The cuisine of Central India encompasses the regional styles of both North and South India, with each individual state having its own distinct characteristics. Therefore Central Indian cuisine runs the gamut from the hearty curries of Rajasthan, rich with dairy products and earthy spices, to the light-yet-fiery curries Maharashtra-style curries, and the coastal cuisines with their bountiful seafood bathed in the tropical flavors of coconut milk and kaffir lime.
