There’s more to Indian starters than you might think – you’ll see more on these pages than the Bhaji and Pakora that you might expect to find at your local Indian takeaway. Of course, you’ll find authentic recipes for both of those staple menu items too!
You don’t have to limit yourself to just cooking these Indian starter recipes for dinner parties, or even have them as starters at all! Plenty of these dishes make fantastic light bites and snack foods perfect for lunch boxes. And if you’re feeling a little adventurous you could make a few of them and serve as an Indian meze-style meal.
Within these pages you will find inspiration and influence from all over India as well as my own modern twists on classic Indian starter recipes. Whatever skill level you’re at, and however spicy you like your food, there’s something here to tickle everybody’s taste buds.
