New Year is the best time to get closer to your loved ones by sharing special dishes prepared with recipes passed from one generation to another. Many people still cook these dishes themselves and serve on special occasions. These recipes don’t have to be difficult to cook just because it’s the holiday season. You can also order these dishes from an Indian restaurant Paddington to spend happy times and make memories with your family and friends.
- Chicken Tikka Masala
It is one of the most popular Indian dishes and a perfect staple for every occasion. It is a finger-licking fusion of smoking-hot, thick sauce and tender chicken. Some recipes also add yoghurt marinade to add a different flavor to the chicken and gravy base of cream and tomatoes. It is served hot with fresh naan and rice.
- Tandoori Chicken
Tandoori is a widely used cooking vessel in traditional and rural Indian households. Tandoori chicken is one of the most popular dishes cooked in this vessel. The boned chicken is coated in a blend of yogurt, tandoori spices, oil, and garlic paste and is marinated for several hours. It was cooked in tandoor in the past. This is why it is called “tandoori chicken”. These days, not everyone has a tandoor. So, you can get the same taste and texture by cooking it on a grill.
- Mughlai Chicken
Nothing can match the charm of Mughlai tradition, and this dish is special for special people on special occasions. Luckily, it is not so difficult to prepare. It uses pure ghee to add the rich and aromatic flavor. Chicken is sautéed with ginger, garlic, onion, and spices and blended well with a sauce of cream and grounded almonds. Then, final touch is added by spreading garam masala as a seasoning.
- Palak Paneer
If you are looking for mild taste and you can’t bear spices in food, Palak Paneer is a light alternative to the above recipes. It is a perfect blend of fenugreek leaves, spinach, and tomatoes mashed up and seasoned with Indian herbs. It is served hot with Parathas, Chapattis, or “Makke di Roti” (Indian maize bread fried on the pan).
- Malai Kofta
This recipe is quite lengthy, but its taste is really worth all the effort and time it takes to prepare. It is one of the delicious Indian dishes that both vegetarians and non-veg food lovers can’t resist. It has a blend of paneer, vegetables, traditional herbs, mashed and cooked potatoes, and a heavy cream base to form a dough. The dough is thickened with raisins and nuts, formed in balls, and deep-fried, and then simmered in loaded gravy.
