The timeline in Colleen Sen's book is accurate but oversimplified, because
it doesn't differentiate between the regions of India. India is very large
and only became a single country in the last 50 years. There are major
linguistic, cultural and religious differences between North, South, East,
West and Central regions of India.

There are some really excellent books available in English about historical
Indian cooking- anything by KT Achaya, Food and Drinks in Ancient India by
Om Prakash, and various translated manuscripts.
