India is undoubtedly the home to world’s oldest civilizations. The Indus Valley Civilization which was discovered just 100 years ago has been confined to India. It was some 5000 years ago that the Indus Valley civilization emanated. Some archeological research has shown that it was an advanced civilization with well developed cities.

Interestingly an exhibition named “Historical Gastronomica” in New Delhi, India has conceptualized the food that South Asians living here ate.

The ‘Historical Gastronomica: The Indus Dining Experience’ at the National Museum in Delhi has a specially crafted tasting menu on Indus Valley food culture that includes Khatti dal, Kachri ki sabzi, black gram stewed with jaggery and seasame oil, raggi ladu, thin barley griddle cakes, sweet rice with banana and honey and a special “Indus Valley Khichri”.
