Indian food comprises many f, modifier, from the fiery x to the Portuguese-influenced y, to the more familiar z

A and B don't modify the "styles of cooking" properly. "styles of cooking" is a product of regional influences.

A. with each a product of their >> modifier issue

A. with each a product of their - Thier - India is singular ----->
Of course "their" cannot refer to India. However 'styles' is plural.

If "their" refers to styles then -
styles' regional influences is nonsensical. Since "styles of cooking" is a product of regional influences.

My reasoning goes exactly the same as yours .. so D for me too ..

I differ from you on one thing ... highlighted in bold above ... I feel "Indian food" is a product of regional influences and not "styles of cooking" ... so A and B don't have to modify "styles of cooking" .. they have to modify "Indian food", which there are not doing .. hence both of 'em are wrong ..
correct me if I am wrong ..

Each, like every, is always used with a singular noun form and therefore with a singular verb form.
For example:
Each product has different function.

For this question, only D is correct.

A. with each a product of their
Wrong. "their" is incorrect.

B. with each as a product of its
Wrong. "Its" does not refer to anything.

C. each products of their
Wrong. "Products" is incorrect.

D. each a product of >>> CORRECT.

E. each products of
Wrong. "Products" is incorrect.

I am a non-native English speaker and I have trouble understanding that why "each" is modifying "styles of cooking" but not "cooking" itself?

It's similar to: There are 30 students in the class, each uniquely talented.

Here, "each" would modify "students", not "class", because from the meaning of the sentence, it is not saying that "each class" is uniquely talented.

Similarly, from the meaning of this sentence, each style is a product of regional influences.
