Is there anything more satisfying after coming in from a cold day than holing up with Indian takeout? The answer is no. From spicy curries to crispy samosas and everything in between, Indian food is comfort on a plate. The good news is, it's nearly as easy to make Indian food in your own home as it is to pick up the phone and dial it in, and there's the added benefit of getting to control the spiciness (which can vary widely from restaurant to restaurant). Here are 10 classic Indian dishes to be made right in your own kitchen and warm you from the inside-out. Sinus-clearing heat is optional.
