Here our Indian fiends have shared a yummy dessert!
The cuisine in India is as vast and wide ranging as its multi ethnic culture. The delicious and the exotic dishes of India are marked by the subtle uses of spices and herbs. Indian cuisines vary widely from region to region. Different regions adopt different cuisines. India is proud to serve the most diverse cuisine in the whole world.
Every region has its own specialties and different way of cooking. The style of cooking, flavor and their specialties change with the landscapes. Most of the Indian cuisines are vegetarian but the Indians also love non-vegetarian delicacies cooked out of fish, lamb, goat, chicken and other meats. Food has always been important to the culture of India.
Spices and aromatics are the very heart of Indian cooking. Flowers, leaves, roots, bark, seeds and bulbs (the simplest of natural ingredients) are used in endless combinations to produce an infinite variety of flavors: sweet, sharp, hot, sour, spicy, aromatic, tart, mild, fragrant or pungent. Their tastes and aromas combine to create a kaleidoscope of exotic flavors to delight the plate.

“We enjoy a variety of foods here in the UK, from main meals to snacks to desserts. And let’s not tea time, we are known for our love of our afternoon tea! We are very excited to join a project called Global Cooking, Global Fun.”
“Sometime next week, we are going to be cooking scones live via Google Hangouts on Air while her students and another class cook along with us! How exciting is that?”
“This is a brief idea of the types of food we eat:
Although lots of English people eat the Full English Breakfast consisting of: bacon, eggs, sausages, mushrooms and baked beans, the most common breakfast, in England, is actually just cereal. The most popular types of cereal are made out of wheat, oats or corn, such as: porridge, corn flakes, muesli and Weetabix. Tea is also very popular in England to drink with breakfast.
A very popular English tradition is the Sunday Roast, which is a big meal eaten by the entire family, on Sunday for lunch. This consists of a roast meat with gravy, and a few different types of vegetables (usually including potatoes).
The traditional English dinner is mostly the same as the Sunday roast, with meat and vegetables, but just less of it. Although now, most people in England actually eat curry for dinner! People still eat loads of different vegetables with their dinner including: peas, carrots, broccoli, cucumber, cress and fresh salad leaves.
Amazingly, many people now consider curry as the national dish of England, that’s how popular it is. We have it once or twice a week, as we love it too!”
Scones resemble the texture of cake, but taste like bread, they are made with wheat, and are sometimes glazed with egg. They usually have a sweet taste, and are traditionally eaten at tea time, a small meal between lunch and dinner, and are served with a pot of tea, clotted cream and jam.
The first scones were round and flat, they were made out of oats, and cooked on a griddle, then cut into triangles to serve. Now, most scones are served round, made out of wheat, and cooked in the oven. There are lots of variations of scones that can be served with different things, but they are most commonly served with jam and cream.
There are two different ways to pronounce the word scone. The first rhymes with gone, and the second rhymes with cone. In the UK, the most common pronunciation is the first way, rhyming with gone.

Scones became popular and an essential part of the fashionable ritual of taking tea in England when Anna, the Duchess of Bedford (1788 – 1861), one late afternoon, ordered the servants to bring tea and some sweet breads, which included scones.
She was so delighted by this, that she ordered it every afternoon and what now has become an English tradition is the “Afternoon Tea Time”.
They are still served daily with the traditional clotted cream topping in Britain
