Think of aloo tikki as delicious Indian potato fritters. Aloo tikki is a North Indian snack made of boiled potatoes and various spices. “Aloo” means potato, and the word “tikki” means a small cutlet or croquette. The spicy potato croquettes can be served with tamarind sauce, chopped green chillies, and green peas or chickpeas.
The Panipuri is a popular street snack in India. It consists of a round, hollow puri, fried crisp and filled with a mixture of flavoured water, tamarind chutney, chili, chaat masala, potato, onion and chickpeas.
Baingan bharta is a South Asian dish bearing a resemblance to baba ghanoush. Baingan bharta is a part of the national cuisines of both India and Pakistan. The word ‘Bharta’ (pronounced BHURR-taah) refers to dishes in which the ingredients are roughly mashed either before or after the dish is prepared.
Bhelpuri is a savoury Indian snack, and is also a type of chaat. It is made out of puffed rice, vegetables and a tangy tamarind sauce.
Naan is the bread you’ll use to soak up all of the sauce on your plate. It’s usually pillowy soft, warm, and brushed with oil and herbs. You can customize your naan with a few different additions, and garlic is always a good way to go.
If jalfrezi is like Indian stir fry, then biryani is like Indian fried rice. Rice is the primary ingredient to which any combination of meats, vegetables, dried fruits, nuts, and spices are added. Some biryanis contain raisins, which add a level of sweetness to the otherwise savory and flavorful dish.
