Naan is a thick, oven baked flat bread. Naan is eaten throughout Central and Southern Asia, and so its consistency and ingredients may vary widely. But traditionally, especially in India, naan is made by mixing white flour with salt, a yeast culture and yogurt. It is served hot and it is amazing.

There are many great Indian dishes. You could try biryani, which is a rice based dish, cooked with basmati rice and special spices and often served with chicken, mutton, fish, eggs or vegetables. You could try Tandoori chicken. Tandoori chicken refers to a special way of roasting a chicken in a tandoor (a cylindrical clay over). It is then prepared with spices and yogurt. Dal is a special stew that is made with dried lentils, peas or beans and is usually served with rice and vegetables. A samosa is fried and spiced dough filled with potatoes, onions, peas, coriander, and lentils. A samosa can also have meat in it, should you desire.
