What to order for the first time in India
What is masala
Most Indian dishes will be called masala, for example veg masala or chicken masala, which are vegetables or meat in a thick, aromatic spicy sauce.These types of dishes should be eaten with chapatti, nan and rice.
If anyone wants to try a potato dish I would recommend Jeera Aloo (potatoes with cumin) or aloo palak (spinach and potatoes).
As for alcohol, the best choice would be beer (Kingfisher) or whisky (Royal Stag, Bagpiper), or maybe rum (Old Monk, Bacardi).
Wine isn't so popular and is the most expensive.
For a typical Indian breakfast, it's worth ordering a pancake called aloo paratha with vegetables like cauliflower (gobi paratha), potatoes (aloo paratha) eaten with sort of curd (raita) and sour and spicy pickles (mango pickle).
Don't forget about THALI
Being in India, be sure to try the ready-made set of small THALI Indian dishes in the veg or non veg version. Thali consist of rice, Indian bread, various masala, curd, pickles and sometimes something sweet.
Soups in India
They are not very common, but you can try spicy man chow soup, less spicy tomato soup or corn soup.
