Indian food is one of the pillars of Australia’s thrillingly multicultural culinary landscape, with Indian restaurants found in almost every suburb in the country, and Indian recipes on high rotation in almost every home.
We’ve scoured the subcontinent and its many varied cuisines to bring you a new range of our favourite Indian flavours, so you can create a feast that will beat anything served at your local curry place. Use them to create traditional meals, like a spread of lamb vindaloo curry and butter chicken with Garam Masala cauliflower, spiced onion bhaji, naan and a mix of pickles and Kasundi, or use them in your own delicious creations.
