It’s spicy chickpeas and an extra large fried piece of dough made just for you to shove, as you like, into your face. I’d like two please.


2. Rogan Josh

There’s meat, there’s spices, there’s oil. What more do you need? This Kashmiri dish is to die for. ALWAYS.


3. Butter Chicken

Apologies for putting butter chicken third on the list but somebody had to keep the suspense.


4. Aloo Samosa

All that spiced boiled potato, neatly folded and stuffed in perfect dough to bursting capacity — just for your stupid hungry mouth that’s already drooling.

Rings of fried dough doused in sweet curd, the tangiest chutneys and chaat masala. If you’re asking for more from life, you are a damn devil because that is perfection on a plate.


6. Palak Paneer

I would die right now, metaphorically, if somebody got me a plate with steaming spinach gravy and all that good cottage cheese swimming in it.


7. Nihari Gosht

Nihari is made amazing by the fact that it’s cooked for several hours before it’s served, with a sprinkling of rose water right before it arrives to go into your mouth. If that’s not absolute royal treatment, I don’t know what is.


8. Chicken Dum Biryani

Biryani is basically bae. So you’re ready to pig out on some colourful rice with some fantastically marinated chicken, garnished with green chillies to real get that steam popping out of your ears as you stuff your face.


9. Stuffed Bati

Rajasthan is on top of everything regal, so don’t be surprised to find your bread roll stuffed with paneer and spices, served with a solid side of chutney and dal.


10. Malai Kheer

Just in case you forgot to finish off a scrumptious meal, you’ve got malai kheer, made from condensed milk, rice, cream and nuts. And you’ll get 3 more helpings.

When it comes to North Indian food, Louis C.K aptly said,

“The meal isn’t over when I’m full!”
