Indian cuisine is so diverse that there’s always something to look forward to with each meal, from various flavours to distinct smells to varied presentations. These dishes are backed by Cambridge locals and an Indian restaurant in Cambridge

Read on to learn about the best top 10 Indian food dishes and how you can recreate them for yourself.

1. Chicken Jalfrezi

Chicken Jalfrezi is my personal favourite because of the spices that provide so much flavour. It gives a good kick to your tastebud. Did you know? Jalfrezi originated from the Bengali term meaning spicy (JAL), and frezi means stir-frying. Precooked marinated meats are frequently used nowadays instead of leftovers. Typically served in bite-sized pieces with stir-fried onions, green chillies, peppers, tomatoes, and spices. Chicken and lamb are popular meats, although paneer (Indian cheese), prawns, and vegetarian variations are also popular.

Jalfrezi curries are quick to make and make an excellent midweek supper or part of a multi-course meal when you have more time. Give it a go and you won’t regret it!

2. Chicken Tikka Biryani

Did you know? The popular Indian delicacy of Punjabi Cuisine is Chicken Tikka Biryani Recipe. Boneless chicken is marinated in a spicy mixture of yoghurt and spices before being baked to make excellent homemade Tikka, which is then blended with gravy and long-grain basmati rice. It’s so addictive and delicious! Some dishes are made in different spices but I prefer the one Raja Indian restaurant in Cambridge.

3. Lamb Bhuna

A hot curry is cooked by gradually cooking spices before adding the meat, tomatoes, and stock and then baking it till soft. It’s served with a thick, delicious sauce that sticks to the meat. It’s a very old dish that has been around for many years. Try it and you won’t regret it!

4. Saag Aloo

Saag aloo is made with spinach, potatoes and spices. One of the most common dishes in the UK and it always works well with any dish. The best part of Sag Aloo is the soft potatoes that melt in your mouth. 😍 Try this with pilau rice and you will never stop eating…

5. Chicken Korma

Chicken korma, Chicken korma Chicken korma… Who doesn’t love chicken Korma? It’s a mild curry meal composed of braised chicken breast in a thick, creamy sauce of yoghurt, spices, and nuts (almonds and cashews are favourites), with a delicate flavour of cardamom, rosewater, and saffron. It’s a very popular dish in the UK especially for people who can’t handle the spices.

6. Prawn Biryani

In India, prawn biryani is known as jheenga or jhinga biryani. It’s a shrimp biryani, cooked spicy shrimp masala topped with crisp fried onions and fragrant basmati rice, wonderful!

The flavour of this prawn biryani will linger on your taste senses for so long that it will automatically be included in your weekly menu plan. Serve this delectable biryani with your favourite raita or salad. Trust me on this one. 😋

7. Chicken and Aloo

Now, this is a traditional dish that you would eat at home. It’s so soft, memorable and tasty dish. It doesn’t always exist in the menu but it’s available for you to cook this at home and create memories with your family.

8. Egg-Fried Rice

It’s a dish of boiled or steamed rice that is stir-fried typically with soy sauce, beaten egg, chopped meat, and vegetables. It’s a good source of fibre and protein and has plenty of vegetables too. Perfect for your balanced diet. 😍

9. Chicken Vindaloo

You can’t beat Chicken Vindaloo! One of the most popular recipes in Indian culture is Vindaloo! You can either have meat or vegetables, so you can change it depending on your dietary preferences. It’s an ideal supper for busy families or entertaining dinner guests.

10. Keema Rice

Keema rice is a popular side dish on Indian takeout menus. Until now, you may have been hesitant to order it since you had no idea what it was. After trying this nutrient-dense lamb mince rice meal, you’ll never want to eat plain rice again.

You can use leftover lamb mince to make keema rice, which not only saves money but also enables you to be more environmentally conscious. This keema recipe is a fantastic accompaniment to rich and creamy Indian curries.
