Saag Paneer

This one is crazy popular in India but has many lovers in Seattle too. “Saag” means spinach and “Paneer” refers to a type of milk curd cheese. Saag Paneer has pureed spinach cooked with freshly ground spices and paneer. It is a vegetarian dish that is served with boiled Basmati rice. Just try it once, and you are sure to enjoy every bit of it, right to the part where you are licking your fingers!

Tandoori Chicken Salad

This interesting fusion salad is the perfect combination of Tandoori chicken, asparagus, and crisp romaine lettuce. The delicious salad is dressed with raisins and mango dressing. 

“Tandori” refers to an age-old cooking method in India. In this, an enclosed metal or clay oven called Tandoor is used. The meat is marinated using a variety of Indian spices and herbs and then cooked in the high heat from the wood or charcoal that burns at the base of the oven. This method cooks the meat perfectly – infusing it with the delightful flavors and aromas of the ingredients ads well as the wood or charcoal. 

The salad is made even tastier with the help of crunchy asparagus and romaine lettuce. Such a great way to eat healthily!

Kashmiri Chicken

This tempting Indian dish is created by cooking boneless chicken with fruits and mild spices in a heavenly cream sauce. The flavors blend and complement each other perfectly, giving you the perfect dish to enjoy with a loved one. 

Chicken Curry 

Indian food is incomplete without a good ol’ curry. The Chicken Curry is made by cooking chicken in a divine tomato and onion sauce, flavoring it with the perfect choice of Indian spices. It can be enjoyed with rice as well as with chapati, the traditional Indian bread.
