I prefer to serve Indian food buffet style, which allow the textures of the bhajis and pakoras to contrast perfectly with the creamy dal and spicy curries.
Bhajis and pakoras, in the UK these are served as the first course, usually fried but can be bake, provide lots of texture and flavour, crunchy and spicy and usually served with chutneys and raita dips
I love the creaminess of dal. plant based dals are a lot lower in saturated fat than their dairy based cousins and not forgetting they high protein and fibre.
Plant based homemade curries are much healthier than takeaways, lower in saturated fat, less salt.
Rice and Breads – the perfect side dish to curries and dal, ideal for soaking up the flavours .
