The flavors of India are as complex, exotic and compelling as the nation itself. To dismiss the cuisine as merely a collection of curries is to bypass the variety and excellence that awaits the adventurous diner.

Treat yourself to delicate dosas, lacy crepes filled with a savory potato and vegetable mixture. Try some spicy, succulent tandoori chicken, accompanied by warm, lush tandoor-baked breads from the same clay oven. Or a biryani (rice dish) studded with lamb or chicken pieces. Or a mellow goat stew.

There’s a huge array of dishes to try and no shortage of restaurants to do them justice.
