Suppose a strange categorization is being done.

Cronologically which are the 10 best state of India, according to you, on the basis of food food availibility?

I am sure, you start a controversy.

Based on home food of only southern states,

Taste of food according to my taste puds,

1. Kerala
2. Tamilnadu
3. Andhra.

Availability of food,

common, it is a place where 110 crore people are living. No scarcity if you have money!!!!

It is for sure that south indian food will taste better to a soth indian person.

I am a bangali and I like the bangali dishes best.

My point is not that.

My poit is to chronologically categorize the states of india on the basis of different vareity of food availability.

Does Kerala offeres better vareity than Delhi?

I am talking about that.

In north india, i have eaten only in restaurant. So, not a good source to predict something.

As far as tamilnadu, there are lot of varieties which is only made in houses. I believe the same for all other states as well.

Lets wait, some one will come up with lot of experiences around all states.

Best? Variety? Top 10 States? Maybe an easier answer would be the worst States for eating. I wouldn't know this answer but I have eaten good food everywhere I've been in India. Do I have preferences? Yes, like everyone else.

The best food I've ever eaten was in houses in Almora District in what used to be Uttar Pradesh. But Keralan food, being very fresh with lots of seafood is high on my list. Best restaurant I've ever eaten in is in Hong Kong, The Viceroy. That was in the 90's, and, don't know how it is today.

Every state has its unique and authentic cuisine and as a foodie I love all sorts of food. If I am to say where I ate the best food through out my travel I would say Kashmir. I spent a week in Kashmir and each meal dished out by the owner of the house boat and some restaurants that we went to was fantastic.
Today we are going to Kashmir festival at CV mess in Janpath to do some shopping and have lunch cooked by a group of Wazas from Kashmir.

I certainly couldn't give a top 10 list, and any list would only be to that person's preferences.

But If I had to choose my favourites.....

Non-Veg = Andhra
Veg = Gujarat
Fish = southern (coastal) Karnataka & Kerala
Sweets = West Bengal
Breakfast variety = Kerala
Rice = Andhra
Breads = Delhi & Punjab

Thali = Tamil Nadu

Variety of choice = Mumbai & Delhi
.

Please look at this thread, even if you are not in India.: Have you seen Jonathan Spollen?

He could be anywhere now: You might have met him, be able to help, or give information.

Very true Jyoti da. Trust you to point out the lesser known cuisines of India.

My favorite (other than Andhra)

01. Tamil Nadu (Chettinadu....)
02. Maharashtra (Mumbai, Kolhapur, Konkan....)
03. Delhi (NCR)
04. Punjab (Amritsari macchi, Rajma chawal...)
05. Karnataka (Uppitu, kesri.....)
06. Kerala (Don't let the hype about coconut oil discourage you)
07. Bengal ( I have vague memories from 1979, that may be a reason.. I did cook Jyoti da's Dhoi Machh recently.. but not everyone likes my cooking.)
08. TBA
09. TBA
10. Gujarat (too sweet. )

i feel the real indian food is vegetarian dishes like palak paneer, malai kofta, dal makhani/tadka etc etc. to be had with rumali roti or naan or paratha. finished with papad, and dahi/lassi. aside of that there are great non-veg food too, like biriyani and kababs and chicken do piyazi etc, but they all have their origins in central asia. about only indian-origin non veg items are fish dishes from bengalorrissa and from goa-kerela. i dont like south indian food, but i like south indian snacks - vada, dahi vada, dosa, uttapam etc.

Mod Note: This thread has been moved out of Rajasthan Forum into Indian Cooking and Cuisine

I have to agree with the first part of Jyotiji's first post here - I think all States have good food, but within them you can get to experience both the best and the worst of the food there! For all the States I have travelled in this has been what I have experienced. So if you seemed to only have bad food in your travels in one state you might say that one doesn't make the list - however hidden away can be gems providing some of the best taste you will ever have. The top 10 - is an impossible list I think!
Every cloud has a silver lining!

1 Tamil Nadu (dosa, idli - never causes tummy upset)
2.Panneer dishes from "up north" (not sure which state)
3. Puttu (Kerala)
4 - 10 lovely dishes can be found in any state really..

......(Sorry, got the states and the food the wrong way around)

Cronologically? Do you mean which state was the first to have food?
