what ingredients do i need to cook indian food?

Indian food has always been a favorite of mine. However, I have minimal experience preparing it myself. I want to start learning some basic dishes, but I don't know what ingredients I should have on hand.  Let's see if data science can give me a leg up!

1.) Scrape Indian recipe data from allrecipes.com: 

2.) Analyze ingredients for the most important bigrams using TF-IDF: 

3.) Consider the top 25 results and decide on a list of key ingredients:

- SPICES: salt, garam masala, ground turmeric, ground cumin, cumin seeds, curry powder, ground coriander, black pepper

- FATS: vegetable oil

- FRESH PRODUCE: garlic, ginger, cilantro, chile peppers
