  • I would recommend vegetable briyani (probably spelled wrong. It's just a seasoned vegetable and rice dish. You've likely eaten everything in it before, just in different ways. Not to spicy, so a good way to be introduced to the flavor).
    And also butter chicken (chicken in a rich curry sauce that has cream and butter in it. Start mild, you can always get it hotter. Considered one of the best curries to introduce people to)

    Indian food is not as scary and much more approachable than you'd expect. Much of it is ingredients you've had before, just prepared differently and mixed with other things you've had before, but never mixed.
    There are a lot of vegetarian options. Indian cheese (paneer) is often called "Indian cottage cheese," but if you don't like cottage cheese, don't worry, it really is nothing like that, in texture or flavor.
    Most dishes you can get very mild, but if you like hot, I'd still advise you try medium first.

    Oh, am appetizer, called simosas, which is seasoned potatoes (and onion?) In a little triangle shaped pastry, that's been fried, tastes wonderful.

    Lastly, tandoori chicken. It's pieces of chicken cooked with a coating of tandoori seasoning. Juicy and tasty.

  • Biryani (spicy)
    Nihari (spicy)
    Tikka (if you or someone you know wants to go on a diet, this the THE best diet food and this is NOT the British Chicken Tikka Masala)
    Charge (also a good diet food but more difficult)
    Pulao (a more mild version of biryani)
    Bihari boti
    Actual chai (tea)
    Chicken 365(it is spicy)

    Snacks:
    Samosa (chicken in Pakistani restaurant, vegetarian in Indian)
    Chat
    Pani Puri

    Some restaurants in US:
    Detroit- Nihari Caffe
    Chicago-Usmania, bonus Tahoora bakery
    Orlando-Kabab King
    New York-Dera

    Vegetarian stuff is generally better in South-Indian restaurants meat based stuff is much better in Pakistani and sometimes Punjabi ones.

    Feel free to send me a message if you are looking for something specific or recipie for a very easy to cook Tikka.

  • Oh do try it! It's good
    Depends on your tastes really, there are so many dishes with completely different tastes... I started with a tikka Masala and I was hooked, mildly sweet and spicy with fresh chunks of chicken or veggie is good too
    If you like curries try a korma
    But definitely explore the different flavours

  • I like butter chicken and biryani a lot but if I go to a restaurant and they have other things on their menu I will order the other stuff just cause I like to sample other foods. The indian restaurant booth at my school only served 3-4 different indian dishes every day - and 1 butter chicken and 1 was biryani. I loved them both!

  • Tried it once. Some of the best food I ever had. The wife doesn't care for spicy so we haven't been back. I wanted goat because I read it is the most consumed meat in the world but can't find it anywhere in the states but I found it at India restuarants

  • Indian food has a big variety just like it's people. If you like sweet or deserts, you should try gulaab jamun, rasmalai, rasgulla or jalebi.
    If you like spicy, you can go for gol gappe or spicy tandoori chicken.
    It will surely include your type of taste. Try it, Don't wait.

  • There is huge range from which you can select. Spicy south indian or creamy buttery and yet spicy north indian. A range of sweet dishes. India being home of most diverse set of people you get all authentic to fusion of different community. But to taste them you will have to visit india and based on which part you in there can be hundreds of dishes you must try. So yoh see some pretext where you are and even what time you are there is required to suggest.

    • Same here on the madras. I like Caribbean curry a lot too. It's not as spicy but it's more pungent.

  • Depends what you like ofc. But aloo gobi, paneer, chicken curry, biryani, naan or garlic naan and my personal fave daal saag. These are random dishes but mix them however you like

  • Depends what level of spice you can handle. I would suggest a mild spiced chicken korma, it's your most basic and a gd place to start. I would always speak to waiters as well to get their view.

  • If you're vegetarian chana masala or aloo or vegetable korma are my all time favorites. Chicken Tikki, tandoori are good and if you like spice vindaloo

  • Are you a non-vegetarian?
    If you like something buttery and kind of heavy (but amazing) - have butter chicken (chicken in delicious gravy) and butter naan/garlic naan (a bread)
    vegetarian alternative - shahi paneer and same naan
    You should have dal makhni with both of these things - yum
