The Geography of East India

East India straddles the border of India and Bangladesh, with the Indian portion designated as the states of West Bengal, Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Nagland, Meghalaya, Tripura, Manipur and Mizoram. The cuisine of this region has a long culinary history, with British, French, Chinese, Afghan, Muslim, Anglo-Christian, and Jewish cultural influences.

Join me throughout the week for a closer look at East India and its cuisine. My East Indian curry recipe will be posted at the end of the week.
