The arrival of colder weather means one very important thing: we all want to indulge in vast amounts of comfort food.
Now that the winds have become chillier and the rains icier, it’s safe to assume that many of you are currently wrapped in a blanket, trying to read this blog as you shiver against the cold. More importantly, your stomach just keeps on rumbling, craving the warm spices of a creamy, tangy curry.
Of course, it’s these spices which make Indian food absolutely perfect for the winter months. Not only will it warm (and fill) your belly and satisfy your taste buds, Indian and Pakistani cuisine is known to help fight off the common cold and provide other health benefits throughout this chillier time of year.
But what are the best Indian dishes to eat in winter?
The perfect winter snack, vegetable samosas have always been popular in our restaurants. These warm, filled-pastry treats are always great for fighting off the winter cold, with the hot filling sending a warm, tingly feeling right down to our bellies. Best served piping hot alongside your favourite curry, we’re getting hungry just thinking about them.
The nation’s curry is just as popular in summer as it is in winter, but that doesn’t prevent it from being an ideal dish for the colder months. The thick, creamy sauce is infused with mild Indian spices, marinating chunks of succulent chicken and offering a deep, satisfying palette of flavours. Although it’s by no means the hottest dish on the menu, tikka masala will leave you feeling full, content and, more importantly, warm.
Not much more needs to be said, really.
This traditional South Asian dessert was simply made for the winter months. Made with grated carrot, nuts, milk and sugar, gajar ka halwa is guaranteed to warm your cockles and spread a lovely, tingly sensation through your veins. This is essentially a carrot-based version of rice pudding, a dessert offering real warmth and depth during the colder times of the year.
Now that the cold weather is well and truly upon us, you’ll want to combat the chill at the best Halal restaurant Manchester has to offer. Visit Royal Nawaab today and enjoy some of our deliciously warm curries!
