What to order when trying Indian food for the first time

Trying a new cuisine can be exciting and intimidating all at the same time. If you’ve decided to sample Indian cuisine, here are a few suggestions that are ideal for first-timers.

  • A samosa is a flaky pastry stuffed with vegetables such as potatoes, onions, and peas. Normally fried and crispy, the samosa is something you can easily consume while on the go.
  • The dosa is a very thin pancake that somewhat resembles a crepe. Made from fermented rice batter, it makes a great entrée as well as a side dish.
  • Lentil curry, sometimes referred to as “dal” or “daal”, consists of yellow or red split peas, lentils, or chickpeas. The result is a very thick stew that can be served as a main dish. It is gluten free and a perfect choice for those on a vegetarian diet.

Try one of these delicious choices and we think you will greatly enjoy your introduction to Indian cuisine.
