Our Guide To Indian Side Dishes

October 10, 2016

When you sit down in a top notch Indian restaurant, such as Nawaab, you will undoubtedly find yourself completely spoilt for choice. The range of curries on offer can be a little intimidating when you first sit down, especially when you simply cannot choose between a rogan josh and a madras. The number of different flavours and spices on offer can make the mind boggle, and you may find yourself staring wide-eyed at the range of options available as you struggle with your own indecisiveness.

Along with the wealth of choice available with the different curries out there, you also have a wide range of side dishes to choose from. Well, we’re here at Nawaab to give you a brief guide to the most popular Indian side dishes throughout the UK- to help you with the big decision of what to order along with your favourite curry!

  1. Bread

An absolute must for any curry dish is to ensure that you have some form of bread side dish accompanying it. Not only does this add an extra layer of depth and taste to your meal, but also gives you another way of actually eating your curry. In Pakistani cuisine, it is actually traditional to only use naan breads to eat the curry, rather than using any cutlery. Naan breads give you a way of soaking up every ounce of flavour from your curry, and are a great way of mopping up any excess sauce that you don’t want to see go to waste!

  1. Vegetables

Most Indian side dishes can be quite carb-heavy, meaning that they might not be up your street if you’re watching your figure. Not to worry, Indian cuisine also offers a wide variety of green side dishes that are both delicious and complementary to your choice of curry. Vegetables such as broccoli and cabbage are incredibly popular within Indian cooking, and are a perfect addition to any of our curries. If you are a vegetarian, then a green side dish might be just what you’re after!

  1. Potatoes

Going back to the carbs, Indian potatoes really bring life to your curry and pack the whole dish with an extra punch of flavour. Dishes like Sag Aloo and Bombay potatoes are a delicious mixture of spinach and potato, and they are perfect for anyone looking to add a bit of extra spice to their meal.

At Nawaab, we offer a wide range of side dishes to go alongside our delicious selection of curries, and that’s why we are the best Indian restaurant in Manchester!
