Indian dinner recipes starts with a protein

India is a huge country with a widely varied population. Indian cuisine draws on this wide geographic background to create dishes that are noted for specific characteristics. Indian dinner recipes as well as breakfast and lunch recipes typically incorporate the heavy use of spices, rely on vegetables often as a main course and use hot peppers to help add flavor and kick.

Typical Indian dinner recipes starts with a protein such as chicken, fish or beef. Flavors are then built into the dish via the use of ingredients like spice marinades and curries. The recipe will often call for a marinate for at least an hour or even overnight. Many recipes also call for the use of high heat in an oven like a tandoori that can help lock in flavors.

Many Indian recipes also call for the use of additional items like basmati rice or a puffed bread of some sort. The bread is designed to provide a relief from the heat of the dish. Many such dishes also use an additional cooling element made from dairy products such as a yoghurt dip. The dip serves as a counterpoint to the deeply spicy centerpiece of the main element. Other food items that are commonly used in Indian cookery include chickpeas, onions, tamarind, tropical fruit such as mangoes and foods that have been borrowed from the western world such as potatoes and tomatoes.

Explore the wide world of Indian foods by eating at Indian restaurants, buying Indian ingredients for home use and making Indian dinner recipes at home.
