India, known as the home of spices, boasts a long history of trading with the ancient civilisations of Rome and China. Today, Indian spices are the most sought-after globally, given their exquisite aroma, texture, taste and medicinal value. India has the largest domestic market for spices in the world. Traditionally, spices in India have been grown in small land holdings, with organic farming gaining prominence in recent times. India is the world’s largest producer, consumer and exporter of spices; the country produces about 75 of the 109 varieties listed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and accounts for half of the global trading in spices.
” Total spices export from India stood at 947,790 tonnes valued at US$ 2.63 billion in the year 2016-17, registering a year-on-year growth of 6 per cent in value terms.

An Experience to remember::
As soon as I entered the spice market the essence of the spices struck my nose. I can see a variety of spice powders such as pepper, cardamom, chilli, ginger, turmeric, coriander, cumin, celery, fennel, fenugreek, ajwain, asafetida, dill seed, garlic, tamarind, clove, and nutmeg just to name a few. I bought nearly 100grams of each spice just at Rs. 120 to Rs. 160. Tell me which is your favorite Spice on the comment section below.
