The article presents information on Indian cookery. In Indian cooking, each spice has its own unique function and the ways in which they are manipulated and blended create unique tastes and harmonious flavors. Spice blends are called masalas. A masala in Northern India is composed of dry spices pounded to make a powder that resists spoiling and are said to get better with age. Indian cooks have mastered the timed roast of spices, releasing various flavors from the same spice based on its length of roasting.
