Five Indian Side Dishes to Try

Five Indian Side Dishes to Try

As an Indian Restaurant which has unsurpassed in quality and environment by any other restaurant in Eltham, we know that a meal at an Indian restaurant is a big affair including starters, curries and side dishes that complement the main meals, creating a diverse dining experience. There are a variety of Indian side dishes, but here we have put together some of the common ones that you may give a try.


Bread is one of the most common side dishes that people choose for their curry. It can fit any main dish of your choice. Naan is a leavened north Indian flatbread, which is traditionally baked by slapping the bread dough onto the side of a hot dome shaped clay oven referred to as a tandoor. Naan can also be flavored with garlic or black pepper for an extra kick. There are also other varieties of Naan available, stuffed Naan being very popular. There are so many different variations of the bread you can choose from which include, Peshwari, Keema, Garlic, Cheese, Stuffed Paratha etc.


While a few might choose to eat curry with Steamed Rice, others may prefer a full taste experience and may opt for more flavoursome rice dishes. There is of course the Pilau Rice; cooked in a mix of saffron and brown onions. There is also Coconut Rice, Mushroom Rice and Special Fried Rice. Whatever choice of rice, we guarantee that they match perfectly with any curry for the full taste explosion.


Potatoes are also very popular in Indian cooking. Bombay Aloo, Aloo Gobi, Saag Aloo are a few examples of dishes that contain potatoes;


This is probably the best known traditional Indian Side Dish. It is a type of type of baked pastry with savoury fillings in a triangle shape. The fillings may include potatoes, onions and peas and minced meat. It is sometimes served with a chutney sauce.

Onion Bhaji

Indian Fritters, commonly recognised as 'Bhaji' are fried dishes generally made from a mixture of vegetables coated in a richly seasoned batter made from gram flour. Onion Bhaji is Onion slices marinated with fresh ginger, garlic and aromatic pickled spices. Much like the Samosas, it is sometimes served with a chutney sauce.
