What’s your favorite Indian dish—and what do you recommend for first-time visitors?

My favorite Indian dish is kathal ki sabzi, a spicy dish made of young jackfruit. It’s got a bit of a chicken-like texture and is popular with vegetarians. You don’t find it much in restaurants, but it’s worth a try if you can get someone to cook it for you. I think all first-time visitors should try masala dosa, a South Indian crepe-like dish stuffed with seasoned potatoes and served with coconut chutney and lentil stew.
