It eventually amplifies the taste and uplifts the quality of food prepared. The specialty of Ashvatha Indian Subzi Masala lies solely in being pious, gluten-free,100% organic, and containing zero preservatives along with being rich as antioxidant .. Thus cooking is an art and exploring Indian food with Ashvatha Indian Subzi Masala definitely would expand the cooking repertoire.
Spices are famous worldwide, besides being food enhancers, they have medicinal benefits in them too.
As per past Indian traditions, it is seen that hunters and gatherers wrapped meat in leaves and added seeds, nuts, berries and bark, accidentally discovering that such process improves that taste of their food.
Over the years, spices and herbs were also used as a way to mask unpleasant tastes and odors of food, and later, to keep food fresh.
Ancient civilizations did not distinguish between those spices and herbs used for flavoring with those used for medicinal purposes. When leaves, seeds, roots, or gums had a pleasant taste or agreeable odor, its demand surged and gradually a norm for that culture as a condiment.
Spices were also valuable as items of exchange and trade. Even the Bible mentions that in 1000 BC, the Queen of Sheba visited King Solomon in Jerusalem and offered him “120 measures of gold, many spices, and precious stones”.
It is also believed that when Vasco de Gama discovered India in 1942, he encountered pirates exporting spices from India to Portugal. At that time spices had value more than gold. Over 5000 years ago, salt which was produced in India was even given as the salary for Roman soldiers, hence coining the term “worth his salt”.
Adding to that in the 4th century BC, black pepper was extremely valuable and was called black gold.
As early as the 8th century BC spices indigenous to India (e.g. cardamom and turmeric) were cultivated in the gardens of Babylon (Sinha, 2003; Tapsell, 2006).
Spices have long stories of their benefits and usage but what makes them so useful was the purity that also lies in Ashvatha Indian Subzi Masala. Interestingly, they used to be so pious that Sushruta, an ancient Indian physician (around 4th century BC) used white mustard and other aromatic plants in bedsheets to ward to off malignant spirits. He also applied a poultice from sesame to post-operation wounds which may have acted as an antiseptic.
