These have the perfect flavor when it comes to trying out Indian recipes for the first time. There is really nothing like the crispy bite of fresh samosa.

If you like bread, you will definitely love it. The best way to try out Naan is with the butter chicken dip or the Kadahi paneer recipes. There are different flavors of Naan - from garlic to keema. Indian food is incomplete without this bread.
- Butter Chicken: This recipe consists of the chunks of chicken dipped in a mixture of spices and yogurt, then roasted and served with tomato sauce. There are variations of butter chicken in India and they are best served with Naan.
- Biryani: It is one of the best cooking recipes Indian and non-Indian love. It is a rice dish best served with vegetables. It consists of different layers of rice which is cooked and mixed with some seasonings and spices. Indian food recipes cover six different tastes from spicy, sharp, sweet, salty, sweet and bitter. It simply depends on how the dish is cooked.
