Recommended Indian Dishes for Spring 

While winter often calls for heavy, comforting meals that warm your soul and keep your spirits high, you might want to switch to lighter, more refreshing dishes for spring. The good news is, Indian cuisine is surprisingly diverse, offering a wide range of mouth-watering delights for the warmer months. So whether you fancy looking up an ‘Indian takeaway near me’ and dining out or grabbing a takeaway, here are several options to consider. 

1. Chicken Tandoori 

If you want to stay away from ghee, butter and heavy cream in a bid to lose weight for summer, but you still want to enjoy delicious Indian cuisine, then chicken tandoori is ideal. With tender chicken on the bone marinated in yoghurt and traditional spices, this is a healthy yet mouth-watering main. It goes particularly well with mint yoghurt dipping sauce and a side salad. Or you can order it with a fragrant Peshwari naan or boiled rice. 

2. Grilled Salmon

Another option you could choose is diced salmon marinated in fresh herbs and spices and then grilled in the Tandoori oven. Doesn’t that sound tempting? Fish dishes are great for spring and are even more special when enhanced with Indian flavours. If you’re not a fan of salmon due to its distinctive taste, there are other fish options you can choose. Tandoori fish, for example, is usually sea bass cooked in the Tandoori oven or you could opt for a king prawn version.

3. Paneer Tikka 

While chicken tikka masala is delicious in the midst of winter, you can keep things light and fresh with paneer tikka in spring. This dish consists of diced cheese known as paneer that’s marinated in spices and cooked in the tandoori oven. It’s often served on skewers for impeccable presentation and is a top choice when temperatures rise as it cuts out the heavier sauce of a masala.

4. Bhuna Eggs

Let’s face it, spring isn’t always lovely and warm in the UK. So you might need something spicy to help warm you up. Bhuna eggs is a creative Indian dish that consists of medium hot eggs cooked with a delicious blend of fresh herbs and spices. 

5. Saag Prawn 

A light but wonderfully scrumptious dish, saag prawn is all about the seafood. It features fresh-water prawns cooked in spinach with onions and a variety of special herbs. This can be served with a range of side dishes such as bhajis, breads and rice as well as various dips.

6. Rogan Josh

If you like your food saucy but not overly creamy or heavy, this one’s for you. Rogan Josh consists of diced mutton cooked with tomatoes, green peppers and served in a medium spiced sauce.
