From Goa to Rajasthan: various regional Indian dishes you’ll find in Brighton
So what are the main differences between Indian regions in terms of cuisine? Dishes actually vary significantly from region to region and utilise herbs, spices and ingredients local to their area whilst also being influenced by religious and cultural elements. When dining in a north Indian influenced restaurant you’re likely to find rich, creamy curries like aloo gobi, samosas, roti and naan breads and a strong use of garam masala and fenugreek. When dining in a south Indian restaurant, you’re going to come across dishes based around rice, lentils and stews. Also, the famous dosa – a lentil and rice crepe – is supremely popular, as is the use of huli pudi sambar powder and tamarind. Luckily in Brighton, Indian restaurants have begun to offer choices from many different regions so guests can sample a variety of different dishes in just one sitting.
