Indian restaurant in L.A. that serves tarka dal?
i have traveled far and wide and my best advise for consuming this dish is to move to england....there are about 50 indian restaurant's per city there all making there own version of tarka dhaal....each with a subtle variation......this dish is a perfect starter to any indian meal,but can also act as a main with chapattis or rice
BlackbookAli is right that the best Tarka Dal is to be found on Melrose but not at Star of India.
Indira - a couple doors down is by far the best for the garlicky goodness I've found in LA and has become one of my favorite Indian restaurants!Even my wife is hooked and she didn't used to like Indian!!
The 'consistancy' of the dish can sometimes vary slightly.... but always delicious!!!
Quick tip. Get one of their take-out menu's. Not only do they offer a $10off coupon with the purchase of a couple of entrees but they've allowed me to re-use the coupon multiple (and I mean multiple) times.
Address 7166 Melrose. Cross St Detroit or Formosa.
