From palak paneer to tandoori chicken, the recipes are quite easy if you have some essential ingredients found in Indian cuisine.

Butter Chicken 

Butter chicken is so delicious that it is one of the most ordered dishes at any Indian restaurant in the West. This poultry dish tastes so well with naan, kaali daal (black lentils), and a green salad.

The best thing about this recipe is that the only ingredient you need is the curry powder. Besides, you’ll need popular items like onion, ginger, garlic, butter, olive oil, and tomato puree.

Tandoori Chicken 

Tandoori Chicken is a famous Indian barbecue chicken recipe. It’s difficult to find anyone who doesn’t love this dish. It can be served over basmati rice tossed with turmeric, then add some slices of fresh onion for an extra taste.

Chicken Tikka Masala 

Chicken tikka masala is such a delicious grilled chicken dish that you can’t forget just after the first bite. The creamy gravy of spiced tomato combines perfectly with the garlic, chili, and ginger marinated chicken for a great smoky flavor.

Rogan Josh 

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

Chole (Chickpea Curry) 

Chole is a classic chickpea curry. It is a favorite in the North of India and has become a worldwide sensation. It’s the perfect dish for a crowd, especially if you serve it hot with fried Indian leavened bread like bhatura or poori.

Naan (Leavened Indian Flatbread) 

The last dish, but certainly not the least, is Indian flatbread. Naan is a favorite of everyone and can go well with everything you make, such as tandoori chicken or all kinds of kebabs.
