What is however emphasised in the literature on the subject is that the essential character of these substances is in their function, viz., to add flavour, aroma and pungency to various food preparations.3.3 Chapter Notes 9(b) and 9(c) of Chapter 21 CET no doubt give an indication of the type of preparations which are intended to be included in Heading 21.08 of CET.However, it must be remembered that Heading 21.08 is a residuary entry in Chapter 21 and the Rules for the interpretation of the Schedule require that the heading which provides most specific description shall be preferred to headings providing a more general description."Mane Adige" means "Home Food" in kannada and this blog is all about recipes that I cook.Most of the recipes I post here will be from "Mangalooru" and "Bengalooru " regions of Karnataka, India.Board has received representations from Indian Food Industries 'Association and other s seeking clarification as regards the classification of various Indian traditional convenience food mixes, masalas, spices and condiments such as puliyogare powder, vangibath mix, instant samber mix, vangibath powder, sambar powder, instantbisibe lebath, rasam powder, bisibelebath masala, mix spiced chutney powder, cury powder, pickle masala, garam masala etc.2.From the reports received from the Commissionerates, it is observed that while in some places the products in question are being classified as either 'spices' of Chapter 9 of CET or as 'Mixed Condiments and mixed seasonings' of Heading 21.03 of CET, in others the same products are being classified under Heading 2108.90 as 'edible preparations not elsewhere specified or included'.Mysore is also the origin of the popular silk sari known as Mysore silk sari and has also given rise to a popular form of painting known as Mysore painting.
Trade interests have, however, argued that these products are merely additives for different food items and not readily consumable products through the simple processes of cooking, frying, boiling or adding with water, oil or milk.
According to a legend, Vijayadashami denotes the victory of truth over evil and was the day when the Hindu Goddess Chamundeshwari killed the demon Mahishasura.
Mahishasura is the demon from whose name Mysore has been derived.
Further, Heading 21 in HSN excludes spices of Chapter-9.4.
Consequently, products which are predominantly mixtures of spices / condiments/ seasonings and which are used as such or in the making of food preparations mainly for their aromatic, flavouring or seasoning properties would merit classification under the specific entry of spices in Chapter 9 or Heading 21.03 of CET.
Mysore is well known for its palaces, museums and art galleries and the festivities that take place here during the period of Dasara attract a worldwide audience.
