Preface

India is considered the Home Spices since ancient times. Although different spices are produced in different countries of the world, India has the privilege of producing all types of spices. In some spices like black pepper, cardamom and turmeric, India holds top position among the major spice producing countries of the world.

Spices have been prized for centuries. In fact, they were once valued as highly as gold. There are accounts of how people followed the trails of early merchants in their search for spices. They explain how indigenous spices were traded, and were once a royal luxury. Today spices cost so little, and even more new and unusual varieties of spices are available.

Exotic, aromatic and exciting spices add piquancy, tang and fiery flavour to food, and are a versatile ingredient to all forms of cooking.

Spices are also useful as preservatives and antibiotics, and for their therapeutic benefits.
