As we enjoy the final month of Summer, often the hottest month, foods are still light and cooling. Gradually over the month, as signs of Autumn appear, the foods gain a little depth. We don’t want to think yet about the end of Summer, and that it means the approaching Winter. Spicy Indian food is great in Late Summer – the heat of the dishes is cooling to the system, and there are many cooling drinks, raitas and simply prepared foods. Rasams and Sambars abound.
