Indian Food Names-A to Z: A couple of days back, I was watching a video on YouTube, in which an Indian guy was asking different people that what do you love about India. Most of the people answered Indian food.

So I was thinking that there should be a complete list of Indian dishes and the best source for their recipes. Here I am providing you with a list of Indian dishes, Indian food names A to Z. And also link to their recipes. I also posted a list of famous foods in India in my previous blog post.
