There is really nothing that I can suggest that would be Indian food that would be suitable for a dog's nutritional needs.  Dogs cannot stand a lot of spices and Indian food, for the most part, is very spicy.  It is also extremely dangerous to feed a dog anything with onion in it, so if you must give her home-cooked food, make sure that it has not been prepared using onion, or even cooked with an onion in it, because the juices that come from the onion are just as dangerous as the onion itself.  It will cause her to develop a Heinz-body anemia, where the red blood cells will burst and be excreted in her urine.  This is a potentially fatal condition.

Are there no prepared dog foods available where you live?  The only things that a dog should be fed are lean meats (chicken, beef, pork, and some fish) cooked with very little salt and no other seasonings, and vegetables that are cooked the same way.  Too much fat in the diet or spicy food can possibly cause pancreatitis, which is VERY painful for the dog.  The best thing to feed her is a well-formulated dog food with very little grain in it.  When you read the list of ingredients, the ones that are listed first are the ones that there are the most of in the food.  Choose a food where the primary ingredient is whatever meat is the basis of the food.  

The most important thing to remember is that the nutritional needs of dogs are completely different from the nutritional needs of humans.
