Best Indian Food Specialties From India Bistro in Ballard

Indian cuisine is built on a foundation of special spices and flavors that have been passed down for centuries. Although Indian dishes may vary in presentation or cooking style, the recipes all use the same fundamental seasonings and meat selections that make authentic Indian food such a popular culinary delicacy. 

One of the most important aspects of authentic Indian food is spices. Indian food is notorious for packing a serious flavor punch in each dish. Some of the most popular spices used in Indian cooking include cardamom, turmeric, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, and ginger. Recipes have incorporated these spices plus many others for centuries, giving Indian food proper recognition as one of the most delicious and interesting cuisines in the world. 

Our menu at India Bistro in Ballard, Washington, is full of the exciting and aromatic flavors of Indian cooking. Here are a few of our most popular items on the menu that truly celebrate the tradition of Indian cuisine: 

Indian food has a long-standing tradition of cooking with lamb. Our Lamb Tikka Masala continues with this tradition using boneless lamb marinated in ginger, yogurt, and spices, all cooked in tandoori, simmered with gravy, and served with basmati rice

Chicken Coconut Curry

Coconut is sometimes used as a thickening agent in Indian curry, as well as a way to balance out the intense flavor of Indian spices. The Chicken Coconut Curry on our menu features tender chunks of chicken breast cooked with coconut milk and our special blend of spices.

Jheenga Biryani

Basmati rice is an important part of Indian cuisine. Grown in India, basmati rice is longer and thinner than most other types of rice, without being sticky. Our Jheenga Biryani dish makes basmati rice the star ingredient, pairing it with jumbo prawns and a selection of Indian spices.
