Top Indian Foods and Its Benefits & Foods that are liked by Australians

The Land Down Under is literally known for its love affair with Indian foods and Indian restaurants. So, it goes without saying that the fan base for Indian dishes is growing rapidly since the 1960s when the Aussies had started traveling to India. 

Indian food has got popularity not only in Australia but also across the world due to the introduction of our dishes to popular cities like Los Angeles, New York, Paris, Madrid, and London. This is why the world has understood that Indian dishes are not all about curries. With that said, here are some of the most popular Indian dishes that are loved by Australians – 

Butter Chicken 

It literally deserves the top position as the most vital Indian curry on It’s Mirchi menu. This dish is truly delicious (see its popularity in online reviews by restaurant-goers and foodies). This main course obviously has chicken filled in softly spiced gravy with hints of creamy potato and cashew nuts. This Indian main course is a must-try in our restaurant. Along with being delightful, butter chicken also has some health benefits like – 

  • Rich in Fiber and Carbohydrates – A serving contains around 14g of carbohydrates and 3g of fiber. 
  • Loaded with protein – Up to 35% of calories from a healthy diet comes from protein. One serving contains around 30g of protein that can easily meet half of your daily needs of protein. 

Dal Makhani 

For those non-veg lovers who think that vegetarians have limited choices, taste some Dal Makhani. It is the most popular vegetarian curry filled with nutrition for our body and delectable taste. It brings a whole lot of protein and vitamins from kidney beans, lentils, garlic and ginger to make a blissful taste. You will fall in love with the combination of flavors this curry offers. It has always been the best choice for dining out. 

Veg Samosa

Veg Samosa is a perfect staple for every Indian breakfast. It is an ultimate starter and personal favorite for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians. It is a great appetizer with mildly spiced potatoes and peas filling wrapped in Indian-style pastry and is fried and served with delectable Tamarind sauce. 

Tandoori Chicken Tikka 

And last but not least. Tandoori Chicken Tikka is one of the most popular Indian dishes for a reason. It is both flavor-rich and delicious. It has mouth-watering boneless chicken thighs marinated in creamy Indian yogurt and spices. Then, it is grilled in Tandoor (a clay oven) and served with hot and spicy mint chutney. It is another great starter for Indian dining.
