An Indian meal is a fulfilling personal and social experience...
Guests enjoy perusing the menu with something to drink, while eating a samosa or pakora with some papadums and chuntney. Starting with a soup or salad is typical along with ordering bread (naan or a stuffed bread like aloo paratha) to compliment the main course. Entrees are frequently shared at the table. Finishing with a small dish of kheer or kulfee makes a meal complete.
