Bhajjiya (also known as Pakora in Hindi) is a spicy Indian snack consisting of fried onions and other vegetables, similar to potato fritters. It is used as a topping on various Indian meals but has now become popular to eat alone as a snack.  The basic recipes consist of onions being chopped and then made into a sort of dough with garbanzo flour, spices, then fried until golden. This is only the second time Pushkar is making an onion bhaji, both times exclusively for the Antigua Curry Club, instead of their usual vegetable bhaji.

Vindaloo is an Indian curry dish popular in the region of Goa.  The name is derived from the Portuguese dish "Carne de Vinha d' Alhos", which is a dish of meat, usually pork, with wine and garlic.  The Portuguese dish was modified by the substitution of vinegar (usually palm vinegar) for the red wine and the addition of red Kashmiri chillies with additional spices to evolve into Vindaloo.

Saag aloo is a creamy savory dish from Northern India containing spinach (saag) and potato (aloo). This versatile vegetarian curry is traditionally associated with the Hindu religion.
