Once you have your seven to eight basic Indian spices (cumin seeds, coriander powder, turmeric powder, garam masala, red chile powder, mustard seeds, and kala namak (black salt), you'll be making authentic Indian cuisine in no time, blowing away myths that Indian food is complicated, exotic, or can only be made tastefully in a restaurant. You'll also learn that healthy Indian food is not a misnomer - it's the way a majority of Indians eat at home on a daily basis.
