Indian food is one of the most popular options around the world. It doesn’t matter where you are, Indian food has its own delicate touches and tastes. It is something that can be eaten whenever you want it – lunch, snack or dinner. So with Indian food so easily accessible (thank you delivery man!), there’s even more of a reason to go out and try multiple dishes when it comes to deciding what to eat any night of the week. We could easily name a thousand great Indian dishes, but let’s start with the best ones you should try tonight! Here are the top three Indian dishes: Dal, Biryani and Tandoori Chicken.

Delicious Dal – The Traditional Indian Cuisine

Dal is probably the most popular out of all the dishes because it is not only served in India but Nepal and surrounding countries. It is a mixture of lentils, beans, vegetables, spices, and leaves. It not only has a range of ingredients, but the flavour and unique texture is something that will have you coming back for more. It also comes accompanied with bread, mostly naan or roti bread. And while it might seem like it’s overloaded with too many flavours, you’ll be thankful to know that it is not only tasty but it’s good for you! With a high amount of protein, it is very healthy for you. If you are looking for something more traditional and are trying to experience the Indian cuisine without having to leave Australia, Dal is the perfect fit for you!

Brazing Biryani – The Mixture That Explodes With Flavor

This dish is made with rice, meat and plenty of spices. Much like the Dal, it can be found in a range of countries, throughout Asia to the Middle East to Africa. It comes as the main rice dish or can also be served as an appetizer. With its perfect combination of spices, such as cinnamon, coriander and ginger, it will make your taste buds want each and every bite until the last spoonful. Once the food hits your tongue, each spice can be tasted with the mixture of rice and meat. It is an explosion of flavor that you will just crave after every bite.

Tandoori Chicken – A Classic That Everyone Loves

Tandoori chicken is probably the most common, or well-known dish of them all. It can be found in wraps and other sandwich varieties, but in a traditional Indian dish, it is normally the main course, with a side of naan or roti bread. The dish consists of a roasted chicken, a range of spices and yoghurt. It is all mixed together and marinated until it becomes the bright orange colour that you would recognize. It is then heated to perfection and ready for serving. It can be either placed on skewers or plated has a whole chicken. It has been mimicked throughout the world, but nothing beats a traditionally made Tandoori Chicken dish. Try yours today to get the best taste of India.
