Indian cooking is as refined as it is spicy, accompanied by a variety of breads, rice and sauces. Most recipes use a mixture of spices such as turmeric, curry powder, tandoori paste, vindaloo paste and the garam masala spice blend. Popular traditional dishes include tandoori chicken, lamb biryani, samosas, chicken curry and spicy onion chutney. Classic Indian fare also boasts a variety of vegetarian dishes such as vegetable curry, red lentil dal, or stew, and vegetable pakoras.
