Samosa, a stuffed pastry, is a common snack in India, a fried triangular pastry with a savory filling
of spiced potatoes, onion, peas, coriander, or meat.

Tarka Dal is a North Indian dish and is a kind of thick, spicy soup either served with rice or roti bread which you use to scoop it up!  The red lentils (dal) are boiled until they are completely cooked, at which point hot spiced oil (tarka) is stirred in to provide a deliciously spicy, slightly burned flavour.

Roti,
the traditional Indian bread, is eaten with curries or cooked vegetables. It is made most often from wheat flour. Roti is an accompaniment to other foods, maybe spread with ghee (clarified butter).

Kofta is a Middle Eastern or Indian meatball or dumpling and consists of minced or ground beef or lamb - mixed with spices and/or onions.

Kachumber salad cucumber, tomatoes, onion, coriander, cumin, vinegar, salt, lime, pepper.

Kulfi is a popular flavored frozen dessert made with milk. It is a kind of ice cream that comes in various flavors, however, ours is the traditional, delicious kulfi flavored only with Rose Water.  Unlike western ice creams, kulfi is not whipped; it is a solid, dense frozen dessert. Therefore, kulfi is a different kind of an ice cream.
