The most popular dishes outside of India are known to be butter chicken, tandoori chicken, rogan josh, dal makhani and more. These are all the north Indian cuisines, then comes south Indian, east Indian and west Indian cuisines.

Next is Biriyani, of which there are several types, with Lucknawi, Hyderabadi, Kolkatan and Malabari among others. The world learned to relish vegetarian and vegan food from India as almost 30% to 40% of the Indian population is vegetarian due to various reasons.
