Welcome to our Y4Food glossary of food terms. We all love a good takeaway be it Chinese, Indian, Italian or Thai. However, do you know what ‘amchoor’ is or what ‘korma’ means. Perhaps you want to try a ‘Szechuan’ dish but are not sure what it is. Don’t worry our glossary is an easy to understand glossary which should help you find out just what everything means.  If you would like to see something included into the glossary, please do leave a comment below.

Balti
Translated this means bucket. It is used to describe British Indian curries.

Bhuna
You will see the term ‘bhuna curry’ on an Indian takeaway menu. Bhuna actually refers to stir fried dishes.

Bhaji
These are deep fried balls of onion and batter made form gram flour which is derived from chana dhal. The name can be a little confusing because restaurants use the term “bhaji” both for the deep fried onion sort and for various dishes e.g. bhindi bhaji, brinjal bhaji, which are vegetables cooked in a little curry sauce.
