samosas these are a popular spicy snack which is similar to the spring rolls, execpt that instead of rolling the sheet it is folded into triangular shape the stuffing inside the samosa is usually potato, paneer(cottage cheese) etc it is enjoyed with chutneys

I love Vindaloo - any type but chicken in particular. I mix my own spices, but basically it's a wet curry with tomatoes, lots of chillies (HOT), and vinegar. I usually put more vinegar than in the recipe because I like the sour taste too. YUM! Now I'm hungry!

My favourite Indian food is butter chicken and it is curried. I say it's the best because it's suits my own personal taste. We have a take-out restaurant nearby that specializes in Indian cuisine and so far it's my fave! I usually pick some up once a week and eat over rice.

I really like Chicken Tikka Masala - but I think it is a British-Indian food, and you don't find it in India!

I think you can only find it in Britain! It's spicy, the masala/dressing is red, and it tastes great. I think it contains chillies, other spices and a bit of yoghurt. Most British supermarkets will stock micowave Chicken Tikka, and most British-Indian take aways do it also. I think it originated when Indians first emigrated to Britain in the 60's and they found that we natives liked gravy dishes rather than dry dishes, and meat dishes rather than vegetarian and they invented Chicken Tikka, which has a Tikka sauce/gravy. Recently (in the 90's), in Birmingham, saw the invention of a new dish - the Balti. Again invented by British-Indians and not found in India. That's fusion culture for you!
