It’s a fact everyone is aware of that Indian cuisine is to be hot and spicy. The variety that Indian food offers is something you cannot get anywhere else. In India, each state has its unique specialty food and different traditions and customs of preparing them. Variety of herbs, spices, fruits and vegetables is what it takes to cook an authentic Indian meal.
There are several Indian restaurants in the UK. Famous for their curry and authentic meals, Indian restaurants are running successfully in foreign countries. If you have never had Indian food before, here are some tips to help place your first order.
There are number of yummy Indian appetizers for you to choose from. Most of them are deep fried in oil and are served with delicious sweet, sour and spicy chutney. If you have no clue on what to order for starters, it’s best you stick to the tried and tested paneer tikka, aloo chaat, roasted chicken, chilly chicken and chilly paneer. My personal favourite is chilly paneer, which is a must try dish. You can also try Cutlets or patties stuffed with vegetables and spices.
Indian beverages are usually sweet. You can try Lassi, made of yogurt and sugar, and is a famous drink of the Punjabis. You can also go for Badam milk, Falooda or Kesar milk. Most restaurants would serve all the popular Indian beverages.
Here comes the never ending list that never ends. Some popular dishes you can order for the main course are: Chicken Curry, Chicken Kurma, Muttor Paneer, Saag Mushroom. These curries will be accompanied with Indian flat bread and rice. You can order steamed rice or fried rice from the menu. If spicy isn’t your cup of tea, ask the chef to keep the spices less for you. You can always order spicy food once you get the hang of it. Tempted to try Indian cuisine yet?
