Samosa is a popular snack in Southeast Asia, a fried or baked triangular pastry with a filling which may include spiced potatoes, onion, peas, coriander, and lentils, or ground beef. At tonight’s dinner, there is one samosa.

(meaning "plate" in hindi) is an Indian meal with contents varying from one regional cuisine to another.  A thali is a selection of different dishes, usually served in small bowls. Typical dishes include rice, dhal, vegetables, chapati or naan, yoghurt, small amounts of chutney or pickle, and a sweet dish to top it.

Dhal (also Dal or Daal, or Dahl) is a preparation of pulses (dried lentils, peas or beans) which have been stripped of their outer hulls and split. It is a thick stew prepared from these, a mainstay of Indian, Pakistani, Sri Lankan, and Bangladeshi cuisine.

Biryani is a set of rice-based foods made with spices, rice (usually basmati) and meat, fish, eggs or vegetables.  The name is derived from the Persian word beryā(n) which means "fried" or "roasted".  The Biryani originated in the Indian Subcontinent. Biryani is popular not only in South Asia but also in Arabia.. The dish has many local variants.

Chapati or Chapatti or Chapathi is an unleavened flatbread (also known as roti) from the Indian subcontinent.  Versions of it are found in Turkmenistan and in East African countries Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania.
