Indian dishes are vastly diverse, and not to mention delicious because of the variety of flavors and regions. Indian cuisine is continually put on foodie lists all over the world.

India’s regional and cultural diversity reflects beautifully in its food and is possibly the main reason why Indian food outranks that of other countries. Each Indian state has its own unique pandora of flavours and ingredients. Even the spices they use are their own concoction and made from scratch: dhansak masala, panch phoron, garam masala, chicken tikka masala and many more.

Read on to learn about the top 10 Best Indian dishes how you can recreate them for yourself.


butter chicken || Chicken Makhani Indian Dish

Butter chicken is not just butter chicken in India, it is better chicken. This dish is highly ordered by the food lover in local Indian restaurants. It really tastes amazing and the most amazing thing about it every cook has a different style to make it more and more than delicious.

The best piece about butter chicken is that the only ingredient you may require is curry powder. And rest is commonly essential items like olive oil, onion, garlic, ginger, butter, and tomato puree.


Though a lot of traditional Indian food uses meat, there are plenty of Indian vegetarian dishes. You can make your own butter chicken vegetarian by substituting chicken for tofu.

You can mimic the taste and texture of chicken by tossing tofu pieces with corn starch. Then, bake the pieces in the oven and voila! You have slightly crispy, delicious, buttery vegetarian “chicken”.


top 10 indian dishes samosas

Samosas are a very popular traditional Indian Dish. Probably because samosas are a tasty, fried, or baked pastry with savory fillings.

Spiced potatoes, onions, peas, and lentils fill traditional samosas. But sometimes, they are made with ground lamb, ground beef or ground chicken.

Good news for all of you Indian food lovers and solely plant-based eaters. Indian samosas are usually vegan! That means the pastry is free of eggs and dairy products.

Samosas are often accompanied by a sweet mint sauce or chutney. These puffy treats are a common street food. You can find tourists and Indians natives alike eating them as a midday snack or a side to a main dish.


Malai kofta vege balls recipe

Malai kofta (vegetable “meatballs” in a thick sauce) is the vegetarian alternative to meatballs. The koftas are made with a mix of potatoes, carrots, beans, peas, and sweet corn, which are cooked and mashed before mixing with spices and paneer, that essential blocked “cheese” that is similar to tofu in texture and a great addition to any vegetarian meal. It’s rather easy to find if you don’t want to make it, especially if you shop at a natural foods market. Malai kofta goes very well with naan or jeera rice.


garlic naam

If you’ve never experienced good naan bread, your life has been much less delicious than it could be.

Naan is a leavened, oven-baked flatbread. You normally serve Naan with all meals.

This bread is the perfect combination of chewy and crispy, buttery and garlicky. It’s exactly what every Indian dish needs to complement the otherwise bright and intense flavors.

There are many different types of naan breads depending on what you’re in the mood for.

  • Butter and garlic naan bread are the classics.
  • Paneer naan is a delicious Indian cheese type.
  • Chili naan is great for those spice fiends.
  • And of course, there’s always the classic, no-fuss, plain naan.

However you eat it, naan acts as almost a spoon to soup up sauce or dipped into chutneys. An Indian meal isn’t complete without naan at its side.


Matar Paneer (Peas and Cooked Cottage Cheese)

Here’s another for the “Indian vegetarian dishes” category!

Matar paneer comes from regions of northern India. It’s made up of a yummy tomato sauce over paneer (farmer’s cheese) and peas, and spiced with garam masala.

Like many Indian dishes, matar paneer is best when paired with a cooling side dish, like cream or bread.

Depending on the region, it’s likely to be served with rice, naan, paratha, poori, or roti.

Enjoy dipping your bread (or Naan) into the tomato gravy after you eat up the cheese and veggies.

Whether you choose naan, yogurt, aloo, or cream, to pair with this dish, your taste buds will thank you!


curried meat || Indian dshes

The literal translation for Rogan Josh, the name of this dish from Kashmir is “red lamb.” The color comes from Kashmiri dry red chilies. While the name may sound fiery, the heat of the dish is toned down by the cream that is added at the end.

The list of spices called for in this recipe may seem long, but a trip to your local international food market should set you up nicely. Spices such as cardamom, cumin, turmeric, and garam masala are often sold in small bulk quantities, so they’ll last for quite a long time.


It’s hard to find anyone who doesn’t fall in love with tandoori chicken, that famous Indian barbecue chicken recipe. Although traditionally cooked in a clay oven, you can prepare the yogurt-marinated chicken in a regular oven (or on the grill). You do need to plan ahead, as the coated chicken should sit in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours or overnight. If you prefer, you can sear the marinated chicken cubes first on the stovetop to achieve that signature tandoori char.


masala chai tea

There’s nothing like the experience of stopping at a chaiwala on an Indian street and ordering a steaming cup of masala chai. The beverage has gained worldwide popularity, becoming a feature in many coffee and teahouses.

Indians make masala chai by brewing black tea with a mixture of aromatic spices and herbs.

Traditionally, the chai recipe calls for green cardamom pods, cinnamon sticks, ground cloves, ground ginger, black peppercorn, and black tea leaves.

In international tea shops, it’s often sold in a tea bag form, with a variety of revolving recipes.

But once combined with steaming hot milk (or your favorite non-dairy milk!), it’s delicious all around, whether found in India, your hometown.


Banana lasi || The best Indian Dishes

Lassi’s are yogurt-based drinks made with water, spices, and sometimes fruit. Mango or cardamom-flavored lassis are some of the most popular, but did you know that there are also savory ones? Milk and salt might not sound good to you, but in India, it’s not so uncommon.

For dairy-free folks, simply use a substitute. There are a variety of plant-based yogurt options like cashew or soy!


Papdi chaat recipe

North Indians love to eat spicy food. Thus, Papdi is all waiting for you. Papdi and chaat are one of the deadly required most popular snacks for North Indians. It is really astonishing that vendors jam the streets while selling these 2 amazingly crafted food. The Chaat parties are also so much in trend besides of having dinner. People do the fun task while eating Papdi chaat and the similar snacks. Serve with tangy, spicy, and sweet sauce to make the taste tastier.
