Indian cuisine has been and is still evolving, as a result of the nation's cultural interactions with other societies. There has also been Central Asian influence on North Indian cuisine from the years of Mughal rule. Mughal Rule changed Indian food and added new varieties like samosa, champ, Jalebi etc.
Indian cuisine encompasses a wide variety of regional cuisines native to India. Given the range of diversity in soil type, climate, culture, ethnic group and occupations, these cuisines vary significantly from each other and use locally available spices, herbs, vegetables and fruits. Indian food is also heavily influenced by religious and cultural choices and traditions. Historical incidents such as foreign invasions, trade relations and colonialism have also played a role in introducing certain foods to the country. For instance, the potato, a staple of the Indian diet, was brought to India by the Portuguese, who also introduced chillies and breadfruit. Indian cuisine has also shaped the history of international relations; the spice trade between India and Europe is often cited by historians as the primary catalyst for Europe's Age of Discovery. Spices were bought from India and traded around Europe and Asia. It has also influenced other cuisines across the world, especially those from Southeast Asia, the British Isles, Fiji, and the Caribbean.

Spices for the longest time have been used to make food more palatable if not interesting. There are many countries in the world that grow and rear the herbs for the sole purpose of trade and distribution.See More
I've had some jams that are really spicy (chilli jam) and some chutneys that are really sweet (mango and ginger). I was wondering what is the actual difference between jams and chutneys.See More
