What is the strong smell that Indian food always had? You usually smell it in the homes of Indian people?

I don't know how to describe it, what's the strong odor that Indian restaurants and Indian people's kitchen usually have?

which food seasoning causes this smell? It seems like it's unique to Indians. I guess they really love that seasoning, since all Indian restaurants and Indian people's homes smell like this?

  • Curry.
    Ginger, garlic, tumeric, anise, cumin, bay leaf, fenugreek, cardamom, cinnamon, coriander seeds, cloves, mustard seeds, peppercorn, etc.

    A wide variety of pungent spices that mix together very well.

  • Tumeric and their curries. I live in a city where the majority of the people are Indians so you get used to it after awhile.

  • it is curry, tumeric, cumin and incense

    seriously, I live with 3 Indians, it never smells like "Indian" lol
    Maybe I just got used to it, since I have lived with Indian, Pakistani and bangoli people for the last 3 years
