According to chef bloggers of the Indian restaurant in Terrigal, “There is one common question which is usually asked by our regular blog visitors which says – ‘How to plan for cooking Indian food?’ Usually, there are so many tips which are followed by the people when they are preparing the Indian food. But in today’s blog, we are going to enlist the common but the most required tips which every person intending to cook Indian food must know.’
These tips are going to be extremely helpful to you since they are followed by every Indian restaurant in Sydney. So without wasting much time, let’s move on to the blog:
Try to observe the colour of your dishes
There should never be a single dish that dominates the menu. There should be many. Try to have variety on your plate. There should be dishes of different colours like:
- Toor Dal (It is a turmeric spiked curry)
- Kashmiri Saag or Bhindi Do pyaza (These are considered as the healthy greens)
- Tomato Chutney or the Tomato Based Curry (The tangy reds)
- Rice or Yogurt (These are healthy whites)

Those who are beginners in cooking Indian food are of the view that everything Indian does not need to be doused in garam masala.

It is to be made sure that there should be only one ultra spicy gravy at the meal. To make sure that its spiciness can be balanced, there should be some kind of cooling food along with it like the raita or the buttermilk.
Avoid the overuse of the ingredients
I agree that there are some ingredients which do provide a great flavour and taste. But it is also to be made sure that the excessive use of certain ingredients should not be done. It would ruin the whole palate.
For example: If we are talking about the garam masala, then it is intensely flavourful. This could be one of the main reasons that the housewives fo put it in abundance when some relative has to show up. But that is the wrong and the flavour destroying thing to do.
Incorporate some digestive dishes also
If your menu has all the items which may fall heavy on your stomach then you must make sure to incorporate some other dishes as well that aids digestion. And that can only be done if the following ingredients are to be used:
- Carron Seeds
Place Salad alongside
A salad plate full of sliced refreshing vegetables like the following must be unforgettable to be placed alongside the meal:
