Top 5 Side Dishes To Have With Your Curry

At Spice Lounge Kitchen, our traditional and original dishes offer delicious combinations of spices and herbs that have been perfected from different regions across India. Whether you want to try something mild, or something extremely hot, we cater for every taste. Our Indian side dishes do not overpower the main courses, instead, they complement the main course and work well when eaten together.

There are a variety of Indian side dishes, but some are more common than others. Here are the top five Indian side dishes you have to try.


Naan bread is a classic with Indian cuisine. There’s no better way to mop up your curry sauce than with a delicious naan, which are packed with a heady mix of spices. There are so many different variations of the bread you can choose from which include:

• Plain
• Lacha Paratha
• Butter
• Garlic
• Chilli
• Peshwari


Rice is one of the main additions to a curry dish, and they go with almost all the main foods within Indian cuisine. Rice comes in a variety of flavours, and here at Spice Lounge Kitchen, we offer these four;

• Chawel-e-Khusk: Boiled basmati rice
• Pilau Rice: Basmati rice cooked in brown onions and saffron.
• Chawel-e-Mushroom: Mushroom fried basmati rice.
• Matar Pilau Rice: Basmati rice cooked in green peas, brown onion and saffron.


Potatoes are popular in Indian cooking and are used much more than you may think, as they carry plenty of flavour and filling. Here are just a few examples of foods that contain potatoes;

• Jeera Aloo: A dish of potatoes cooked with cumin seeds and a selection of herbs and spices.
• Punjabi Saag: Spinach and mustard leaves cooked with Punjabi spices. You can add peas or potatoes.
• Masala Dosa: Stuffed dosa with potatoes and mix vegetables blended with an infusion of spices.
• Tandoori Aloo: Stuffed potatoes with a mixture of spices and tantalising dried fruit.


Samosas are a traditional Indian side dish and are very popular. Small in size, samosas can be treated as an appetizer or as a side dish. Samosas have a stuffing that is usually made up of lamb and spices. They are deep-fried and the combination of a crispy exterior with a mouth-watering stuffing makes them irresistible to most people.

Onion Bhajis

This dish consists of thick-cut onion rings that are coated in spices, salt and flour, then deep fried. Onion bhajis are common and a popular hit, and they are often seen and ordered in restaurants as a side dish or as an appetizer.
