part instead of the branches and leaves, it is by avoiding killing even plants as much as possible.SimilarlyBeeGreat risk of killinghoneyI don't even take it.Onions, garlic, etc.Five 葷The habit of avoiding ingestionBrahminIt can also be seen in.on the other hand,West Bengal,AssamThe vegetarians in East India are often pescutarians who also eat fish.

"Curry" and Indian food

The word "curry" ("curry") in India is a loan word.For IndiansSpicesThere are many stewed dishes using, and each is called by the name of each dish.SpicesAll Indian dishes that make heavy use of food are called "curry".Japanese cuisineIn other words, it is a rough name that calls all side dishes using soy sauce with the same name.Of curryEtymologyThere are various theories,TamilThe theory that "kaRi" means "meal" is influential.

People who are familiar with such situations may say, "There is no'curry'in India."However, in the Great OneThe United KingdomBut some Indian food is called curryBritish foodIt is also a fact that it has spread all over the world by incorporating it into.Indians themselves have come to use the word "curry" to explain it to people in countries other than India in an easy-to-understand manner, and the menu says "ingredients + curry" at Indian restaurants inside and outside India. There are many examples of doing so.For exampleLars Behari BoseWas the person who introduced the authentic "Indian curry" as different from the original Indian curry at that time, but did not say "the name curry is wrong".

Curry powderIs also an invention by an Englishman (see the relevant item for details).There is another spice compound in South India, which is sometimes translated into English as "curry powder", but the taste and ingredients are different.

"Pure" and "Unclean"

The general Indian sense is that the right hand is "purified" and the left hand is "unclean".Therefore, only the right hand that has been washed clean can directly touch the food during meals, and because it is unclear whether it is really clean or not to enjoy the texture of the cooked ingredients, spoons, forks, knives, etc. I basically hate using it.The left hand is also used for processing when the toilet is used, so it is limited to touching the outside of a plate or a glass of water at best.In the traditional method, instead of using a spoon, you can either tear the bread directly with your right hand and soak it in the soup, or mix the rice with the soup and bring it to your mouth.At that time, it is more elegant to use the second joint of the fingertips up to the thumb, index finger, and middle finger.However, urban people who are accustomed to Western customs tend to be comfortable with using spoons and knives.Also, if you have to use both hands, such as when peeling a boiled egg, you may use both hands.[Needs verification].

The sense of cleanliness and uncleanness is also thorough, and it is a characteristic of Indian cuisine that many dishes are fried or stir-fried.This is based on the idea that cooking with oil purifies food.Also, the reason why metal tableware is preferred over porcelain and pottery is that the latter is cleaner than the former made of soil.Foods that others have modified are considered to be tainted.

Furthermore, in Hinduism, the concepts of "purity" and "impure" are traditionally linked to the concept of caste.Water and watery foods touched by people belonging to the lower caste are considered to be contaminated, and in the past, people belonging to the higher caste and people belonging to the lower caste should not eat at the same seat, but hand over water. Even was repelled.Traditionally for professional cooksBrahminMany people come from Japan, and the custom of bringing homemade bento boxes for vacations and travel is deep-rooted, and the family-made bento boxes are delivered to the workplace.DabbawalaIt is for this reason that the industry is established.Only in recent years by Dalit womenCateringAlthough there are examples of successful businesses, food discrimination is still reported today, when caste discrimination has become illegal.[3].
