North Indian cuisine is totally different to South Indian cuisine. The curries are creamy, thick and moderately spicy. The use of dried fruits and nuts is fairly common. Dairy products like milk, cream, cottage cheese, ghee(clarified butter) and yoghurt play an important role in the cooking of North Indian dishes. North Indians prefer breads over rice, so soak up all that lovely gravy with naan or roti. The most important spices used daily are, chilli powder, cardamom, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, garam masala and cloves. Dishes like Mutter Paneer, Biryani, Butter Chicken and Chicken Tikka are some of the famous dishes you should try.
