Indian-Pakistani Food Primer

Whether you're new to Indian-Pakistani Cuisine and not sure where to start or you're simply looking for something different to try, our quick primer below can introduce you to all the traditional favorites:

Kebab

Dish consisting of small pieces of meat, fish, and/or vegetables threaded onto a skewer and grilled. Shish kebabs use diced cuts of meat, while Seekh kebabs use cubes of seasoned, ground meat (similar to italian meatballs).

Curry

A curry is a paste made of a combination of Indian-Pakistani spices. There are many different curries, using spices like cardamom, chile, cinnamon, clove, coriander, cumin, fennel, fenugreek, nutmeg, poppy seed, saffron, tamarind, and turmeric. 

Tikka

Literally "bits". The term "tikka" in the name of a dish just means the ingredients will be served cut into small pieces.

Tandoor/Tandoori

A deep, round clay oven that reaches very high temperatures. Tandoori refers to a dish cooked in a tandoor.

Naan

Soft, flat Indian-Pakistani bread—similar to a pita or a thick tortilla—traditionally cooked on the inside walls of a tandoor. Naan is often used as a utensil: simply tear it apart and use pieces of it to scoop up your other food.

Masala

A masala is a powdered blend of spices (not to be confused with a curry, which is a paste). Like curries, there are many different masalas that include a wide variety of different spices. 

Paneer

A light, fresh cheese similar to ricotta or cottage cheese, sometimes cut into cubes resembling tofu and mixed into a dish. 

Raita

A cooling yogurt sauce—similar to tzatziki—typically mixed with dill and onions. Raita can be very helpful to counter an especially hot curry!

Potatoes

Saag

Spinach
