There are amazing Indian recipes out there that aren’t made with curry and you should try them

Thinkstock

Try three amazing Indian dishes that aren’t curry.

Indian food is usually associated with curry recipes, like curried goat or curry chicken, but there are so many incredible Indian dishes that don’t include curry.

If you’re craving Indian food you can make kheema, which is an Indian chili, or try tackling mulligatawny, an Indian lentil soup. Here are three non-curry Indian dishes to get you started:

Indian-Inspired Mulligatawny

Created in the time of the Raj, this creamy lentil soup enriched with coconut milk takes its name from a Tamil phrase "milagu thanni," meaning pepper water. — Susannah Blake

Indian Spiced Cookies (Nankhatai) Recipe

These are Indian shortbread cookies called nankhatai. A nankhatai is a simple eggless cookie with butter, flour, and sugar as the main ingredients. Some spice is added to give the cookies an extra zing. I used a mixture of besan (chickpea flour), all-purpose flour, and semolina as the base. Black pepper adds warmth to these sweet, buttery cookies and a little bit of fruity jam or almond on top gives these thumbprint cookies their last finishing touch. You can use any kind of nut or jam of choice. — Prerna Singh

Kheema ("Indian Chili") Recipe

This dish is very similar to a comfort food classic — chili. The recipe includes potatoes, onions, lamb, and peas and it all gets coated with a garam masala blend.

The Top 10 Best Indian Dishes And Recipes

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.

Remember that time you and a friend sit down for dinner at an Indian food restaurant. The smell of jasmine and spice awakens your senses. There is a busy clatter of pots and pans coming from the open kitchen.

Your mouth is already watering as the waiter comes over with a menu full of delectable Indian dishes. Time for the ultimate question: what should you eat?

For those who are not veterans of Indian food eating, making a decision may be difficult.

We created this article for those moments when you’re looking at a menu, feeling dizzy with delight and confusion.

Whether you’re in need of help ordering at a restaurant or are interested in taking a stab at cooking, we’ve got you covered.

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

1. Chicken Makhani (Butter Chicken)

Butter chicken is mouth-watering, tender chicken, cooked in a spiced tomato sauce. It’s traditionally cooked in a tandoor (a cylindrical clay or metal oven), but may be grilled, roasted or pan-fried in less authentic preparations.

Always make the gravy by first cooking fresh tomato, garlic, and cardamom down into a bright red pulp. This pulp is then pureed after cooling. Then, the chef adds butter, various spices, and Khoa (dried whole milk).

Vegetarian Indian Dish Option:

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”.

2. Samosas (Deep-Fried Potato/Veggie Dumpling)

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 (scroll down for Chef Marie’s sweet and savory chutney recipes!). 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.

3. Aloo Gobi (Potato and Cauliflower)

Aloo Gobi is a dry, vegan Indian dish, made with potatoes (aloo), cauliflower (gobi), and Indian spices. It has a warm, yellow-orange color, because it uses a staple in Indian dishes: turmeric.

Aloo Gobi occasionally contains kalonji and curry leaves as well. Other common ingredients include garlic, ginger, onion, coriander stalks, tomato, peas, and cumin. Throw it all together to roast in the oven and you’ve got one of the most popular dishes ordered in Indian restaurants.
