I work in software and have a lot of Indian co-workers. They have taken me to a couple of Indian restaurants. This stuff is pretty darn good! I can’t pronounce what the heck it is. But I will eat the heck out of it!

It is so flavorful. Its so strong that I really don’t think I could eat it more than once a week or less. Butter chicken and the curry rice thing on top of the weird buttered toasted flat bread thingy is awesome!

Who else is liking Indian food?

Curry chicken and Tandoori chicken kicks ass.

Good stuff. But since I moved to Florida the nearest Indian restaurant is over 70 miles away.

How to fool people into thinking you're an international gourmand:


Go to your local Indian grocer, in front of the insanely huge Indian video/dvd rental section you'll find this shit (or something like it labled vindaloo, or curry, or tikka, etc):



Brown up some meat (ground beef, venison, turkey, chicken breast, whatever) - throw in some onions and let them carmelize a little.

Throw in about a quarter to a half jar of this shit and let blaze away for a minute and then throw in a big can of tomato's (whole, chunk, whatever floats your boat) and let that simmer for 20 minutes. After that dump a bunch of chopped cilantro on it and get ready to serve it over rice.

It's the bomb. The jar of India is the key though - gotta have that stuff. Instead of rice you can also pick up some naan (flat bread) and burn that for 20 seconds a side in a hot pan and then just rip off chunks of it and dip it in the shit.

Love it.

Biryani is one of my favs.

It is sort of an Indian fried rice.

But I like it all.

My Indian coworkers only go places that server "real" Indian food.

Indian is some of the best cuisine out there... and it should be... they've been at it for thousands of years. Fantastic stuff. I can't get enough of it, and it hurts so bad that I live in an area that has no Indian food nearby.
Link Posted: 8/24/2005 6:35:46 AM EDT
Never had it... But I can't stand that friggin smell! All the indians at school smell like that, take a shower, have a hamburger.

UPDATE

Just got back from a place called Taj Palace. I just had to undo a belt knotch. Soo full. Some lamb thing that was awsome. Veggie Korma, Butter chicken, the rice with chicken and other stuff in it and the Nan bread stuff.

Where is a drewling smiley?

Its ok, not that great, but I'll eat it maybe once a year.

As for spicy its weak, everything I had the spices were soo weak I could snort a line of them.

I love all Asian (including the sub continent) foods. Indian is one of my favorites.

One of the big worries I have if I leave this area is where to indulge all of my ethnic food cravings.

I like really spicy food, but when I order Indian I say "hot, but not Indian hot"

Can't help you there. I am working over in Fairfax. Although, if you take 28 south to 50 west, and go 50 west about a quarter mile, there is a strip mall on the left with a green roof. In there is a place called Minerva. Its pretty darn good. Around the corner from that is Blue Ridge Arsonal too, so you can eat and then shoot.

Thats the expierence from all 3 I een to, I have only ever found 2 Thai places that were hot enough for me. The rest of them when I ask for it as hot as they can make it look at me like "you gonna die" then bring me some food I dont even need a drink with.

I always thought that in Maryland, bt the Indian places around here in Virginia have lots of meat. No beef of course, but lots of chicken and lamb, and some pork.

Good friend's parents are visiting from India.
The restaraunt food doesn't hold a candle to her cooking.
She makes a bunch of curries while she is here and freezes them for her son to eat later. I try to visit often.

There are a few in Herndon, the one in the clock tower center has allot of different stuff but costs more. Then the K-Mart shopping center has two that are less expensive but have less variety. They all seem decent to me.

Then you don't know how to order. Go to a good Indian restaurant and order Lamb Vindaloo as "Indian hot" and you will be paying for it.

Northern and Southern Indian are completely different cuisines. If I recall (I get them backwards sometimes), Northern eats meat, Southern doesn't. You may have been to a restaurant dominated by Southern Indian cuisine.
