If you love to mop up curry sauce with a pillowy <a href="/recipes/collection/naan-bread-recipes">naan</a>, we have recipes that’ll you’ll want to try. If you’ve never made your own bread before, Indian flatbreads are a good place to start. Tom Kerridge’s <a href="/recipes/quick-puffy-flatbreads">quick flatbreads</a> couldn’t be simpler – the dough doesn’t require any resting and, after kneading for a couple of minutes and dividing, the balls of dough are roughly flattened ready to be fried.</p>
<p>Anjum Anand’s <a href="/recipes/grilled-flaky-naans">grilled flaky naans</a> will need a few hours for the dough to rest, but they are packed with a heady mixture of spices, including ajwain seeds, which are a little like an extra-pungent thyme. Alternatively, our easy <a href="/recipes/easy-naan-bread">easy naan bread</a> recipe is made in a frying pan.</p>

If you’re nervous about working with dough, we have ideas for sprucing up shop-bought naans, too. These <a href="/recipes/cheese-chilli-naans">cheese &amp; chilli naans</a> make Indian pizzas out of supermarket breads, while Roopa Gulati gives us <a href="/recipes/rosemary-chilli-naan">three more ways of jazzing up naans </a>– with rosemary, garlic and mint, or harissa.</p>
<p>Thepla bread is another popular Indian flatbread. Our version of this <a href="/recipes/indian-bread-courgettes-coriander">Indian bread with courgettes &amp; coriander</a> is made in a frying pan. Versions of unleavened, pancake-like <a href="/recipes/roti">roti</a> or <a href="/recipes/collection/chapati-recipes">chapati</a> bread are also ideal accompaniments to spiced sauces.</p>

<p>These lentil-filled snacks (known as kachori) make a great starter or side dish to add to your <a href="/recipes/collection/vegetarian-indian-recipes">veggie Indian spread</a>. The lentil filling starts with a mixture of cumin, fennel and coriander seeds, which are toasted to release all of their aromatic flavour. Then they’re mixed with two different types of lentils, plus even more seasonings for ultimate flavour. It’s a little more effort, but more than worth the final result. Serve with <a href="/recipes/coriander-relish">coriander relish</a> as a refreshing counterpart.</p>
<p><a href="/recipes/papdi-chaat">Papdi chaat</a> is another popular street food in Indian. Savoury crispy discs (papdi) are loaded up with chickpeas, potatoes, raita, green chutney, pomegranate and gram noodles. Surprisingly easy to make and the results are more than fruitful – this recipes makes about 50 papdis so you can feed a crowd!</p>

<p><a href="/recipes/pan-puris">Pani puris</a> bring an element of fun to a popular Indian street food snack. Once the puffed-up discs (puris) have been fried, you make a small opening in the centre to fill with the seasoned <a href="/howto/guide/top-10-chickpea-recipes">chickpea</a> and potato filling, then pour over the herb and spice water (pani) just as you’re ready to eat them. Serve with a sprinkle of pomegranate seeds and sev (spiced crunchy noodles).</p>
<p>For a North Indian favourite, try <a href="/recipes/chicken-drumsticks-with-cashew-turmeric-kalmi-kebab">chicken drumsticks with cashew &amp; turmeric (kalmi kebab)</a>. Marinade chicken legs in a garlicky yogurt, cream and cashew nut paste which is then grilled and topped with rings of red onion.</p>

Some people prefer to serve curry with unadorned <a href="/recipes/collection/rice">rice</a>, so as not to distract from the main event. Try our easy pilau rice, bursting with fragrant spices, or check out John Torode’s <a href="/recipes/spiced-rice-0">spiced rice</a> which is flavoured with curry paste and topped with almonds.</p>

<p>For those who want a little extra kick, there are more ways of flavouring rice than you could shake a bag of basmati at…</p>
<p>Some of our favourites include this easy <a href="/recipes/turmeric-pilau-golden-onions">turmeric pilau with golden onions</a>, while our <a href="/recipes/tomato-spinach-kitchari">tomato &amp; spinach kitchari</a><strong> </strong>– a restorative mixture of lentils and rice – is good enough to be served as a main course. This lightly spiced <a href="/recipes/pistachio-pilau-rice">pistachio pilau</a> uses fried onions as its base, while this <a href="/recipes/super-quick-indian-rice">20-minute rice</a> with frozen peas could be knocked up as you wait for a takeaway main to arrive, and we guarantee it’ll go with your favourite curry.</p>

There’s something uniquely nourishing about a <a href="/recipes/collection/dhal-recipes">dhal</a>, and we can’t think of many other ways of elevating a humble pulse to such dizzying flavour heights. However, achieving true dhal success means it’s not as simple is picking up the first bag of pulses you see. Some dhal recipes require split lentils, and others need them whole. Then there are different colours to choose from, with red (masoor), black (urad) and green lentils holding different flavour and texture qualities. Try our satisfying <a href="/recipes/creamy-black-dhal-crispy-onions">creamy black dhal with crispy onions</a> for a warming feast of flavours.
<p>On the other hand, <a href="/recipes/chana-masala-spinach">chana dhal</a> is actually made from chickpeas, while toor dal is made from yellow-coloured split pigeon peas. If this all sounds a bit complicated, you can’t go wrong with a <a href="/recipes/moong-dhal-makhani">moong dhal makhani</a> which uses mung beans that are cooked in milk, and gently spiced. Although, as you’re cooking with dried pulses, pre-soaking and slow-cooking is key. If you’re eating curry in a hurry, we do have a cheat’s version – our <a href="/recipes/lime-coconut-dhal">20-minute lime &amp; coconut dhal</a> is made from canned lentils. For another classic dhal made with moong beans – and known for its anti-inflammatory properties – try our <a href="/recipes/khichdi">khichdi recipe</a>.</p>

<p>Spuds carry plenty of flavour, are abundant and fill you up quick-time, so it’s no wonder they’re popular in Indian cooking. There’s no definitive recipe for spicy <a href="/recipes/bombay-potatoes">Bombay potatoes</a>, although we have a few tasty variations. Our simple <a href="/recipes/spicy-potatoes">spicy potatoes</a> have peas woven through for added veg credentials. <a href="/recipes/sag-aloo">Sag aloo</a> means spinach and potato (in fact, wherever you see aloo on a menu, you know you’re talking tatty), and this classic side dish will contain a blend of spices, garlic and ginger, fried in a pan with potatoes until soft. Similarly, <a href="/recipes/easy-aloo-chaat">aloo chaat</a> is a popular street food dish, comprised of crispy potato cubes, fried in spices, dressed in a date and tamarind sauce, then topped with a coriander relish and pomegranate seeds. If you’re a fusion fan, try our <a href="/recipes/indian-oven-chips">Indian oven chips</a> – these wedges are flavoured with turmeric, fennel seed, garlic and ginger, and they’re the optimum shape for scooping up sauces.</p>

Our <a href="/recipes/gujarati-cabbage-coconut-potato">Gujurati cabbage recipe</a> has a deep spice profile and contains asafoetida, a pungent root that should be used sparingly but is a gateway spice into Indian cuisine. Or whip up a bowl of the takeaway favourite, <a href="/recipes/saag-paneer">saag paneer</a> for a heartier side, spiced with turmeric and garam masala. Paneer cheese is neutral in flavour, so good for taking up spices and frying it gives a delicious crispy texture. If you want to ditch the dairy, our <a href="/recipes/indian-spiced-greens">Indian spiced greens</a> can be made with any leaves you can lay your hands on.</p>

We adore anything covered in pastry, so it stands to reason we’re a fan of <a href="/recipes/collection/samosa-recipes">samosas.</a> Traditional samosas are made with ghee and refined maida flour, but our recipes use cheat’s filo pastry. Our spinach samosas are even baked, so you forego the bath of bubbling oil. When it comes to filling, samosas will generally contain vegetables or mince, or a combination of both, mildly spiced with garam masala or other spice blends. Our <a href="/recipes/lamb-tikka-samosas">lamb samosas</a> can be made ahead and frozen, ready to pop in the oven for your next curry night.</p>
<p><a href="/recipes/samosa-chaat">Samosa chaat</a> makes a great starter for a dinner party – crispy samosas are layered with a chickpea curry for a more substantial option – feel free to use shop-bought samosa to keep this recipe quick and easy.</p>

Indian cuisine excels in many fields, but when it comes to pickles and chutneys, it seriously knocks the ball out of the park. Shop-bought products are often saccharine, so try our easy <a href="/recipes/mango-chutney">mango chutney</a> for a stunning homemade version. Specialist supermarkets are a great place to source condiments such as tamarind-rich chutneys and potent mango and lime pickle. For those nights when you reach for the chutney only to discover you’re running low, we have instant recipes for you to replicate that tangy, sweet flavour. Our <a href="/recipes/fresh-tomato-chutney">fresh tomato chutney</a> is a little like salsa, while our pea-green <a href="/recipes/tangy-herb-chutney">herb chutney</a> is made from coriander, mint, roasted pistachios and green chilli.</p>
