Taste of India

Monday afternoon was the first time a few of us indulged in tasting Indian food, and may I state here and now that it was not only flavorful, but absolutely delicious. Are you intimidated by cooking Indian food? Well don’t be, after perusing the menu I felt confident that I could try my hand at preparing a few of the dishes such as Tandoori Phool {cauliflower florets with mint chutney} or Sarson da Saag {which are mustard greens and spices such as garam masala, ginger and garlic.

Visiting the Punjab Grill allows one to dine in luxury as if the invitation came from the Maharajah himself. The excessive interior is striking upon entering the restaurant, each room was assembled in India and then carefully transported in five shipping containers to the United States. The result is decadence at its best with white mother-of-pearl inlay walls, emerald chairs along with polished granite surfaces.

Before closing I must focus on an ornate dessert that was served with coffee; it’s a treat called “shahi tukra”, which is a mango mousse, kulfi and saffron bubble glass, and was most tasty.

  1. I was in India back in February and as part of our tour, we did a cooking class. I was surprised at how healthy Indian food is….well, as long as you go easy on the ghee and the sugar! 🙂 Can’t wait to try some of the recipes at home. Happy Easter, Mel

    1. Wow, how fantastic to have taken a cooking class while in India, that is truly a well rounded trip. I was able to chat with a few of the staff while in the restaurant about food preparation and how they got the cauliflower and mustard greens to taste so delicious!!!

  3. The dessert and coffee look mouthwatering and I love the picture of you. My girlfriend and I dine on Indian cuisine occasionally and nothing compares to the spices they use and the flavors they elicit.
