Terms Commonly Used in Indian Cuisine
Indian cuisine is traditionally spicy, complex and varies from region to region. Although Indian cuisine in the United States has been adjusted to serve the American palate, certain culinary staples such as naan, samosas and biryani can be found just as easily in the United States as they can on the Indian subcontinent. Here are a few terms for popular Indian foods:

Tandoori: A type of Indian cuisine cooked in a Tandoor, which is a clay oven which is placed over an open charcoal or wood fire.

Masala: A spice mixture consisting of garlic, ginger, onion and chili paste.

Curry: A general term that describes either a spice mixture or the cuisine in which that spice mixture is an ingredient. Indian, Thai, Pakistani, Sri Lankan and Bangladeshi cuisines all have a form of curry.

Samosa: A fried or baked type of dumpling typically filled with potatoes, lentils, peas, coriander and occasionally chicken or lamb.

Chutney: A condiment made of fresh or preserved fruit or vegetables.

Pearl Millet: The most largely grown form of millet. It is the base for many Indian and African dishes.

Naan: A flat bread which is traditionally cooked in a tandoor. It can be flavored with garlic, onion, sesame seeds, raisins, cheese or numerous other spices or herbs.

Basmati: A variety of highly fragrant, long grained rice grown in India, Bangladesh and Pakistan.

Chole: A vegetable dish made from spices and chickpeas. It is popular in India and Pakistan.

Biryani: A type of rice based dish that can include meat, fish, chicken, eggs or vegetables. It originated in Iran and was introduced to the Indian Subcontinent by Iranian merchants and travelers.

Vindaloo: A type of curry dish made from pork, lamb, chicken and occasionally potatoes.

Creating an authentic Indian dish can be a great culinary experience to share with friends and family. Rather than going to a restaurant, why not cook Indian cuisine at home? Keep in mind, however, that since there are so many delicious recipes to choose from, narrowing down your menu can be a challenge. Before you begin planning your next Indian meal, consider asking yourself some questions that will help identify the best dish for you and your guests.

  • How spicy do you want your food?
    The Indian flavor you've likely tasted in restaurants is often derived from varieties of masala. This can vary from the incredibly spicy tandoori to the more flexible possibilities of curry. When you cook, consider using authentic spices rather than mixes or pre-packaged rice dishes for a better dining experience.

  • Are there vegetarians within the dinner party?
    While Indian cuisine can include chicken, lamb, or seafood, there are many meat-free recipes as well. In fact, Indian food is beloved by many vegetarians because of the variety of flavors their dishes can offer while still remaining meat-free. You can create a dish with delicious paneer or fresh vegetables with rice to satisfy those guests with minimal extra effort.

  • What ingredients do you have access to at your local store?
    Not all Indian ingredients can be found at your local market, so you'll need to take this into consideration when planning your menu.

  • Will you make Indian dessert?
    Aside from their savory entrees, Indian food also contains many authentic easy-to-make sweet treats. This can be a great way to balance the spice of your main dish and introduce your guests to some lesser known Indian flavors!
