Me too! Although I would bet you eat the vegan Indian food -- and I've been eating the other stuff. It has occurred to me, though, that a large percentage of Indians are vegetarian, so those dishes might be more authentically Indian. So what would you recommend if I wanted to try something like that (keeping in mind that I don't do cheese, so no paneer please!)?

Anyway, the chapli kababis were awesome. Aromatic, flavorful, and spicy -- I might be experiencing some heartburn later on today, but it will be worth it. They are basically meat patties (minced beef) with numerous spices mixed in, served with rice, onions, and cilantro. There were 5 levels of spiciness to choose from, and I opted for "Hot" (maybe next time I will try "very hot"). Even the rice was aromatic and flavorful -- not your everyday bland white rice. I would give it 5 stars, and will definitely have it again.

I like chana masala, lentil curry, naan, veggie samosas, aloo gobi, spinach saag (okay I'm getting hungry now Laugh out load )

I have been to some restaurants that add milk to the chana and dal--so you just need to ask them to be sure if you are trying to avoid those things.

Very hot is a lot hotter than hot. It can be a health risk. I have seen someone almost suffocate.... we had to carry him out and administer someone else's asthma inhaler... and he was a strapping young man, too. So be careful with the very hot.... if you must try, order hot and some extra spice on the side and add teeny tiny amounts until it's not fun anymore.

RE: What did you eat today?
Going into town today to find some gardening supplies - and will stop off on the way home to get some Pizza. This is a very rare treat for me, I love it but only eat it like twice a year.

Oh, I don't have a problem with milk (or butter, or ice cream -- ice cream is in fact my favorite food) -- just cheese!

Thanks for the suggestions.

I usually get mild if I'm going to a new restaurant, just to see how hot it is. I notice every restaurant I've been to has a different idea of spicy. Wink

I'm pretty careful with that, but the person who wrote the review that pointed me to this place said he asked them to make the vindaloo (which I haven't tried yet) "as hot as they could make it", and it wasn't all that hot. A lot of restaurants (in this area at least) tend to be afraid of making things too hot -- maybe because of the type of scenario you describe. If I do try the "very hot", I will sample it sparingly at first to make sure I can handle it. But thanks for the warning.
